Street Tree Pruning
Seeing the wood from the trees
The trusted way to tackle tricky terrain
Reliable on every surface and proven for safety, all Hydralada models are stability tested and designed to drive at full elevation on unprepared terrain and slopes up to 20 degrees. Easily climb up and over streetside kerbs and gutters.
Prune at heights on the run
The ability to drive the machine at full height, hands-free is just one of the features that makes a Hydralada so efficient. The operator can easily work on the move, significantly increasing productivity.
Easy to transport
Hydralada elevating work platforms are relatively lightweight and compact making them easy to transport around city streets – either towed behind a vehicle on their wheels or simply loaded onto a trailer or low bed truck.
Hands-free for pruning or chainsaw work
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 arborist’s hands free to work the tree.
Designed to thrive in the arborculture environment
With more than 45 years 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 means Hydralada machines will operate in harsh environments all 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
Increased traction and stability
Mud, sand and grass can throw extreme challenges at the operator. Hydralada’s Tandem 4WD makes working in all conditions a breeze.
Auxiliary Oil Outlets
Hydraulic pruning made easy
The safe and easy way to prune, hydraulic couplings in the Hydralada platform allows you to connect a hydraulic pole saw or pruner. Hydraulic limb loppers are available for pruning and cutting branches up to 50mm.
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.
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.
Heavy Duty EWP Tyres
Purpose-built with reduced tyre flex
These tyres are purpose-built for elevating work platforms and include a more rigid sidewall to protect the wheel rim. It reduces tyre flex which is an advantage when the machine is working at higher elevations.
Full Bonnet Guard
Protection from flying debris
Heavy-duty guard which mounts to the front of the machine and protects the fibreglass bonnets from damage. Perfect if the machine is being used for 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.
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.
