Swiss sales and rental company Airnace has taken delivery of one of the newly upgraded versions of the 31ft Nagano Z11Auj big platform telescopic crawler boom lift.
A key feature of the upgraded model is its ability to work safely and with full capacity and outreach on slopes of up to five degrees. In terms of general performance, it offers a working height of up to 11.4 metres with a maximum unrestricted capacity of 600kg. The overall platform length is just over three metres, with a width of just over two metres. The three section telescopic boom provides a maximum working outreach of 6.5 metres, which is available at working heights of up to almost nine metres. The machine can also drive at full height, but kicks into an extra slow creep speed above a seven metre platform height. The overall weight is 9,150kg.
Airnace specialises in the rental of a full range of aerial work platforms, spider cranes, pick & carry and crawler cranes, along with telehandlers, vacuum lifters and construction lifts. It also works with Indupro to provide aluminium scaffold tower rentals. The company was founded in Evionnaz - in the Valais region - due south of Montreux - by Francis Richard in 1999 to rent out aerial work platforms. Still based in Evionnaz, it now also operates from five branch locations all around Lac Léman/ Lake Geneva - in Sion, Montreux, Nyon, Lausanne and Fribourg.
