• High quality parts used
  • Diagnostic feedback at control stations
  • Maintenance-free bushes
  • Automotive-style wiring for platform: increases reliability
  • Plug and play components
  • Remote diagnostics as standard
  • Friendly, expert support, if required


Our platforms are engineered to maximise their performance and reduce your downtime. To do this, we:

  • Use automotive-style wiring harnesses to ensure that cables are well protected at all points and components are easy to replace
  • Use only the highest quality components
  • Double-up safety critical areas to ensure that a failure won’t put operators in danger


Our Remote Diagnostics service comes as standard with every Aldercote platform since 2018. This allows us to quickly understand the cause of breakdowns and often resolve theme remotely. Even when we can’t fix an issue, our service team are already fully briefed before they arrive, so come prepared to get you up and running again as quickly as possible.


Due to the clever robust design of our platforms, most components are plug and play. This means some parts, like the bushes and chromed stainless steel articulation pins, are completely maintenance-free. The only points on our platforms that require regular maintenance are the stabilisers and the slew ring. These are all easily accessible, eliminating the need to work at height for maintenance.
