Its articulated/telescopic booms allow access to work in the tightest areas. The VST 5000 is fitted with auxiliary outriggers for stability in steeper areas.
In spite of its apparent size, the VST 5000 is remarkably versatile. Its boom configuration allows long reach underneath service wires, up driveways and into other seemingly difficult places.
The model comes with a two-person bucket, allowing operators to work as teams.
Its compliance with AS1418.10 (Int) – 2004 to 66kV means safety for operators close to high and low voltage powerlines. Its “wet” rating ability enables it to be deployed in rainy weather or storm emergencies.
