Time launches 50th anniversary models
By Euan Youdale16 March 2015
Time International is launching a series of Versalift platforms to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the company.
The special anniversary models, available for the European market, are van mounted platforms in the Versalift Light and Medium range with working heights between 13 and 14 intended for street light maintenance.
The models are condensed versions of existing models with a lightweight subframe system in high strength steel, A-frame outriggers and electro-hydraulic IPC controls with two joysticks supporting two simultaneous movements.
The range is available mounted on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Ford Transit van and boasts a payload of up to 500 kg on the 3.5 tonne mounts. Platform capacities of 200 and 230 kg are available for the 3.5 and 5.0 tonne GVW mounts. The Light range models feature a 90° articulating jib arm while the Medium range models have 110 or 180° of articulation.
The anniversary models were unveiled at a sales meeting at the Time International headquarters in Farsø, Denmark, this month, attended by the sales team of German and Austrian AWP partner Ruthmann. Time International is the global export division of US-based Time Manufacturing Company.
Time and Ruthmann have been cooperating since 2011 selling their complimentary product lines in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
“With the anniversary models, we hope to appeal to a new segment of European customers in need of a high quality basic van mounted AWP with unique performance,” said Per Torp, CEO of Time International.
