RETURN ON INVESTMENT ASSURED

The cost of ownership of a platform is a primary concern in every design decision we make. We understand that the purchase of a new platform is just the beginning.

Through our innovative design, we’ve engineered in factors that save you money over the lifetime of the platform:

  • We only use high quality components
  • E-Drive, our self-charging hybrid electric system, saves fuel and engine service costs
  • Weight savings in platform design translates into high fuel efficiency
  • Plug-and-play components reduce the need for maintenance

OPERATOR FEEDBACK

Unnecessary call-outs to recoverable situations are a nuisance for everyone. That’s why we’ve ensured that the most common causes of interrupted operation are clearly signalled to the operator. These can often be resolved without the need for specialist help, saving time and money all round.

WEIGHT SAVINGS

Aldercote platforms are generally the lightest in their class. For commercial vehicles, weight is the most important driver of fuel efficiency; 100kg weight reduction will mean about 2% reduction in fuel burn.

MINIMAL MAINTENANCE

We use chromed stainless pins and self-lubricating polymer bushes on all our boom pivots. These are maintenance free for the lifetime of your machine.

The slew rings on our van-mounted platforms are inside the vehicle. They are therefore protected from the elements and easy to inspect and grease.
