By Leila Steed12 October 2021
Aerial platform provider UP Group has taken delivery of the 2,000th Palfinger Light NX truckmount.
The Swiss company, which employs over 100 people and has 13 branches across the country, specialises in the sale and rental of access platforms, passenger hoists and goods elevators.
The 2000th machine to roll off the production line was handed over to the rental company at Palfinger’s headquarters in Lengau, Austria.
Markus Weber, product manager at UP Group, said, “Our customers love the Light NX access platforms. The material, hydraulics and electrics complement each other perfectly. The great advantage of these access platforms is their user friendliness.”
According to Palfinger, the “anniversary platform” is the 184th in the series to be purchased by UP Group.
The model features a “robust telescopic system made of anodized aluminium”, automatic stabilisers and a slewing range of 185°.
The Light NX model is also equipped with a 300kg capacity basket and, designed for easy use, enables operators to carry out four machine movements at once from the control panel.
Described as being “in a league of their own”, Palfinger has been manufacturing its Light NX access platforms for 12 years.
Christian Busch, area sales manager at Palfinger, said, “I am particularly pleased that we are today able to hand over the 2,000th model to the UP Group.”
“Our Swiss partners expect the very highest quality standards – and they have the biggest fleet of Light NX class models. That speaks for itself.”
