Palfinger is preparing to introduce its P 333 all-terrain aerial platform—the world’s largest, the company says—with a working height of 337 feet.
The equipment was developed in response to customers’ needs for the highest possible working height in assembly and maintenance work on wind turbines, chemical plants, antennas, high-rise buildings, church steeples, and other tall structures and objects, said the Austria-based manufacturer.
Features and Specs
The P 333 is designed as a telescopic access platform with a five-section lower boom and three-section upper boom. It is also equipped with an agile fly-boom.
Telescopic stabilizers guarantee maximum stability, Palfinger says, and a heavy-duty personnel basket can accommodate loads up to 1,322 pounds. The hydraulically extendable telescopic basket carries loads up to 1,168 pounds.
The P 333 is modeled on Palfinger's existing WT 1000 machine made in Europe and mounted on an all-terrain crane carrier.
The equipment will make its North American debut at ConExpo 2011, to be held March 22-26 in Las Vegas.
Palfinger will also be showing platforms made by utility lift company Equipment Technology LLC (ETI), of Oklahoma. Palfinger acquired an 80% stake in ETI in March.
