CPL, the UK access platform specialist, have released the new Isuzu D-Max Access Platform into the UK market.

CPL are the first to release the access platform mounted on the all new Isuzu D-Max. Isuzu awarded CPL with Platinum customer status in 2019 and CPL were the first approved converters for the vehicle manufacturers.

As the market leader for the Pick up mounted platform, CPL have ensured we are the first to design and build the popular platform on the new Isuzu D-Max. We are also the first to be awarded full small series type approval on the conversion with the 3.5t suspension upgrade and all terrain tyres*.

The final design sees mainly aesthetical changes to an already proven design along with improved boom docking and frontal support and in cab controls. The boom itself is the same leading design that was mounted on the previous D-Max. This features a 13.1m Working height and a 6.2m Working Outreach. The Safe Working Load remains at the forefront of the market with a whopping 240kgs, and during operation the knuckle remains firmly within the confines of the vehicle envelope.
Even with the new chassis design from Isuzu, the unit keeps its class leading 24 degree departure angle, 5 degrees of stability and 7tn gross train weight along with all of the optional extras.  All of these combined make the CPL Dmax P130 the best selling and most loved 4×4 cherry picker in the UK.

The Isuzu D-Max itself retains all of the existing qualities from the old model D-Max, plus it’s setting new standards in safety by adding even more features, including a high level of Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS).

Standard on all models is Cruise control, traffic sign recognition, forward collision warning, manual and intelligent speed limiter, autonomous emergency braking and lane departure warning and prevention system. Further added are the Automatic headlights & High beam assist and the new Dmax utility also keeps the Hill Start and Hill Descent control system.

The CPL platform mounted on a 4×4 pick up is especially popular within a number of sectors. These include: Utilities, Telecoms and Arborists.

CPL will launch the first look video of the new platform on Tuesday 6th April at 9am UK time on their YouTube Channel.
