Iveco Daily 4x4 climbs to new heights with Cumberland Industries UK
By Maria Hadlow22 September 2010
Access platform manufacturer Cumberland Industries UK is aiming to help utility companies, local authorities and arborists to drive down fleet replacement costs with its new 20 m double articulating access platform mounted on the Iveco Daily 4x4 chassis.
Luke Thurston, sales manager said, "The Daily's versatile chassis makes it ideally suited to this role, and its excellent off-road credentials provide a true go-anywhere solution.
"At just over £80000 for the complete package, the Daily 4x4 represents a significant saving over some of the pricier off-road commercial vehicle chassis on the market, which can cost around £140000 when mounted with identical access equipment. In the current climate there is a real demand to drive down fleet costs, and we're expecting significant interest in this new addition to our range."
The demonstrator is based upon a Daily 55S18DW chassis plated at 5.5 t and mounted with a 20 m double articulating access platform offering unlimited rotation and an impressive 225 kg basket capacity. Even when operating fully fuelled with a driver and passenger the vehicle still affords a generous payload allowance of over 435 kg.
Fleets not requiring the full 20 m operating height can opt for 16 m or 14 m models, which allow an increase in payload capacity to approximately 800 kg and one tonne respectively. Cumberland Industries also offers fully-insulated booms for work on live power lines.
The Daily 4x4 has a custom-built sub frame and outriggers, designed in-house by Cumberland Industries, which means no on-board ballast is required.
