September 2, 2016 – Altec has released the AT MPS series, offering nine different aerial devices with articulating/telescopic models that provide a choice of personnel or material handling options. The aerial units can also be purchased with a steel platform for work requiring a non-insulating product.
The models can all be mounted on a 19,500 lb GVWR chassis and include the AT37/41/48 MPS, which offer working heights of 42 ft, 46 ft and 53 ft, respectively.
The series features the introduction of Altec’s solar-powered LED lighting system for illumination of the platform controls during nighttime operation.
There is also an optional 24-in. platform elevator and the series boasts the ability to place either a single man (24 x 30 in.) or two-man (24 x 48 in.) end-mounted platform on any of the models.
