Aerial platform with articulated arm
Aerial platforms with articulated arms, also called articulated telescope aerial platforms, are a slightly different variant. The difference with the regular telescopic aerial platform is that the articulated arm aerial platform has more mast components. This allows more and different movements to be made, without having to move the chassis. The aerial platform with articulated arm thus has more uses and can reach even more places than a regular aerial platform, scissor work platform, or telescopic aerial platform. A disadvantage is that the work surface or container of the aerial platform with articulated arm tends to be smaller, and that the machine has to be transported on a trailer.
Functioning of the aerial platform with articulated arm
The aerial platform with articulated arm allows hard-to-reach places to be reached, without having to be directly underneath. They are also ideal when there are obstacles to overcome. This type of aerial platform is suitable for use outdoors and can even be used on rough terrain if they’re fitted with tracks. Normally, aerial platforms with articulated arms have a chassis on wheels, which houses the hydraulics. Because aerial platforms are fitted with a container, someone can be lifted to perform the work at height. Using the control panel, that person can move, stop, and lock the arm and container.
