Truck-mounted aerial work platforms (boom trucks) are often used on assignments in high-density areas (e.g. inner-cities, parks, etc.). Passersby often complain about the noise and exhaust emissions from running engines, which are normally used to power the work platform. The new ECOLINE hybrid drive models – with 16 m and 18 m working heights – now offer quiet, CO2-free and emission-free operation.
