The Italian Army chooses Easy Lift
At the beginning of December Easy Lift delivered 20 tracked platforms, model R180 and one tracked platform model R130 to the Italian Army.
The R180s have been customised to best meet the Army’s needs for working at height. Compared to the standard version, structural changes included turret rotation of 360deg, the Scanreco wire control with a simplified interface display showing information on the use and safety parameters and an anti-crushing device, which consists of two radar units mounted under the basket.
The Army chose the diesel engine, but this too was a customisation, as an electronic Hatz engine was fitted.
The machines were also equipped with optional accessories such as the working light, the inclinometer and special military green paint.
The R130 however, is a standard machine with diesel engine and optional accessories such as wire control and self-levelling stabilisers, also painted in the military green.
Training courses will soon be organised for the Army operators who will use the machines and will need to be instructed on how to use them easily and safely.
Easy Lift is an official supplier of the intergovernmental military alliance NATO and of the MePA, the Italian Public Administration Electronic Marketplace, a virtual place for online purchases.
The recent supplies confirm the Italian Armed Forces (not only the Army but also the Navy) trust in Easy Lift and its tracked platforms. In fact, the first sale was two years ago, when one R130 was delivered to the Taranto Arsenal, while in May one RA26 tracked platform was delivered to the Naval Station Command in Augusta, Sicily.
