Collé Rental & Sales, with depots in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium, adds the Palfinger P900 Top Class to its extensive rental and sales stock. This makes Collé one of the first companies to offer this machine. With a vertical range of 90 meters, the P900 is suitable for montage and maintenance of wind-turbines, chemical installations, radio masts, high buildings, church towers and container cranes. Collé offers Palfinger’s complete assortment in access platforms and also provides a variety of solutions for vertical ranges up to 103 meters.
Designed by and for customers
After the introduction of the WT1000 with a vertical range of 103 meters, the demand for an access platform with a vertical range between 70 and 100 meters increased rapidly. Palfinger let its customers actively participate in the process of developing the P900. The result is an access platform qualified for everyday use, which offers an absolute surplus for the customer. The outrigger pads are attached to the stabilizers and the machine automatically calculates the optimal working range. The P900 is designed with a concealed diesel tank to prevent fuel-theft. In addition, sufficient working space on the chassis has been created; even a bicycle can be stored safely on the machine.
The P900 has a reach of 32,3 meters and a lift capacity of 530 kilograms (optional up to 700 kilograms). The jib is able to rotate to a 180 degrees , combined with the 2 x 90 degrees working basket, which makes it quick and easy to reach any location at height. A unique feature to this machine is that it can also reach locations up to 8 meters below surface level. The working platform has been built on a 5-axis undercarriage, of which the 5th axis can be lifted. The total weight is below 48 tonne, which makes the P900 fit for use in several countries. The P900 has been optimized for daily use and can safely be stabilized in compact spaces because of the 7,26 x 7,20m outrigger pad. The machine has a headway of 3,96 meters and this light running platform vehicle can easily be used on any kind of terrain.
During its introduction at the Bauma in Munich, the P900 was received enthusiastically. ‘With a vertical range of 90 meters, even with a basket load of 700kg, there’s no competitor to whom we can look up to’ says Stephan Kulawik of Palfinger Platforms GmbH, who is very satisfied with the new ‘crown jewel’.
The P900 will be added to the innovative Re-rent concept of Collé Rental & Sales. Within this concept Collé offers several machines, among others access platforms with a vertical range of 90 meters, with neutral colors to other rental companies throughout Europe. The machine’s suitability to everyday use and the 90 meter vertical range make the P900 a very attractive access platform to various parties.
