Tracked Leguan 165
Efficient with Good Outreach
Leguan 165 is an access platform with unbeatable features, designed for heavy duty professional and rental use. In the design of the Leguan 165 special attention has been paid to durability, strength and user friendliness.
High platform capacity over whole working area, chassis with wheels or with crawler tracks and strong booms make Leguan 165 the right choice for professionals.
Easy to transport
Thanks to its low own weight the Leguan 165 is easy to transport on a trailer. A towing vehicle with 2.800 kg towing capacity is sufficient.
There is also a transportation trailer availabe, tailor made for the Leguans. This special trailer allows operation of the Leguan also when it is on the trailer – like a trailed mounted lift.
Leguan on wheels or with a crawler track chassis
Leguan Lifts is the only manufacturer to offer its access platforms both with a chassis on wheels and with a crawler track chassis. This is the case also with Leguan 165: it is available either with hydraulic four wheel drive or with a robust crawler track chassis.
The biggest advantage of a four wheel drive chassis is versatility. Thanks to the suspension effect of the rubber tyres it is much more comfortable to drive an access platform with tyres on even and solid surfaces. All-terrain capabilities are also sufficient for almost all circumstances because of the hydraulic four wheel drive.
The most important advantage of a crawler track chassis is a bigger contact surface to the ground. The bigger contact surface improves traction especially on soft and uneven terrains (e.g. in the forest or on snow).
Kubota diesel engine and 230 V propelling
Leguan 165 is the only access platform in its class to offer a two cylinder 14 hp liquid cooled diesel engine. This reliable and durable Kubota engine is made for heavy duty professional use. In addition to reliability, the high torque and pleasant noise level of the engine are features valued by the customers.
Leguan 165 is also equipped with 230 V electric propelling. All functions of the machine (drive, outriggers and booms) can be operated with the electric motor when the Leguan is connected to 230 V mains current.
The electric propelling option is very useful when working indoors or when a very low operating noise level is required. It is also often practical to drive the Leguan to the work site using the combustion engine, then connect it to a 230 V outlet and operate the booms with electric propelling. This way the operation is very silent and fuel costs remain as low as possible.
230 kg platform capacity
Leguan 165 offers features that are not normally seen in this class of compact access platforms. One of the major trump cards is the strong and solid boom construction which allows 230 kg platform capacity over the whole working area. This means two persons can safely operate the machine, or alternatively one person can take a lot of tools and equipment on the platform with him.
As Leguan 165 can be operated with maximum platform capacity over the whole lifting area, the construction of the machine is considerably more straight forward. This increases user friendliness also, because the operator doesn’t have to worry about different platform capacities with different outreaches of the booms.
Load control system is naturally standard equipment on the Leguan 165. This feature makes operation safe and easy: if max. platform capacity is exceeded, there is an alarm that warns the operator and boom movements will stop.
