UK introduction of new Versalift VTL series at Vertikal Days

On May 16th and 17th at Vertikal Days, Versalift is introducing the recently unveiled lightweight VTL series of vehicle-mounted platforms to the British access platform market on stand 203/303.

The VTL (Versalift Telescopic Light) merges the superior shaped boom design of the Versalift VT series with the low weight of the existing Versalift ETL series. The result of this fusion is a brand new, lightweight telescopic platform series for light commercial vans, chassis and pickups available with a standard class B driving licence.

At Vertikal Days, Versalift exhibits two van-mounted VTL installations:

  • First up, a VTL-135-F mounted on a 3.5 t Ford Transit van with a working height of 13.7 metres and a variable, load dependant outreach of up to 8.4 metres using the load moment control system (LMC) with twin joysticks.
  • Also exhibited on the stand is a 14.6 metre VTL-145-F mounted on a 5.2 t Iveco Daily van with an impressive outreach of up to 9.2 metres using the same LMC system with twin joysticks. Both installations support up to 230 kg in the bucket, are fitted with bespoke storage racking, and feature plenty of leftover payload.

LAT with 500 kg leftover payload
Speaking of leftover payload, the full hydraulic pickup-mounted LAT-135-H is now available in a lighter version offering a class-leading leftover payload after driver, passenger and fuel of 500 kg when installed on the Isuzu D-max pickup.

In addition to these installations, several other access platforms are on display at the Versalift stand including a high voltage insulated platform on a tracked chassis, the 24.2 metre Versalift VTX-240 and a bespoke Versalift VDT-170-F on an Iveco Eurocargo chassis.
