Upgraded Versalift ETL and ETM series
The Versalift ETL and ETM series for vans and chassis are available in Euro 6 editions with stronger booms and a new, more advanced boom limit system for added outreach and cage capacities. For the ETL series, the max cage capacity increases to 230 kg while the max cage capacity for ETM models increases to 265 kg. Finally, the emergency descent procedure is now safer than ever on the ETL and ETM series as the hydraulic valves have been moved down from the turret to the pedestal for ground level operation. The upgraded ETL and ETM series support the heavier Euro 6 engine standard without drastically compromising the leftover payload – and for several models, the leftover payload even increases despite the increase in engine weight.
Versalift VTX-240 for Euro 6
The 24.2 metre Versalift VTX-240 is now available for the Euro 6 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis and now supports 220 kg (up from 200 kg) in the cage to better support two operators. The unit, originally unveiled at Bauma 2013, has been slimmed down to accommodate the increase in vehicle weight without compromising stability and safety. Despite the significant weight increase of the Euro 6 chassis, it still has leftover payload to support a 3.5 t GVW rating that is crucial in the selfdrive rental segment of Europe.
