Aldercote launches lightweight van-mounted boom lifts 10 March 2016

Aldercote’s van-mounted boom lifts are now available to order from UK distributor Access Platform Sales (APS), which is currently conducting a nationwide road show.

Designed and built in Britain, Aldercote’s van mounts are claimed to set new standards in terms of operator safety, vehicle payload, platform safe working load and boom reach.

They were designed for highways electrical contractors and local authorities, for street lighting and similar working at height applications.

Aldercote cites design features as including: the pedestal, which is located behind the bulkhead, providing more space for tools; and the tripod approach, claimed to make it safer and easier for operators and service technicians to move around the pedestal.

The combination of a lightweight boom and pedestal also increases truck payload – 12m and 13m booms mounted on 3.5-tonne Ford Transit vans offer up to 300kg of carrying capacity, even after accounting for two occupants and a full tank of fuel.
