Versalift will launch the 14.6 metre VTL-145-F Hybrid van mounted platform - the company’s first hybrid VTL platform - at Platformers’ Days in Hohenroda, Germany this week.
The company, based in the Ruthmann stand, will show the new VTL-145-F hybrid on a 3.5 tonne Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis. The aerial lift provides an outreach of up to 8.6 metres and a platform capacity of 230kg.
The standard chassis is powered by a diesel engine, while the platform is powered either by the vehicle’s engine via the PTO pump, or by 100 percent electric drive using an electric motor, a separate hydraulic pump and an on board lithium ion battery pack. Using the electric option, the platform is capable of operating with the vehicle’s engine turned off, and the battery pack is said to last for a full day shift
