Aerial platforms with and without outriggers: what are the differences?
Why do some vehicle-mounted aerial work platforms have outriggers and others do not? The presence or absence of an outrigger is a feature that is relevant for the safety of your operations at height and for other road users. Outriggers are mechanical devices that increase the stabilisation of the vehicle in order to improve the performance of a platform, such as the working outreach and/or the load carried in the basket. Here are some explanations that will help you understand the importance of equipping your vehicle with outriggers or not.
