Ever wondered while craning your neck to read a sky scraping signage, about how it was put up? Or how the giant roller coaster you love to ride on was installed? Well, all this is made possible by the ultra modern, high-tech, versatile engineering equipment especially the truck mounted equipment. These wonderful machines make your engineering work look like a cake walk.

The Telescopic Aerial Platform

Whichever industry you belong to, these telescoping aerial platforms and crane trucks are an indispensable part of your work. These allow you to do more with just a single machine. Right from material handling to digging and basic crane and aerial work- the telescopic aerial platforms do the work of a fleet of trucks!

There is a piggyback cylinder arrangement giving a smooth, precision controlled ride. They are also custom made for specific solutions. Many new models too are being launched which can work in special environments like underground mining, high corrosion environments, difficult environments like salt mining etc. they have fully hydraulic platforms which are sparks and electronics free. This is especially useful in the harsh work environments like mining, oil etc. Other features like Plexiglas covers for controls, removable platform roof etc is also available to users who require it.

Applications of Aerial Work Platform

Being very versatile and flexible, these platforms get personnel and material where they need to be very quickly and minimal effort. Due to this they are ideal for industries and applications like outdoor signage, utilities, electrical contractors, amusement parks, concrete construction, movie industry, port authorities, large cities and municipalities, oil refineries, steel mills, paper mills you name it.

The Truck Mounted Crane

The truck mounted crane or boom truck is another versatile machine which has a high speed outrigger set-up, boom extension and retraction to its high pull winch. This mean machine requires low maintenance due to its layaway hoist and 10% fewer fittings than other trucks. It too has a wide range of applications in various industries. There are many models to suit various work ranging from a boom length of 39 inches to 105 inches. Newer models have more features like rear mounted booms; rotating or gravity hung aerial platforms for personnel etc.

Applications of the Crane Truck

It is versatile machinery used in many major industries like concrete foundation form setting, roofing, highway works, lumber industry, installing cellular towers, water well drilling, crane rentals, tree trimming, oil field servicing companies etc. Sales and servicing of these machines are through various distributors and there is structural warranty too.
