Safety working at heights has been an issue over the last few years. Achieving a large lift capacity for tools and equipment whilst keeping personnel safe can be challenging especially on sloping or rough terrain. Whilst EWPs have lifting capacities up to 400 Kg they dont operate so well on rough terrain, Scissor Lifts can offer more capacity but also stuggle on some terrains.
This is where the MT-X1440A and 1840A come into their own with true rough terrain capability and a 4.0 tonne capacity. These models are equipped with Outriggers further enhancing stability.And at 14 and 18 metre lift heights they will access most tasks needed on site. Manitou offer factory high capacity basket solutions which will suit the majority of applications but in this case extreme duty was required.
The LiftRite customer required additional working space within the basket, very high lifting capacity, extreme duty construction and a unique configuration with a gap through the centre of a basket.
LiftRite’s solution on this occasion was a custom fabricated solution:
1300 mm x 1900 mm internal basket with a rated capacity of 2 persons and equipment 1000 Kg SWL. Equipped with a chequer plate floor, extreme duty hinges, latches and harness anchor points plus fully integrates with the Manitou systems.
The second basket has a massive working space of 1900 mm x 2000 mm and has the same capacity and construction as the smaller unit.
These baskets have been fully engineered for their working environment, OEM load charts, head software and have been design registered.
