VML 650 85 Scissor Lift

The TBD VML 650 85 scissor lift vehicle utilises a 5t chassis and has an 8.35m maximum platform height. The sliding, cantilevered work platform will accommodate 4 persons with tools (650kg max).


TBD Owen Holland design and manufacture a range of Truck Mounted Scissor Lift Platforms, specifically designed and equipped for the aviation industry and airport use which can be customised to meet customer requirements.

Smaller vehicles are highly manoeuvrable and ideal for general ramp maintenance activity whilst our larger higher platforms on heavier chassis provide increased capability which will allow comfortable access for example to the tail-cone of A380 and above the tail-cone of the A340.

The platform has an optional traverse of 1.5m in both directions making it extremely useful for inspections and maintenance activities. It can also be fitted with rear or side access gate to allow removal of larger items such as APUs by a standard forklift if required.

All platforms are fitted with fully compliant handrail systems and include anchorage points for work restraint lanyards.

The platform has a capacity in excess of 600kg, easily accommodating 4 persons plus tools or the weight of the APU in stand plus 2 operators at a height to accommodate all commercial aircraft.

Other options include sectional telescopic half height rails for enhanced access in confined areas where the aircraft provides part of the barrier and LED platform lighting.
