Access platform specialist Cumberland Platforms Ltd (CPL) showcased several vehicles at the CV Show.

They included the Type Approved and manufacturer-approved Isuzu P130A, which has been developed with a low centre of gravity to aid road holding and off-road capability. Key stats include a working height of 13.1m, working outreach of 6.0m, 360° boom rotation, and a basket capacity of 240kg. Fully hydraulic controls are fitted in the basket and on the deck.

Also on show was the Isuzu D-Max CPL Chipper Tipper. It provides a payload of up to 1,300kg, depending on the conversion, plus a load area of up to 3.0m3. The rear box measures 1,930×1,755x600mm. The vehicle comes with National Small Series Type Approval and full Isuzu warranty and breakdown cover, while conversions range from tippers to drop-sides. All come with a steel frame for robustness and are fully powder coated, and the tipper variants have a maximum tipper angle of 50°.

CPL used the CV Show to announce it has become the first certified converter of vehicle-mounted aerial platforms for Renault in the UK. The vehicle demonstrating the partnership was the Klubb K21N Trafic van mount. The product requires no outriggers and boasts a 9.2m working height, a 5.8m working outreach and a one-man basket. CPL says that due to the compact size of the Renault Trafic, it can be driven into difficult-to-access urban areas for a variety of maintenance projects, althoughthere is still plenty of room for tools and equipment within the rear of the van. This platform can also be operated with the vehicle engine turned off using Klubb’s Green Pack technology, which saves fuel and protects the environment. 

Next week, at the Vertikal Days 2018 event, CPL will unveil the Klubb K20 Nissan ENV200 van mount, a conversion that boasts zero emissions, no outriggers, a 10m working height and a 5m working outreach. The company will also exhibit the K20 mounted on a Renault Kangoo, which it says is the smallest van mount in the world.
