Up there where you need it
The trusted way to tackle tricky terrain
Reliable on every surface and proven for safety, all Hydralada models are designed to drive at full elevation on unprepared terrain and slopes of up to 20 degrees. Each machine is stability tested and has a safe working angle specified.
Driven from the platform
Fitted with standard foot controls, or hand tiller lever, Hydralada machines can easily be manoeuvred at all heights, without the need of outriggers for stability.
Small and nimble
Hydralada’s thoughtful, refined design makes them ideal to work in tightly confined areas, without compromising lift height for accessing both vertical and overhead structures.
Work harder hands-free
With Hydralada lifting platforms it’s all about the fancy footwork. Housed within the floor of the platform, a centre pedal operates the lift and the two outside pedals operate the respective drive wheels. It’s a quick and easy drive system that leaves the operators hands free to work.
Heavy-duty all round
With more than 45 years of manufacturing experience, you could say we know the lay of the land like the back of our hand. Proven for safety and renowned for reliability, our heavy-duty construction and rigid chassis design mean Hydralada machines will operate in harsh environments year-round.
High-performance from a twin-cylinder petrol engine
Let’s hear it for a smooth operator. The Hydralada’s high torque 19hp Twin Cylinder Kohler Engine is driven at relatively low RPM, ensuring a quiet, fume-free working environment in the avocado orchard.
Popular lifting platform options
Two Person Work Platform
Perfect if you need a hand
This is the ideal option for jobs where two people are required on the platform. Tiller Lever Hand Control is fitted with this option, and the foot-activated deadman switch meets all industry standards.
Platform Tool Box
Carry tools safely
Hydralada’s front and rear-mounted heavy-duty toolboxes are easily fitted to the platform. Effortlessly carry all the tools necessary for your job, keeping them close to hand – maximising efficiency and safety.
High ground speed
With the boom lowered, the operator can safely drive faster. Once the boom is elevated the Hydralada automatically switches to a slower ground speed. Dual speed is a sensible option for busy contractors.
Vehicle warning light
An orange beacon mounted on the rear of the machine which shines when the machine is operational. Ideal when the machine is operating in public spaces such as street tree pruning.
Hand Deadman Control
Operational safety is paramount
Machine drive controls are not operational until this hand control is activated. It is a requirement for elevating work platforms used in the industrial and construction industry.
Shift sideways while working
The operator can slew the platform 45 degrees left or right of the centre without moving the chassis of the machine on the ground. A lever located in the front of the platform activates a hydraulic ram that significantly increases the working envelope.
Hand Operated Controls
Maximum floor space
Where operators need to maximise their working space hand controls are the prefered option. A firm standing area on the floor makes for an efficient and stable platform at all times.
High-performance compact diesel engine
Kubota Diesel Model D722 is a vertical, water-cooled, 3 Cylinder, 4 Cycle IDI diesel engine with high torque capacity of 16.4 hp at 3600 RPM. Don’t mistake its compact size, this is one of the most hardworking, efficient running diesel engines on the market. The Kubota Z482 Model is a 2 cylinder option, 10.90 HP version also available.
