Versalift VST-9000-MHI Articulated / Telescopic Aerial Bucket Trucks with Optional Material Handling
94' 11" Working Height
56' 8" Horizontal Reach
700 lbs Bucket Capacity with Jib Installed (800 lbs without)
PLATFORM - The fiberglass platform is 24 in. x 48
in. x 42 in. (0.61 m x 1.22 m x 1.07 m) deep with an
inside and outside step for easy access. The
standard platform capacity is 800 lbs. (360 kg). With
the optional jib/winch installed, the platform capacity
is 700 lbs. (318 kg). A cushioned platform support is
PERSONNEL RESTRAINT SYSTEM - A safety belt
or harness and a lanyard are required and can be
supplied by Time Manufacturing Company at an
additional cost. Consult applicable work practices
and regulations to choose between a safety belt and
a harness. The anchor for the lanyard is attached to
INDIVIDUAL LOWER CONTROLS - Individual fullpressure
controls at the turret actuate all boom
functions. The lower control station is equipped with
a selector valve to override the upper controls and
serve as the emergency stop from lower controls.
SINGLE STICK UPPER CONTROL - The fullpressure
single stick upper control includes a safety
trigger to prevent inadvertent operation. The lift
movements correspond with control handle
movements. An emergency stop and a tool selector
control are located at the upper controls.
HYDRAULIC PLATFORM ROTATOR - A hydraulic
platform rotator, operated by a control lever, rotates
the platform 1800 from one side of the outer/inner
boom assembly, across the end-hung position, to the
other side of the outer/inner boom assembly.
HYDRAULIC PLATFORM LEVELING - A master
and slave cylinder arrangement automatically levels
the platform in all boom positions. This system also
provides hydraulic platform tilt to adjust platform level,
tilt the platform for clean out, or to ease the removal
of an injured operator. The platform tilt can be
activated from the upper and lower controls.
OUTER/INNER BOOM ASSEMBLY - The outer/inner
boom assembly includes an outer boom, telescopic
inner boom, extension system, and hose assemblies.
The outer boom consists of a 12 in. x 14 in. (305 mm
x 355 mm) steel section. The inner boom consists of
a 9-1/4 x 11-1/4 in. fiberglass section and a 10 x 12 steel section. The fiberglass section provides a 108 in. insulation gap. The inner boom can be easily removed and disassembled for service and inspection. The extension system consists of a hydraulic cylinder, two integral holding valves,
and a “cat-track” type hose carrier housed entirely within the boom assembly. The hoses routed through the outer/inner boom assembly are non-conductive and fully contained within the boom assembly. The outer/ inner boom assembly articulates from 250 +/-20 below horizontal to 750 +/-20 above horizontal. Actuated by a double acting cylinder, equipped with two integral holding valves; the outer/inner boom assembly is offset to one side to provide easy access to the platform. A boom
support cradle and a boom tie down strap are included.
LOWER BOOM WITH CHASSIS INSULATING
SYSTEM - Each end of a high strength fiberglass
insert (chassis insulating system) is installed over a
rectangular 12 in. x 14-in. (305mm x 355 mm) high
strength steel section. The steel and fiberglass
sections are bonded with pressure injected adhesive
to fill any voids. After the adhesive cures, 32 bolts
are installed to assure maximum strength. A
compensation link with a fiberglass section maintains
the 24-in. (0.61 m) insulation gap in all the boom
positions. The double acting cylinder, with an integral
holding valve, allows the lower boom to articulate from
horizontal to 880 above horizontal.
CYLINDERS - Both the upper and lower cylinders
are a threaded head-cap design. Both cylinders are
equipped with two integral holding valves to prevent
creep down and to lock the booms in position in case
of hose failure.
TURRET - The 5/8 in (16 mm) thick turret wings are
designed for strength and rigidity. The 1-1/2 in (38
mm) thick turret base plate is machined to provide a
flat surface to support the rotation bearing.
CONTINUOUS ROTATION - Unrestricted rotation is
accomplished by a hydraulically driven worm and spur
gear with a shear-ball rotation bearing. The critical
bolts holding the lift to the rotation bearing and the
rotation bearing to the pedestal are grade 8 hex head
capscrews. These critical bolts are torque seal
marked to provide a quick means of detecting any
turning of the bolt upon inspection.
LUBRICATION - Non-lube bearings are used at all
pivot points. Only the rotation bearing and rotation
bearing gear teeth require periodic lubrication.
PEDESTAL - The pedestal is rectangular with a
reinforced mounting plate. The top plate of the pedestal is 1-1/2 in. (38 mm) thick and machined flat
to support the rotation bearing.
HYDRAULIC OIL RESERVOIR - A 35 gallon (132 l)
hydraulic oil reservoir is built integral to the pedestal.
The reservoir includes an anti-splash baffle and sight
gauge for quick hydraulic fluid level checks, and a
return filter pressure gauge.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM - The open-center hydraulic
system operates at 3000 psi (205 bars) at 10 gpm
(38 lpm). A 10-micron return-line filter, mounted
above the hydraulic oil level and inside the pedestal,
can be easily changed without draining the reservoir.
A filter gauge with a color-coded range is used to
monitor the condition of the return line filter for
replacement. The 100 mesh (149 micron) suction
strainer in the reservoir can be removed for cleaning.
A gate valve, located below the reservoir, prevents
oil loss when the pump is serviced. A magnetic drain
plug attracts metal particles from the oil.
TWO-SPEED MANUAL THROTTLE CONTROL -
Changes the engine/pump speed to give the operator
a choice between slow and normal boom speeds,
and also at slow speed provides reduced flow to
operate hydraulic tools. The manual throttle control
is designed to operate only when the truck engine is
running and the master control is activated. An air
cylinder at the platform or a toggle switch at the turret
can be used to energize the manual throttle control.
PAINT - The complete unit is primed and painted before assembly. The standard color is white
HOSES AND FITTINGS - The hoses routed through
the booms are high pressure and non-conductive with
swaged hose end fittings. Nylon sleeves are installed
over hoses at points of movement. Reusable fittings
can be installed if a hose is damaged.
ENGINE START/STOP - The start/stop circuit has
been designed so the lift cannot be operated unless
the truck ignition switch is in the “RUN” position and
the master control is activated. This feature makes
it difficult for unauthorized individuals to operate the
lift when the truck is locked. An air cylinder at the
upper controls and a toggle switch at the pedestal
energize this system.
HYDRAULIC TOOL CIRCUIT AT THE PLATFORM - This system is designed for open center hydraulic
tools. The tool circuit provides approximately 6 gpm
at engine idle and 10 gpm with the throttle control
engaged. The tool pressure is 2000 psi (140 Bars).
