The innovative TeleCrawler13 aerial platform

Jointly organized by Access International and IPAF, the IAPAs celebrate the powered access industry excellence. Just like the Hinowa TeleCrawler13 lithium powered tracked telescopic aerial platform, a machine capable of reaching a working height of 13 m and a horizontal outreach of 6.4 m. The TeleCrawler13 platform stands out for:
  • compactness
  • reduced stabilization area
  • the “full electric” tracked undercarriage with electric traction motors that allows the translation to be performed completely electrically, without the use of hydraulic oils.
All this together with other features that underline the innovative and unique character of this aerial platform such as the automatic telescopic boom extension when going up/down and the “Go Home” and “Go Back” functions.

The TeleCrawler13 aerial platform is the first tracked aerial platform on the market on which has been implemented the technology with a permanent magnet drive motor which guarantees a higher performance compared to traditional electric motors. The high performance is also guaranteed by the IP67 protection factor of the electric traction motors, allowing the machine to work even on muddy and particularly dusty ground.
Hinowa continues to innovate and the TeleCrawler13 aerial platform is the result of its very latest investments in this area, aimed at achieving greater versatility in the use of vehicles and   to guarantee its customers an ever greater versatility of use of their vehicles and increasingly environmentally-friendly aerial platforms.
