Access platform with a manual extension platform

With this aerial work platform, work can be carried out at lifting heights of up to 3.20 m. It is used, for example, to effortlessly maintain or repair crane systems in halls. The load capacity of 200 kg means that the necessary tools can be lifted along with the employee.

Cost factor

As you can see in the photos, neither the undercarriage nor the extension are electrically powered. There is a simple reason for this. The aerial work platform is not in continuous use. 
It is only used when crane systems require maintenance or when repair work needs to be done. The electric drives would be too expensive for this application cycle. Therefore, both the undercarriage and the extension can be operated manually.


The undercarriage allows the aerial work platform to be moved around for use in different places. The two rear wheels have a parking brake to ensure a firm footing when the aerial work platform is raised. The two front wheels are fixed by adjustable supports that can be lowered. 
The base frame has a ladder so that the employee can easily get onto the more than one metre aerial work platform. The platform door is self-closing. It is electrically queried to ensure that the door is actually closed when the aerial work platform starts to move up. It is operated electrically via a control panel on the platform. However, as already mentioned, the extension platform can only be extended manually. It can be locked in any position to achieve the desired length. This allows the employee to work safely on components that are difficult to reach.

Load monitoring and tilting moment

The operator often does not know how heavy the entire load with tools really is. A possible overload is measured to prevent the aerial work platform from being overloaded. If the load on the platform is too heavy, a horn sounds and the signal lamp lights up. The working platform cannot be raised when it is overloaded. 
Load monitoring is particularly important because of the extension platform. If the weight on the extended extension platform is too high, the centre of gravity is off-centre. This could cause the working platform to tip over. To prevent this kind of situation, the tilting moment is also monitored. If the load torque on the extension platform is too high, a warning signal sounds upon which the aerial work platform can only be lowered.
