Ampliroll Product Spotlight: City Adds Aerial Device to Hook Loader; Saving the Cost of a Second Chassis
The city of New Providence, New Jersey needed a 50-foot working-height aerial device. But, usage would be only part-time. And, like many municipalities, the city of 12,000 people had to watch every expense.
When city managers discussed the challenge with truck equipment dealer Tony Sanchez LTD of Ledgewood, New Jersey, sales representative Gary Windt had an idea: Mount the new UTEM SkyTel Bucket Lift on one of the four truck chassis that New Providence had in its fleet for 26,000-pound Ampliroll Hook Lift Systems.
The “changeable body concept” proved to be a win-win-win solution. The city was able to mount the aerial device with the same security provided on a dedicated chassis. All certifications for stability and dielectric safety were achieved, without exception.
The truck readily changed back to its main role as an Ampliroll Hook Loader when the aerial device was not needed.
And, to round out the three winning benefits, the taxpayers of New Providence eliminated the cost of a new truck chassis by using multiple bodies on one chassis.
Ask your Ampliroll Dealer how you can save money with the “changeable body concept.”
