Dingli has launched the wide versions of its biggest scissor lift model, in the form of the JCPT3225DC and JCPT3225RT.
The new machines offer a working height of 32 metres and utilise the same scissor stack as the 86 and 99ft narrow – 1.4 metre wide JCPT3214DC slab electric models unveiled in January however, the heavy duty stack is mounted on a 2.5 metre wide chassis with four wheel direct electric drive on the DC model and Hydraulic wheel motors on the RT. Rough Terrain non marking tyres and four wheel steer are standard on both.

The other major differential between these models and the narrows is, of course, the wide deck – now 6.2 by 2.45 metres when retracted. A powered 2.1 metre roll out deck extension is available which extends the deck length to 8.3 metres. Platform capacity on both main deck and the extension is 1,000kg / four people
Drive at full height with 1,000kg is possible
Power comes from a choice of All Electric 80V/520Ah high capacity lithium battery pack, or a Deutz Stage V diesel. Drive at full height is possible on both models, while the levelling jacks feature a ‘one button levelling’ function.
Overall height when stowed is 4.13 metres, which can be reduced to 3.19 metres when lowered. Total weight is 23,400kg for the diesel/RT or 23,900kg for the DC model. The gradeability on the electric drive machine is 30 percent while the diesel RT is 40 percent.
The JCPT3225RT - diesel hydraulic drive version
Finally, slightly shorter 86ft platform height/28m working height versions are also available – the JCPT2825DC JCPT2825RT. Most of the performance characteristics remain the same, including the 2.1 metre deck extension, but overall stowed length is just under six metres, while they weigh in around four tonnes lighter.
The diesel JCPT3225RT has the same performance as the DC but is 500kg lighter with a little more gradeability
In terms of deliveries, the previously announced Narrow models are likely to arrive in Europe next month, while these new wider Rough Terrain machines - both diesel and electric drive - will probably not land in Europe until mid-summer.
The timing on these new machines looks almost ideal, given the surge in high cube warehouse construction in both Europe and the USA. The net result is likely to be an ongoing growth in the market for these high capacity heavy duty scissors.
