Custom Versalift on tracks for Electricity North West

Energy Company Electricity North West has taken delivery of a tailor-made aerial work platform (AWP) mounted on a tracked undercarriage from Versalift UK. The custom AWP has been designed by TIME International to match the tough demands of Electricity North West. The machine is capable of scaling extremely rough terrain to access electrical lines in the most inaccessible locations.

The AWP is an articulated, telescopic Versalift LAT-38-140-H with full hydraulic controls mounted on a Takeuchi TCR50 tracked undercarriage. The machine provides a very stable platform with extremely low ground bearing pressure making it capable of passing over wet terrain and scaling steep inclines. Equipped with 2 pairs of long travel A-frame outriggers, the AWP is capable of levelling the deck in the most uneven terrain. The AWP boasts a maximum working height of 13.8 metres, 6.4 metres of outreach and a maximum platform capacity of 230 kg.

Graham Davies of Electricity North West is delighted with his new purchase.

“The machine is capable of accessing the most difficult of locations allowing us to quickly respond to any maintenance issues we have in the network”.

TIME International launched the LAT (Light Articulated Telescopic) series at Vertikal Days in 2014 and the AWP is typically installed on 4x4 pickups such as the Toyota Hilux and the Isuzu D-Max.
