Designed for easy operation and low maintenance, our optimised platform designs use high quality materials so are lighter than other brands, without compromising on strength or safety.

  • Ideal choice for installation and maintenance of telecommunications and fibre optic cables
  • More payload than other options available for tools and equipment.
  • No noise from an idling engine, thanks to E-Drive, our self-charging hybrid system, so can operate in Clean Air Zones without difficulty.
