These days the access problems crop up when doing classical glass and facade cleaning work. There are more and more complaints are pouring in from contractors in this regards. For example, water obstacles in front of the area are to be worked on, façade projections, bay windows, niches, narrow entrances and inner courtyards, or low load areas (over underground grarages, cellars, etc). The use of truck-mounted access platforms is not possible for these applications; the use of a pole/lance is usually too time consuming and therefore uneconomical, or unpractical.
The crawler mounted access platform LEO 23 GT, was specially conceived to overcome such problems in cleaning/maintenance. The compact construction of the machine makes applications possible which would be otherwise difficult to overcome for example door widths under 1m, or where there is little room to manoevre. Various outrigging positions are possible with the optional automatic self-levelling system. Another highlight is the articulated boom enabling the operator to reach up and over almost any obstacle.
Further, the outreach of 11,20m, even with 200kgs basket capacity is another important feature of the LEO 23 GT. With a combination of a special aluminiumalley and other high perfomance materials, the machine weighs only 3.000kgs, thereby bringing only low ground pressure on floors. Lawns and other sensitive ground outside are no problem, as well as marble, mosaic, carpets and other valuable surface indoors. Main power is either Kubota Diesel Z-602, or electricity mains. The machine is 0,98m wide, so can travel through most standard single doors.
The LEO 23 GT is already in use worldwide for glass and facade cleaning and maintenance for a wide spectrum of other applications.
