A FULLY warranted ‘cherry picker’ conversion for the Isuzu D-Max was on show at the CV Show (29 April).
Featuring a telescopic boom that enables a maximum working height of 13.2m, the conversion is the work of CPL.
The converted Isuzu D-Max with A314 telescopic boom comes with full Isuzu five year/125,000 mile warranty and can be operated from ground level.
“The conversion has been specially developed for the utility and arborist industries,” commented Simon Cope from CPL.
“All external tracking has been removed so that you can work within the tree canopy without fear of damaging the hoses.”
The maximum basket load is 225kg and the boom can be rotated 360 degrees. The weight of the converted D-Max mobile elevating working platform is 3.5 tonnes so there’s no need for an O licence.
CPL also produces conversions based on the Land Rover Defender and Toyota Hilux.
But the cherry picker wasn’t the only converted D-Max on display by Isuzu. There was also a converted fire tender.
