Upright Re-launches Popular Boom Lift 17/11/2007
UpRight releases the popular AB46 boom lift. UpRight platforms has bought back the class-leading boom lift at Bauma, in order to meet the growing demand of the AB46 boom lift. The AB46 is a reliable and successful self-propelled articulated boom that has a working height of over 52ft and has an outreach lift of 24ft 6in. The articulated UpRight boom lift has a zero tail swing that makes it ideal for working in tight spaces and firmly places it in the mid-sized compact sector that makes it a versatile machine that works well on congested work sites or in tight small warehouse spaces. The articulated, telescopic boom configuration comes with a 140o degree, 5 ft jib which offers great up and over capabilities and has excellent maneuverability. The UpRight platforms jib allows operators to maneuver into hard to reach, high positions while offering a safe, and trusted work platform.
The well-known legendary lift speed has also been a factor in re-introducing the articulated UpRight work platform. UpRight already has received pre-order for over 100 AB46 machines with a full line production starting this year. Richard Tindale, Product and Business Development Manager for UpRight Powered Access said that not much has been done or altered with the UpRight platform and the company found that no adaptions or added innovative developments were needed. Richard Tindale says the well-proven machine has a huge global fan base and has already demonstrated in the level of pre-orders we have secured. The UpRight platform will be released in two models, the AB46E DC electric 2WD and the AB46RT diesel 4WD. The UpRight platform AB46 was discounted several years ago, when the machine was downsized. UpRight plan to bring back some new or revived machines over the next 18 months which will bring UpRight full range of self-propelled platforms back into production.
