Palfinger P640 MEWP

The Palfinger P 640 MEWP has a working height of 64 meters and a lateral outreach of 38.2 meters. The up and over of this access platform are truly impressive. The cage rotates an impressive 2 x 200° allowing it to swivel round and allow you to work comfortably from the basket alongside the building.

This MEWP has an impressive 600 kg safe working load allowing plenty of people and equipment lifting capability.  It is available for hire with a cage winch which is integrated with the MEWPs operating system.

This access platform comes with 24DC, 110V, 230V and 400V power supply available in the MEWP basket, which many of our customers will find useful for working at height with power tools.

Precise positioning of the MEWP basket is achieved by the 240° X-jib and the 2 x 200° rotation of the MEWP basket.

This MEWP has inbuilt safety systems such as automatic levelling system that ensures the access platform can be set up as straight as possible, and a fully automatic lubrication system to supply the lower boom telescopes with grease during operation.
