Mantis Access - part of UK and Irish Mantis Cranes - has mounted a 26 metre Comet 26/2/13HQ aerial work platform on a Morooka MST800VDL tracked all terrain carrier.
The machine was ordered by Scottish sales and rental company John M Paterson, which offers specialist equipment including tractor mounted loader cranes and work platforms. The lift utilises a dual sigma type riser, topped by a two section telescopic boom and articulated jib, with up to 13 metres of outreach at an up and over height of 11.5 metres and an unrestricted platform capacity of 250kg.
Features include 360 degree continuous slew, 180 degrees platform rotation and low pressure hydraulic controls. The Morooka MST800VDL diesel powered chassis features 595mm wide rubber tracks, has an overall width of 2.7 metres, an overall length of 7.5 metres and an overall height of 3.4 metres. It can travel at speeds of up to 12kph and once in position it sets the outriggers and is ready to work. Overall weight is 10.3 tonnes.
Mantis has mounted a range of Comet platforms on tracked chassis and develop a specialist true and utility market for the products.
