Ascendant A18-13TJ Overview 

This access platform showcases its impressive reach with a working height of 18 metres, made possible by a sturdy two-section steel telescopic boom. Augmenting this is a 2.4-metre-long jib, offering a generous 125-degree working arc. Thus, whether the task demands vertical altitude or horizontal outreach, the A18-13TJ is adept at catering to a variety of working conditions. 
The fully hydraulic controls make the A18-13TJ notably user-friendly and less susceptible to operational glitches compared to its electronically controlled counterparts. This hydraulic system is not only more reliable, but also simplifies the machine's operation, making it a suitable choice for a wide range of operators. 
Enhancing the versatility of the A18-13TJ are the four H-section stabilisers, complete with one-sided jacking facilities. This feature is especially valuable when working in confined areas, offering stability and safety without compromise. The platform itself, constructed from aluminium, accommodates a safe working load of 230 kilograms, making it an ideal choice for tasks like roofing work, where the load may be considerable. 
The Ascendant A18-13TJ stands as a testament to UK manufacturing excellence, offering a comprehensive solution for work at height on a compact Nissan Cabstar mount. Available for either self-drive or operated hire, this vehicle-mounted lift is a versatile asset in industries ranging from construction and maintenance to telecommunications and film production. In summary, the Ascendant A18-13TJ embodies a balance of reach, stability, and user-friendly operation, marking it as a valuable addition to any fleet.
