New crane wagon joins the Northern Powergrid fleet

VLS has delivered a new MAN crane wagon to the Northern Powergrid fleet serving its Yorkshire Moors and Wolds electricity distribution network zone operating out of Scarborough.

VLS contract manager, Ken Harrison, said “This 6×2 26t wagon is very impressive and is fitted with a rear mounted Palfinger PK48002 c-boom crane. TH White are the Palfinger agent, and like the Unimog 4×4 crane wagons that arrived earlier this year, they not only mounted the sub-frame and crane to the truck chassis, they also built the whole vehicle body too.

“Our standard specification includes side-safety rails on all crane wagons, but on this particular wagon we have specified alloy drop-sides like the vehicle it replaced. It includes all other safety features such as carriageway protection and a reverse camera and familiarisation training was provided by Palfinger.”

VLS is highly experienced in developing advanced specialist vehicles for utility customers as well as supplying cars, vans, HGVs and plant and providing comprehensive leasing, fleet management and maintenance services. The company has a strong track record of project-managing the design, specification and custom-building of vehicles such as sludge tankers, high volume jetters, insulated aerial platforms, tracked pole carriers and crane wagons for example, as well as mobile community library and customer engagement vehicles.
