Facelift 34th Anniversary

Ascendant 17m Self Drive Truck mounted platform for hire

With 17m of working height in a vehicle under 3.5 tonnes, the Ascendant gives you great access while still being drivable on a standard, non-HGV licence. The controls are easy to master, the cage is large enough to work in comfortably, and it has an outreach of 12m at full cage capacity of 230kg - that's enough for two workers and tools. This boom has the capabilities of much bigger machines, all at a size we can offer as self drive hire.

Additional Information

Well suited to self drive jobs which need a decent amount of height or outreach, the Ascendant 17m packs a lot of platform in to a small package. It has lockable storage containers for 200kg of equipment. If you need slightly less height but much more secure storage, check out its smaller brother, the Ascendant 15.
