Teupen Introduces New Product Design April, 2016

The leader in height access solutions unveils new modular basket
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 15, 2016) Teupen, the world's leading manufacturer of compact track lifts, introduces its latest modular basket design for select articulating and straight boom lift models in its LEO Series.

The new concept, which is currently offered as a standard feature on Teupen's TL63A articulated compact lift and straight boom models (TL76S, TL92SJ and TL110SJ), offers the machine owner greater flexibility and cost savings by providing component replacement rather than entire basket repair or replacement.

Teupen's latest modular basket is constructed from solid, high-density aluminum profiles that are not welded in any place, which makes it both lightweight and highly durable. In case of damage, machine owners only need to replace the damaged section or components. Each piece is connected with self-locking, high-strength hardware.
