Following The Spiderlift Company’s recent appointment as the new UK dealer for the Dinolift range of trailer-mounted and self-propelled access platforms, it has now announced the arrival of the very first rough terrain 24 m reach machine.
The Dino 240RXT, which is powered by a Caterpillar 3003 diesel engine developing 17.5 kW (23.5 hp) @3600 rpm, weighs in at just 4250 kg – less than half that of most rival machines of similar reach.
This new Dino unit features both 4-wheel drive and 4-wheel steer systems, making it ideal for use where there are difficult ground conditions or tight areas to negotiate. For enhanced operational flexibility the machine’s steering system can also be set to crab steer or conventional 2-wheel mode.
Besides being able to cope well with uneven and wet areas, the 240RXT is also equipped with an automatic self-levelling system using four hydraulically operated outriggers. These outriggers not only enable the machine to be rapidly set-up for use but also help to reduce the overall weight of the machine by replacing the need for a heavy counterweight to provide machine stability during operation.
