XXL roadway protection – Efficient and safe work with the WT 610
Drammen Liftutleie, one of Norway’s biggest lessors for access platforms, asked Palfinger Norge for an access platform that would enable efficient work on mountain slopes and cliffs. This stemmed from a request from their customer Gjerden Fjellsikring to hire this type of platform for an extended period to provide adequate protection for Norway’s roads. After some deliberation, the answer was clear: It had to be a WT 610.
The extreme range of the machine was the clinching factor here – not as a standard model but individually adapted to the customer’s requirements and needs. Being ideally suited to this purpose, the WT 610 went on its way to our partner Danilift in Denmark.
The results were fantastic: Together with our PALFINGER engineers and designers, Danilift got down to work and developed a phenomenal WT 610 that measures up to all challenges and enables efficient and safe work in all situations.
In addition to a hugely powerful high-pressure compressor mounted on the platform, the special equipment also includes various protective covers to prevent the accumulation of dirt in exposed places as well as special reinforcement of the swivel bearing arm.
However, the main highlight of the machine is the modified workman basket: In addition to a robust roof that serves to protect against rocks and boulders, the basket is equipped with a grid floor to prevent the build-up of debris in the working area. In conventional applications, the workman basket can be dismantled and replaced with a standard basket at any time. Consequently, there are no restrictions of any kind for the lessor in the rental process.
By now the WT 610 has more than proven itself in numerous operations. High, steep and hard-to-reach slopes and cliffs that are often right next to narrow roads in Norway can now be surveyed extremely precisely with our machine. Secured by the special basket, the hugely powerful high-pressure compressor enables specialist staff to effortlessly drill deep holes into the massive steep slopes. These holes serve to secure the dangerous areas by means of steel nets anchored in the rock. This minimises the danger from falling rocks.
Gjerden Fjellsikring is completely satisfied with the work and happy to have received a machine that fits their very specific requirements. Mountain safety and maintenance are big issues in Scandinavian countries in particular and demand for suitable working equipment is extremely high. We are delighted to have the right platform in our range here in the form of the WT 610.
