More Information
TIME created the concept and introduced the design of the Versalift VST Series now copied by other aerial lift manufacturers. That same originality allows us to always be a step ahead of competitive machines with innovative features and proven reliability. The unique and customizable design of the Versalift VST Series ensures that you receive a quality- engineered product that meets your industry-specific needs. Each model can be further customized to include a variety of options that enhance the overall capabilities of the unit.

The Versalift VST-6000 is the only telescopic/articulated machine on the market that offers 65 feet of working height on a 108 inch CA chassis. This unique configuration gives you both the height to tackle almost any size pole, and the compactness that allows you to work in the tightest working areas.

Inspection time is reduced through the effective use of torque stripe on all critical fasteners. Operators may quickly perform a visual walk around inspection of the Versalift VST Series prior to use to determine if all bolts are securely fastened and the unit is safe for mechanical operation.

The Versalift VST Series is available with a removable jib & winch increasing its flexibility and allowing it to be used in a wide variety of applications. With the platform support mounted jib and 180º rotator, setup time decreases and productivity Versalift VST6000 Aerial Platformincreases as there is less need for accuracy when determining distance to the work site. Operators can more easily get the load to the work area. In addition, the platform support mounted jib is self-leveling which automatically levels the load as the boom is raised or lowered. The operator is able to focus more on load placement and less on load leveling.

Ensuring that dielectric integrity is maintained is a necessity. The Versalift VST Series maintains a minimum insulation gap of 38 inches with the fiberglass inner boom fully retracted. This allows a Category C, 46kV rating with the fiberglass inner boom in any position, including fully retracted. The VST-6000 is available with Category B, 69 kV ratings, increasing it’s flexibility and allowing it to be used in a wider variety of applications. You save money by having one machine capable of performing work that most often requires multiple and different types of units.

There is no mandatory rebuild on the Versalift VST Series because it is designed and built to last. Besides reducing lifecycle costs in pure dollars and cents, the Versalift VST Series also gives superior reliability and serviceability over time.
