What are vehicle mounted platforms?
Truck mounts, often called vehicle mounted cherry pickers, are access platforms that are installed on a truck, lorry, or van chassis that has been specifically adapted with outriggers to ensure stability and performance.
They are the most common type of platform seen out and about by the public and are often used by local authorities and utility companies to maintain and install general roadside infrastructure such as street lighting, telecoms, and other general applications.
These types of MEWPs (mobile elevating work platforms) are cherry pickers that have been installed with stabilisers or feet which are lowered and then pressed to the ground to override the vehicle’s road suspension. This means that the vehicle is no longer mobile and has formed a strong base from which work can be completed.
Common truck mounted applications
Vehicle mounted access platforms are popular in many industries and are often used as a quick and easy solution for general applications such as cleaning contractors, tree surgeons, fitting signage or installing lighting. This means they are suitable for a variety of working at height applications in a range of industries such as building construction and maintenance, telecommunications, the energy industry, and road maintenance.
Vehicle mounted cherry picker benefits
When a safe working platform is required for use in a variety of locations, a vehicle mounted access platform provides the perfect solution for businesses. They provide a cost-effective method for carrying out work on many job sites, meaning multiple tasks can be completed in one day in various locations. They are also very quick to set up and are suitable for immediate use without hassle, meaning they are extremely efficient.
Additionally, truck mounts have a small footprint and can be set up in busy, urban areas without causing too much disruption to the local area. Even with the outriggers which are used for additional safety and stability, they are still flexible enough to reach a lot of places.
The telescopic boom design of the arm also enables operators to reach hard to access locations and benefit from the impressive outreach ability. Plus, as the platform is vehicle mounted, many are often four-wheel-drive vehicles which means they are extremely hardy and suitable for traversing rough terrain and handling challenging off-road conditions.
