Key to the vehicles is the Palfinger PK 78002-SH high performance loader cranes, rated at 78 tonne-metre load moment capacity, mouonted on 32-tonne DAF chassis.

Working with key suppliers Lancashire DAF, Fosters Commercials and Palfinger, A-Plant has purchased a number of specially modified vehicles.

A-Plant director of accommodation Ian Needham said: “We believe we are one of the only national accommodation hirers to be able to double stack such large accommodation units from our vehicles, meaning we can now offer a more cost and time efficient delivery service.

“Despite the impressive height they reach when double stacked, safety is not compromised. The vehicles incorporate Palfinger’s high performance stability control (HPSC), which enables safe working within tight spaces, plus they also prevent post-oscillation in the event of rapid braking or load changes.”
