Centre-stage on the UpRight stand will be a new heavy duty scissor lift featuring a working deck that extends to 7 m in length.

The LX31 has a working height of 11.5 m and, with both deck extensions deployed, its 7 m long Supa-Deck gives a total working area of more than 12 sq m.

The machine has ample working space for four operatives, says UpRight. And with a maximum working platform load of 794 kg, the LX31 can carry plenty of tools and materials too.

The LX31 Supa-Deck is driveable at full elevation, and its four-wheel drive gives the machine a gradeability of up to 35 per cent.

Appearing alongside the LX31 is the European version of UpRight's 8 m working height SL20. This compact electric Sigma lift is already a big hit in the US and the European version differs only in being built to metric dimensions.

Access manufacturer UpRight is showing 10 powered machines, including a range of rough terrain booms and its 10 m working height SL26 Speed Level boom.

The self-levelling function is claimed by the firm to be unique in its ability to stabilise on slopes without outriggers.

The system is claimed to be capable of stabilising front to back and side to side on inclines up to four times steeper than comparable booms.
