In this class, Palfinger offers access platforms with and without a counter slewing system, depending on whether the customer wants more storage space or high manoeuvrability. The counter slewing system makes it possible to turn the platform within the vehicle's width (including mirrors), making it ideal for working while traffic is flowing.

This basket rotation facility allows the full basket width of 3.88 m to be utilised at the rear of buildings.
