Time International will launch six new van mounted Versalift models in the Light Duty, Medium Duty and the Heavy Duty ranges at bauma 2013.
They form part of a comprehensive product re-development project by the company that has taken place over the last 18 months.
The light duty ET-line consists of three models offering working heights from 10 to 12 m and are designed for 3.5 tonne vans. The new modern design is simple and light but rigid and strong, said the company. All models are equipped with fixed fly jibs and are suited to street light and CCTV maintenance. New on the stand will be the Versalift ET-120, mounted on a MB Sprinter.
The medium ET-line includes four models offering working heights from 12.5 – 15 m, mounted on 3.5 tonne vans, with up to 230 kg bucket capacity. From that line, the new Versalift ET-140-F, mounted on a 3.5 tonne MB Sprinter, will be on show.
The heavy duty VT-line includes seven models offering working heights from 13 to 19 m. They can be mounted on vans from 3.5 to 7.5 tonnes GWV. Outreach is up to 11 m. At bauma the company will show the new Versalift VT-155-FZ and the Versalift VDT-170-F, both mounted on 5 tonne MB Sprinters.
The company will also introduce its VersaliftX model. It offers a 24 m working height and can carry 200 kg at 9 m outreach. It can work parallel to a building wall from ground level to 21 m working height, and reach 3 m below ground level. The VTX-240 features a telescopic upper boom, as well as a telescopic lower boom. Transport height is 2.35 m and it incorporates a memory-positioning system
Finally, the new Versalift LDT-140-TB is specifically designed for pick-ups and small chassis. The LDT-140-TB is designed to be light and compact with a 3-stage telescopic boom and offers a working height of 14 m. It is mounted on a VW Amarok with a GVW of 3 tonnes.
