This type of aerial ladder must be installed on vehicles whose GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) is greater than 9,500 lbs (4,309 kg). Outriggers are generally not required. However, given the variety of configurations possible, outrigger requirements must be confirmed by means of stability tests performed on your bucket truck.
The same applies to the bucket’s load-carrying capacity (in other words, the maximum weight authorized to be carried in the bucket). Specifically, this telescoping ladder is rated to carry 350 lbs (159 kg); however, its actual load-carrying capacity depends on the carrier vehicle.
We encourage you to contact Robert Hydraulique to obtain more information on the restrictions and factors to be taken into account when installing RH telescoping aerial ladders so that you can meet the highest standards in quality and safety.
*** Always ensure that you are complying with all local regulations when installing bucket-equipped aerial ladders. Robert Hydraulique is not responsible for installations performed outside its production facilities
