CPL upgrades pick up mount
CPL, the UK based subsidiary of Klubb, has mounted its 13.1 metre Palfinger P130A superstructure on the brand new Isuzu D-Max 4x4 pick up truck chassis.
As with its predecessor, it offers up to 6.2 metres of outreach and a 240kg platform capacity, while the riser ‘knuckle’ remains within the vehicle’s footprint at all times.
The new chassis maintains the 24 degree departure angle and other features of the old chassis, but includes aesthetic updates and improvements, along with improved boom stowage, front stabilisation, and cab controls, along with additional features and 'Advanced Driver Assist' systems.
Standard equipment includes cruise control, traffic sign recognition, forward collision warning, manual and intelligent speed limiter, autonomous emergency braking and lane departure warning and prevention system. It also includes automatic headlights with high beam assist while the new D-Max utility also keeps the hill start and hill descent control system.
CPL says that it is the first company to release a platform on new chassis, adding: “CPL has ensured we are the first to design and build the popular platform on the new Isuzu D-Max. We are also the first to be awarded full small series type approval on the conversion with the 3.5 tonne suspension upgrade and all terrain tyres."
