Compact and maneuverable, this model consists of a vertical telescopic mast, electric travel motor and a perforated steel basket meeting all your industrial requirements. With a 350-degree turret rotation, it offers operator's greater flexibility and access with minimal repositioning. The compactness of the VJR 26 work platform allows operators to pass through most industrial doors accessing work heights up to 32' with an impressive reach of 10'4".
The VJR 26 vertical mast design ensures great stability thanks to its center of gravity located in the lower area of the chassis. The telescopic mast technology delivers a compact structure, which increases visibility of the machine and the work environment during operations by the operator in the basket. The controls in the Manitou VJR 26 are simple and intuitive for quick start. They are equipped with safety features including load and tilt sensors as well as an anti-entrapment system for additional safety.
Standard with a 24V battery, the VJR 26 offers enough autonomy for a complete day of work and ensures many years of service life. The lifting structure using telescopic booms reduces the maintenance thanks to the reduction of moving parts. The operator can easily access the battery and hydraulic components by unlocking the latches of the turret cover.
An added benefit to the VJR 26 is the ease and safety of transportation of the vertical mast platform. Two forks pockets are located on the platform to allow a forklift to load and transport the machine sideways. This allows loading of the machine top of a trailer faster and safer.
