Altec’s AT46P Takes EWP Safety To New Heights

by editor arbor age

Altec is excited to announce the release of the AT46P.

The AT46P, the newest Elevated Work Platform (EWP) in Altec’s product line, features increased unit capacities as well as advanced safety features. The unit was designed specifically for the Australian market with the help of leading utility and vegetation management companies across the country.

The AT46P is an articulating telescopic EWP with a working height of 15.4 metres and a side reach of 9.3 metres.

The 762 x 1,219mm bucket has a 300kg capacity which allows two operators to work efficiently with a fully packed apron.

Also featured on the AT46P are two brand new safety systems. Altec’s Load Management System monitors the bucket’s load in real-time and prevents the operator from being in an increasingly unstable state once maximum capacity is reached. To avoid extending into traffic or pedestrian walkways, Altec’s Virtual Wall System increases versatility by enabling crews to complete jobs without repositioning the unit.

“We took a customer-centric approach when designing the AT46P and visited with several customers in Australia to understand their unique work practices, needs and expectations,” says Chitra Ranganathan, Altec’s Australia Market Development Manager. “The key features seen on the AT46P are a direct translation of what we heard: larger bucket, increased bucket capacity, a load management system that aids operator safety, and a virtual wall system for efficient unit operation.”

The AT46P is available with the following features and options:
• Altec ISO-Grip® Single Hand Control
