About Aldercote

Aldercote is owned by David and Paul Dillon and the company’s Engineering Director, Marc Paish. The Dillon family have a strong track record in the vehicle-mounted boom industry, having previously owned Priestman Powered Access. Marc’s truly innovative approach to design has created a range of van-mounted booms that offer new levels of performance surpassing any other manufacturer.

Unique British Design

The pedestal in all three ranges is located at the rear of the van and incorporates two independent rotating stabilisers. This unique, compact design creates greater load space inside the van and also increases payload. The innovative direct load transfer system transfers the platform load through the main column directly to the stabilisers, which reduces the strain on the vehicle’s chassis.

Health & Safety

All three series are designed to facilitate safe and efficient access to key hydraulic service, repair and emergency lowering componentry.

The leading edge Aldercote products are available in three ranges: Performance, Utility and Contractor.

Aldercote Performance Series

A revolution in van-mounted booms, the Aldercote Performance range delivers market-leading performance in key areas such as payload, outreach and lift capacity. With working heights ranging from 13m to 18.4m, the innovative boom design means that even the largest boom in this series can be installed on a 5.2t GVW Iveco van. Features include automatic outreach optimisation based on the load in the platform, SWL up to 250kg and the option of remote fault diagnosis and access control / monitoring via modem.

Aldercote Utility Series

Designed specifically for highways electrical contractors, the Aldercote Utility lifts are competitively priced for the street lighting market. Telescopic booms with a 110˚ fly boom (jib), they provide excellent outreach at low levels. The light weight boom design means the Utility range can provide up to 13m working height on a 3.5t GVW van with 300kg of payload capability. The innovative turret design substantially increases storage room in the van for tools and equipment. The 13m VZ130U is available on a 3.5t Ford Transit panel van and the 14m VZ140U on an Iveco Daily.

Aldercote Contractor Series

Designed as a market entry product, the Aldercote Contractor range combines robust hydraulic platform controls with simple, steel boom designs. These lifts deliver excellent outreach at the lower tier of the working envelope, while benefiting from all of the stowage and payload benefits provided by Aldercote’s unique turret and stabiliser design. 

The 12.5m V125 is available on a 3.5t Ford Transit panel van and the 14m V140 on an Iveco Daily.
