Dealer Skyking, part of the King Trailers group, will be taking the P480 on a tour of customers between the 10th and 21st November to show off its capability.  Although some orders have been placed from the UK already, this is the first unit in the country so far.

The P480 offers a working height of 48 metres and an outreach of 31.5 metres, with a gross weight of 18 tonnes on a two axle chassis.

The addition of an extra boom section – a hydraulically operated X-jib between the upper boom and the basket – gives the P480 a 240˚ movement radius and extra manoeuvrability, enabling it to get beneath underhangs, for example.
