Access Hire Nationwide is growing its specialist vehicle mounted access fleet with the addition of 25 VTL135-F platforms mounted on the 3.5 tonne Iveco Daily 35S.

The VTL135-F incorporates a profiled boom structure manufactured from ultra-high strength steel that gives exceptional rigidity, providing users with smooth platform operation in the walk-in bucket.

When mounted onto the 3.5 tonne Iveco Daily 35S, the platforms have a working height of 13.5m, outreach of 8.4m and 200kg of spare payload after driver, passenger and fuel.

The VTL135-F’s are kitted out with a variety of features as standard including zero tail swing, load moment control (LMC), undermounted buckets and have LCD display to bucket controls providing additional information to the operator.

Following customer feedback, Versalift added the choice of mounting the VTL135-F onto an Iveco Daily 35S earlier this year. The platform can also be mounted on Ford Transit and Mercedes Sprinter vehicles.

‘It’s important as a manufacturer that our development programme delivers the very latest not only in platform design and technology, but in the choice of vehicle that we can offer to our customers,’ said Andy Bray, General Manager-Director at Versalift UK.

‘The strong working relationship we have with Access Hire has given them the confidence to continue their investment in the VTL and the added value benefits of this market leading product.’

A subsidiary of Kelling Group, Access Hire Nationwide specialise in the hire of vehicle mounted access platforms and other specialist vehicles to local authorities, as well as other clients.

Stephen Moore, CFO at Kelling Group, commented: ‘The platforms will be supplied to a number of our existing and new clients in the core infrastructure sectors of Power, Telecoms and Street Lighting.

‘Our investment in the Iveco VTL135s for this quarter is part of our ongoing annual investment plan to ensure we continue to provide the most modern, largest and youngest fleet in the market to our clients.’
