Heavy duty Versalift given go-ahead
By Euan Youdale03 September 2015
Versalift UK has obtained type approval on the Isuzu D-Max pick up mounted with the new fully hydraulic, heavy duty Versalift LAT135-H.
The type approval covers the mounting of the Versalift platform, along with the uprating of the standard single cab pick up to 3.5 tonne GVW on off-road tyres. The LAT135-H has a working height of 13.3 m, an outreach of 6.1 m, 230kg SWL platform capacity and has been tested to the highest stability standard.
Versalift sales director Andy Bray, said, “After consultation with our utility customers, we can offer real innovation with this new platform. Our new short front radial outriggers exert far lower stresses upon the vehicle chassis than conventional ‘A’ Frame, whilst addressing the misconception that the outrigger spread is increased, but also improve stability whilst working at height. The low travel height has significantly improved the driving experience, both on and off road”.
An innovative boom stow mechanism enables entry to the walk in bucket from both the chassis and ground level. Options include certified LV insulation, earth bonding and Chapter 8 compliance.
During the first week of September, Versalift UK will obtain type approval on the uprated 3.5 tonne GVW Toyota Hilux single cab pick-up.
