Rough terrain launch from Time
By Euan Youdale09 May 2014
Time International is expanding its range with the articulated telescopic LAT-38-135-H mounted on a 4x4 Ford Ranger pickup truck.
The fully hydraulic platform is aimed at the rough terrain market, namely outside urban environments. The standard model is low voltage insulated, rated at 1 kV, but further insulation is available through a fiberglass insert in the fixed flyboom/jib.
The LAT-38-135-H, which will be shown for the first time at Vertikal Days, has a working height of 13.5 m with an outreach of 6.4 m at the standard cage capacity of 200 kg. The cage is accessed from the ground with the telescope extended in the transport position. The capacity can be expanded to 250 kg.
Stability is provided through two sets of outriggers on the flatbed – radial at the front and A-frame on the rear. Controls are fully hydraulic.
“We believe the future belongs to compact, lightweight and highly accessible access platform vehicles,” said a company spokesman.
The LAT-38-135-H weighs in at just under 2.9 tonnes on the single cab Ford Ranger 4x4 pickup, making it accessible to operators with a standard drivers licence. The platform will be available as a kit or complete assembly and will also be available for Isuzu D-Max and Toyota Hilux 4x4 pickups.
Vertikal Days takes place 14-15 May, Haydock Park, Newton-Le-Willows, UK.
