Hydraulic telescopic aerial working platforms are used for a wide variety of tasks. These include maintenance work on electricity pylons and wind power installations, live TV coverage of international football championships, repairs to mobile phone masts on towers and buildings, and even assistance with high-elevation fire service and rescue operations. The carrying vehicle provides mobility and also helps to stabilise the platform.

Mobility and stability for elevated operations.
Deployment of aerial platforms is particularly rapid and efficient if they can be transported to the scene on a truck – and that’s where the Actros comes into its own. Thanks to the structural strength and load-bearing capacity of the Actros chassis, platform operation is safe and stable. Power is provided by the 12-litre V6 engine, or by the 16-litre V8 diesel engine. The impressive torque is on tap at engine speeds as low as 1,080 rpm.
Achieving record-breaking heights.
The highest industrial lift ever permanently mounted on a truck, reaching heights of up to 90 meters, is fitted to an Actros chassis. By comparison, fire service ladders have a maximum extension of 50 meters.
