Iveco combines with Australian EWP manufacturer to produce a Daily-cherry picker combo

 

Elevating work platform (EWP) firm Nifty-Lift and truck manufacturer Iveco say they have created the tallest cherry picker commercially available in Australia, mounted on a Daily chassis.

According to the Nifty-Lift, the vehicle-mounted EWP uses a Ruthmann Steiger TB270, which provides 27m of working height, 14.8m of side reach and has a basket capacity of 230kg.

"Drawing on the model range of our German partner Ruthmann, we developed a truck-EWP combination in response to a clear gap identified in the Australian market, that being a distinct lack of super tall EWPs available on an Australian car licence," general manager at Nifty-Lift Kevin Power says.

"A number of competitor models were reviewed, though none of them had the payload and wheelbase we were looking for."

Power says the Iveco Daily 45C cab chassis fitted the requirements for standard road registration.

"At 4495kg GVM it had the ideal GVM, low tare weight and 34100mm wheelbase – from an engineering perspective the perfect fit for the EWP we've added onto its back," he says.

"The unit is suitable for contractors, signage installers and the tree trimming industry, amongst others," he says.

"Being on a car licence will also allow hire companies to open up their customer base for a self-drive or 'dry hire' as it's known in the hire industry."

The cherry picker vehicle is hauled by the 45C’s 3-litre turbo diesel engine, offering 125kW of power and 430Nm of torque, and controlled by a six-speed manual transmission.
