Mounted on a 16 t Mercedes-

fully raised. The hydraulic

elevator is stepless providing

an ‘up-and-over’ clearance of

up to 6.3 metres for safe and

efficient access over obstacles

or open traffic lanes.

The configuration for Albwerk

is fitted with an extended

cage with a capacity of 265

kg and 2 x 85° rotation. It

features a maximum outreach

of 16.2 metres (at 120 kg), and

Iveco Daily Euro 6 launches

Several Versalift access platforms are now available for the 3.5 t Iveco Daily. Due to a low vehicle weight

compared to other 3.5 vehicles, the Iveco Daily builds boast impressive leftover payload across the board.


Versalift ETL-32-125

A range of Versalift access

platforms are available for

the new Iveco Daily. The Euro

6 version of the Iveco Daily is

significantly lighter than other

3.5 t commercial vehicles used

for mounting resulting in a

solid boost to leftover payload

for options, equipment and

storage solutions.

The 24 metre VTX-240 and the

13 metre double telescopic

Ideally suited for inner city

jobs, the Versalift LT-23-90-

TB is now available for the

compact 2Fiat Doblo Workup

chassis with an impressive

length of less than 5 metres.

Setup is extremely quick, as

the unit requires no outriggers

for stability.

Despite the low 2.5 t GVW

rating, the 9 metre unit still

has plenty of leftover payload

for aluminium cabinets and a

detachable tow bar.

First 2 roadshows completed in France

TIME Versalift SAS, France now prepare for the next leg of the tour in Northern France in week 38.


#1 Southwest France (week 14)

What is a roadshow?

The first roadshow, hosted in

Southwest France in the early

days of April was a good start

to the roadshow calendar as

we visited several customers.

The Renault Maxity mounted

Versalift VTX-240 with its

unique dual boom design was

the clear center of attention

on most visits as several

customers expressed interest

in the unique applications

that is possible with the 3.5 t

“up and over” unit.

During a roadshow, we

visit customers on their

own turf with a caravan

of several Versalift access

platform vehicles. We

find the roadshow to

be a great supplement

to tradeshows and


#2 Northwest France (week 22)

For the second leg of the

roadshow in late May in

Northwest France, the weather

had improved considerably.

A highlight of the tour was

the stop at our local retailer

in Normandy, Normandie

Intervention, that included a

barbeque with local specialties.

The new addition to the

roadshow caravan, the Fiat

Doblo mounted 9 metre LT-23

got a lot of attention as did

the popular 14 metre ETL-38

on a Renault Master van with

the new patent pending 180°

cage rotator.

2017 Roadshow calendar
