Designed and manufactured in-house, the work platform further increases the models productivity and versatility. A third party access platform will remain available for the 540-140 and 540-170 models.
Three platform sizes are available for the HiViz machines. These include fixed platforms with a depth of 1.2 metres by 2.5 metres wide, an extendable platfrom also 1.2 metres deep, but with a length of 2.5 to five metres wide, while the third option adds platform rotation to the extending platform.
All three platforms offer a capacity of 400kg, an increase of 50kg on previous models. JCB says that the EN280 compliant base machine has stabiliser and boom interlocks.
Both of the HiViz models can be ordered platform-ready from the factory but without the work platform, allowing customers to add the platform at a later date as required.
The JCB-designed wireless-enabled remote control system provides accurate, precision control from the plaftform. A single key interlock facility ensures complete operator safety while working as an access platform.
