Platform Capacity for the TL Series
Platform capacity is an important parameter that any company should look into in their bucket trucks. This is the rated load capacity consisting of the weight of personnel and all items carried on or in the platform including the liner. This means that the platform capacity is based on an empty platform. Any supply or manpower added to a platform must be deducted from the stated platform capacity.
For example, the weight of loads for the platform such as occupants, liners, tools, tool trays, and others could be deducted from the platform capacity to get the maximum load. A platform capacity of 600 lbs with a platform liner of 50 lbs has a remaining capacity of 550 lbs which is available for occupants, tools, materials, and others. The Terex TL37 to TL45 bucket trucks have a platform capacity of 400 lbs while the TL50 to TL60 have a maximum platform capacity of 600 lbs.
