Self-drive customers are going to love the safety features on this van mount platform.

To assist with safe positioning the A-frame outriggers are within the mirrors. The knuckle / turret tail swing is also within the mirrors of the van. The profiled boom is manufactured from ultra-high strength steel which delivers exceptional rigidity, strength and smooth platform operation.

With up to 13.5 meters of working height and up to 8.4 meters of lateral outreach this really is the perfect van mounted platform for electrical contractors and high level motorway maintenance work. The 420° turret rotation allows you to position the MEWP cage exactly where you need to work.
