INTRODUCING THE B-LIFT 510 HIGH RANGE
Strong minimalist design combines with the latest generation technology to produce the B-Lift 510 HR. This aerial platform reaches a maximum working height of 50.5 m and is mounted on a three-axle 26-tonne vehicle which means it can be driven with a Class C driving license. The HR stands for High Range. This machine was the result of the largest engineering project launched a few years ago by the CTE Technical Dept. based in Bertinoro. Its aim was to create a range to satisfy the needs of three markets with different requirements – the European industrial market; the American market; and the fire-fighting market.
The B-Lift 510 HR offers excellent performance with a maximum outreach of over 34m and basket capacity of 450kg when the stabilisers are fully deployed. The compact design means that the vehicle is around 10m long.
The B-Lift 510 HR has a telescopic boom with four sections (boom and three extensions) which can extend simultaneously without any side swing. The extra-long main jib with double extension can swivel through 180°. The secondary jib can also swivel through 180°. Secondary jib movements are controlled by an automatic management system. The hydraulic and electrical power supplies are housed in a cable carrier inside the boom and jib for protection. All boom and jib movements can be activated simultaneously through proportional electro-hydraulic controls using ergonomic joysticks. The turret can slew through a full 570° on its ball bearing turntable while the gear motor has a negative hydraulic brake. The hydraulic rotating basket can turn 90° to the right or 90° to the right. The vehicle’s engine can be started and stopped from the basket or ground level.
Miss Belgium inspected the B-Lift 510 HR at Matexpo to confirm the successful combination of beauty, design and technological innovation. CTE’s Belgian dealer Real Verhuur showed a lot of interest in the B-Lift 510 HR at Matexpo.
