Double 4 Test Vehicle fitted with a FASSIi F50

Date Posted: 21-02-2014

Double 4 Ltd the Tail Lift, Step & Shutter Engineers from Willesden NorthLondon, have invested in a new specially developed vehicle to carry out the weight testing of tail lifts. Double 4 needed a payload of at least 3750kg combined with a crane capable of lifting a 1500kg test weight over the rear of the vehicle.

Double 4 looked at many options without success and it was only by using a FASSI F50A.21 fitted to a Mitsubishi Fuso, supplied by Mercedes-Benz dealer Rygor Commercials that they were able to meet with their requirement. By using FASSI’s crane installation programme which calculates the payload, weight distribution and vehicle stability we were able to give Double 4 the confidence to go ahead with the project.

Kevin Wilkes Double 4’s workshop manager said ‘For such a lightweight crane I can’t believe how easily it lifts the weight, this vehicle certainly enhances our commitment of quality service to our customers giving excellent safe maneuverability, eliminating manual handling, and is also Euro 4 compliant’.
