APS takes Isoli on the road
By Sarah Ann McCay17 February 2014
Access Platform Sales Ltd (APS), the UK distributor for Isoli, has introduced the UK's first PTJJ36.29 truck mounted boom.
The company will take it on a national roadshow that will see the unit visit potential customers, including rental companies, throughout March.
The Isoli PTJJ36.29 is a 36 m telescopic boom mounted on an 18 tonne two-axle truck. Features include a two-stage telescopic dual jib and four-position stabilisers with automatic working envelope control.
It has a maximum capacity of 400 kg and can achieve an outreach of 24 m, rising to 29 m with 120 kg safe working load. The platform has automatic self-levelling with enhanced memory functions and a home function, which automatically retracts the boom and takes the operator back to the memorised position.
Italian manufacturer Isoli previewed a prototype at Bauma 2013, dubbed the PTJJ36.27. It has since further developed the concept and the production model has an additional 2 m of outreach.
The APS – Isoli road show sets off from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire on 3 March 2014 and will visit a number of key locations in the UK.
