Youngman adds first self propelled BoSS
By Maria Hadlow01 February 2011
The Youngman Group is launching a self propelled model to its range of BoSS X-Series micro scissor lifts.
Youngman says that the BoSS X3X-SP is designed to be the smallest, lightest and most manoeuvrable self-propelled lift available.
The X3X-SP has a maximum working height of 5.14m and and safe working load 150kg. An overall width of 0.76m, allows the machine to easily pass through a standard doorway or into a passenger lift.
The machine is can turn within its own footprint of 1.27m, including when at full height and with the 0.4m platform extension in place. Because the platform can be driven from work point to work point without the operator having to dismount and push the unit each time can save time and effort, which may result in a greater volume of work being undertaken each day. A castor lock feature ensures straight line driving when required as well as pothole protection activation.
The BoSS X3X-SP weighs 495kg and the new lift also has many of the standard features found on the push-around range including a tilt sensor and overload protection as well as easy-to-access serviceable components mounted within a slide-out compartment.
The machine can be seen for the first time at the Executive Hire Show, Coventry, UK.
