Facelift Access Hire has confirmed delivery of its 20th, 17m truck mounted platform from British Manufacturer Ascendant Access.
The A17m, mounted on a 3.5 tonne chassis has been specifically designed for the UK market and can be driven on a normal car license.
Unique features include permanent one sided jacking allowing the machine to achieve full unrestricted outreach of 12.2m with a cage capacity of 230KG, whilst still maintaining a narrow working width of only 3.2m. The vehicle has built in storage lockers with a carrying capacity of 150KG unique to this type of machine, allowing the user to carry tools and equipment to the job with no need for a second vehicle.
The machines greatest feature is its simplicity. The design brief was to create something simple, easy to operate and maintain. The result is a machine with full hydraulic controls and no need for outreach limiters or complicated electronics.
