The Versalift VT-66-LF is fitted on top of a 3 metre step less elevator that serves two purposes. It increases the available working height of the three stage telescopic VT-66-LF from 22.0 to 25.0 metres, but more importantly it allows the operator to work over open traffic lanes. With the elevator raised to its maximum height, the VT-66-LF E76 increases its ground clearance to an impressive 6 metres, and from this position it is capable of reaching its full maximum outreach of 17.0 metres.
