Barin helps bring down fire damaged trees in Australia
By Maria Hadlow27 February 2009
A number of Barin aerial platforms have been helping in the clear-up after the catastrophic fires that have swept across the Victoria Territory at the beginning of February.
The Barin truck mounted aerial platforms are being used to help cut back burnt and damaged trees along major road routes, which might cause a danger to traffic.
The platforms being put to work are mounted on four-axle Scania P380 truck chassis. They have a maximum working height of 60 m and a 30 m outreach. Workloads between 280 and 440 kg can be accommodated.
The long outreach of the platforms and the +/-1600 rotation of the platform makes it easier to negotiate around the trees.
