Full-hydraulic Aerial Platform Control System for Severe-duty Applications
Elliott Equipment Co. has developed a full-hydraulic upper platform control package for its HiReach aerial work platform product line. The full-hydraulic platform controls are designed to be spark and electronics free for harsh work environments.
The full-hydraulic control system was developed with Elliott distributor, Mirk Inc., and Aggregate Resources Inc, a drilling and blasting company. Aggregate Resources purchased an H50F HiReach with a 55-ft working height and an ANFO hose in an oversized cable carrier on the boom to allow workers to deliver ammonium nitrate fuel oil (ANFO) explosives from within the work platform. The full hydraulic control console eliminates many components that can be damaged from coming in contact with ANFO or harsh conditions, reducing downtime and costly repairs.
The controls are fully proportional, intuitive and accessible for easy service and maintenance. As a solution based equipment manufacturer, Elliott Equipment Co. is suited to serve the needs of end-users that require features not available elsewhere in the aerial work platform and crane manufacturing industry.
