Palfinger lifts the bar with 90m work platform
New 90 meter work platform lifts the bar for Palfinger
Palfinger Platforms has launched the 90m working height P900 Top Class truck mount at Bauma 2013.
The model has a lateral outreach of 32.3m with a cage capacity of 530kg, or a 700kg basket option. It is mounted on a five-axle Scania chassis, with a total weight of 48tonnes.
“Nevertheless, the heavyweight has been optimised for practical conditions and can be securely stabilised in areas where there is very little space," said Stephan Kulawik, Palfinger Platforms managing director. "Thanks to a fifth axle, which acts as a lift axle and is automatically lifted during stabilisation, the P900 requires a much smaller jack lift on the incline.”
Distance between the stabilisers is 7,255mm length x 7,200mm width. To facilitate differing international licensing laws, a foldable under-ride guard is integrated into the vehicle body.
“However, we did not just focus on the technical parameters, but also looked at additional benefits in daily use,” continued Kulawik. “The P900 is fitted with a sufficiently dimensioned driver’s sleeper cab. This has the economic advantage that hotel costs can be saved and is also beneficial from a security perspective as it means that the truck access platform is never left unsupervised.”
