Farm Shed Building
A better way to build barns and implement sheds
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.
Hands up for the best foot control
The ability to drive the machine at full height, hands-free is just one of the features that makes this platform so efficient. Using manoeuvrability unique to Hydralada, the builder can lift, position, and secure purlins and cladding to farm sheds.
Hydralada elevating work platforms are manufactured to the guidelines of AS/NZS 1418-10 2011. Compliant for industrial work on commercial sites.
Work harder hands-free
With our 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 enables the builder to manoeuvre the machine into position while simultaneously working on the construction.
Designed to thrive in the building environment
With more than 45 years of manufacturing experience, you could say we know our stuff. Proven for safety and renowned for reliability, our heavy-duty construction and rigid chassis design means Hydralada machines can successfully operate in rugged environments and rough terrain.
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.
Hand Operated Controls
Stand firm (and flat) when it matters
In some building jobs, a flat, firm floor is imperative. The Tiller Lever Hand Control option provides the answer and can be included on all Hydralada machine models.
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.
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.
Four high torque drive motors power four wheels mounted on an oscillating beam. This increases traction and acts like suspension, delivering a smoother ride.
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.
Hand Deadman Control
Operational safety requirement
This means the machines drive controls are not operational until this hand control is activated. A requirement for machines being used in industrial applications.
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.
