Aries Rail recently completed this Isuzu FVR 4×2 hi-rail EWP truck. Built to comply with the latest Australian Standards including AS7502:2016 and AS1418:2011 the vehicle is able to travel with the boom deployed on a combined 1:24.5 gradient and 160mm cant whilst still passing a twist test. This ability makes it a game changer for the road-rail vehicle industry which, until now has been mostly filled with poorly engineered non-compliant EWP trucks at worst, and at best, EWP trucks that cannot travel with the boom deployed.
The EWP has a basket capacity of 225kg making it suitable for the majority of tasks in an OLE maintenance environment with operator crush protection, integrated E-Stops and fail-safe brakes providing optimum safety.
The front Aries Hyrail equipment is an all-new design, retracting inside the original Isuzu bumper which, has been moved forward by less than 200mm from the original position. This greatly enhances on-road safety, improves pedestrian safety and makes the vehicle easy to road licence anywhere in Australia.
