The Belgian signage and advertising company Publilux has taken delivery of a custom-made unit featuring a 17m working height Versalift access platform and a knuckle boom crane from the Belgian Versalift distributor, HDW Belux. The unit was designed and constructed by Time International in Farsoe, Denmark.

The base of the unit is a 19 tonne Mercedes-Benz Antos, with custom chassis height and two sets of extendable H-frame outriggers. The truck features the 17m Versalift VDT-170-F platform fitted with an aluminium cage with a capacity of 230kg and 2 x 85° rotation. The FPC controls of the platform has variable outreach depending on the cage load and auto setup and packing (Home function). The maximum outreach is 11m with 120kg or less in the cage.

Mounted at the rear end of the chassis, a Palfinger PK10002 SH knuckle boom crane completes the unit. It is radio controlled, and has a lifting capacity ranging from 450kg to 2,050kg across its diagram and a maximum outreach of 14m.
