Elliott product serves as material handling aerial platform
E160 Material Handling work platform
Elliott Equipment unveiled a “two-in-one” long-reach aerial at Conexpo 2014 on Thursday.
The E160 e-line material handling aerial work platform features a 64m working height, high-capacity work platform and a seated rotating control station mounted on a commercial truck or track vehicle carrier.
“It’s a material handling, aerial platform,” said David Phillips, manager of global business development and marketing at Elliott. “It’s a two-in-one solution.”
The aerial is designed for utility and construction work requiring greater vertical reach, equipment reliability and functionality. The aerial was designed to be ANSI 92.2 compliant, which eliminates the ANSI B30.5 “test pick” requirement when using a crane with a basket.
The full working height is reached by utilising a 9.7-16.7m telescopic jib on the side of the 49m telescopic five-section boom. The aerial is controlled from either the lower seated control station or within the platform using Elliott’s proportional wireless remotes with integrated LMI display.
For material handling, the E160 includes a 6,800kg capacity main winch with corrosion-proof synthetic rope for reduced weight. A two-stage outrigger system reduces set-up times and cribbing.
The E160 can be mounted on a conventional truck chassis or a track carrier.
