They are also much safer because of their flight pattern.
The combination of lower boom and telescopic upper boom allows an operator better access through the branch structure and or power lines.
Torsion bars fitted to the vehicle mean that outriggers are not required to stabilise the working platform on slopes up to five degrees – thus increasing the ability to operate without disrupting vehicle flow or needing additional traffic control measures.
Its compliance with AS/NZS 1418.10:2011 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.
