Palfinger Italy appoints CPL for UK

UK-based CPL (Cumberland Platforms Ltd) has been appointed as UK dealer for Palfinger Platforms Italy. The range covers truck mounted lifts on 3.5 tonne chassis and the new Palfinger spider lifts.

The announcement was made today at the CPL head offices in Kettering, Northamptonshire, where it also unveiled two new platforms - the Isuzu P130A and the Isuzu D-Max tipper. CPL previously used Socage booms for its vehicle mounted lifts.

The first fruit of the new partnership is the CPL Isuzu P130A - a 13.1 metre working height, six metre outreach platform mounted on the Isuzu D-Max chassis - wit an overall length of 5.6 metres and 2.56 overall width. Its four A frame stabilisers have a 2.23 metre wide footprint when deployed, it has a platform capacity of 240kg - enough for two people and tools - and it has five degrees of off-road levelling.

Palfinger Platforms Italy supplies the superstructure, while CPL carries out all the mounting and installation work in-house at its facilities in Kettering. CPL also provides the product support of course.

“Compared to our previous similar-sized platform the P130A is stronger, smoother and is much more stable when in the basket,” said CPL managing director Paul Murphy. “It has a similar working height and outreach and the controls are identical, making it easier for operators.”

“We have moved the lower controls to just behind the cab on the passenger side which helps in an emergency situation. Lowering the platform is a one-man operation.”

One of the main differences of the new platform is that the boom is now located on the right hand side of the truck which is ideal for the UK market as it gives more access kerbside to enter the platform at deck level.

CPL says that last year it delivered 175 access platforms, most of them mounted on the Isuzu D-Max chassis. Other pick-up trucks can be used including the Hi-Lux or whatever the customer specifies.The P130A has national small series type approval.
