JCB has developed its own range of three acess platfroms for use with its Hi-Viz telehandler range.

JCB has developed a range of three man baskets for use with its Hi-Viz range of telehandlers. "The demand for an access solution has been growing in recent years," said group engineering director Mick Mohan.

Fitted to a 535-125 JCB telehandler, the 400 kg capacity platforms offer a 14.1 m working height, or 15.6 m when mounted on a 535-140.

Compliance with the EN280 standard for man baskets is a key feature of the three new models, and safety features include a single, unique ignition key to operate both the machine and basket, interlocks for the stabilisers and boom, and hose burst protection valves. For example, the telehandler can only be used in platform mode when the stabilisers are down, the hand brake is on, the machine is in neutral and the rear axle stabiliser is on.

The three baskets in the range comprise a simple fixed platform, and extendable platform and an extendable, slewing version, which can rotate 90° in either direction from its central position. JCB says the 400 kg load can be distributed in any way across any of the platforms.
