Elliott Develops Sign & Lighting Body Package for New M43 HiReach

Elliott’s popular M43 HiReach, unveiled at the International Sign Expo in 2011, is now available with a standardized aluminum line body built by Alum-Line and developed in partnership with Elliott’s dealers and sign and lighting industry customers. The toolbox body provides storage for lamps, tools, and supplies in a series of lockable boxes resting below the bed. Thanks to the minimized weight of the aluminum body, users can carry more on the job site than ever before.

The M43 HiReach is a telescopic aerial work platform with a 30x54” platform, 48’ of working height, and 36’ of side reach on a non-CDL 19,500 lb GVWR Ford or Dodge chassis. Designed for sign/lighting maintenance and light construction work, the M43 is purpose-built for light duty personnel lifting with a total unmounted weight of 8,400 lbs. Unlike many articulating devices, the M43 has zero tailswing and better side reach than competing models. The 500 lb capacity platform can carry two workers, and the optional jib can lift 500 lbs into the platform.

The Alum-Line body features a 12’4” aluminum tread plate bed covered with Elliott’s non-skid coating. The body is composed of one 26”x45”x98” saddle box behind the cab, two 48” wide underbody boxes, and two 28” wide underbody boxes behind the rear axle. The bed also includes smooth aluminum fender skirting and tie down rails on both sides of the bed. The body can be painted a wide variety of colors to suit each company’s specific branding.

Other popular features include strobe lights on the turret, LED lights in the body, and a power inverter in a toolbox to provide steady power to the 110 volt electrical outlets in the platform. The M43 HiReach with this custom body provides sign and lighting companies with a versatile solution that will provide an immediate return on investment.
