The P130 articulatedcherry picker conversion, is available on the ever popular Toyota Hilux chassis.
First introduced in 1968, this pickup is now in its seventh generation. Famed for its indestructibility by the BBC’s Top Gear back in 2010, the Hilux continues to go from strength to strength.
Available on 4 wheel drive, this articulated conversion is powered by a 2.4L Diesel engine. This develops around 146PS and 343Nm of torque. It features ABS, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Brake Assist (BA).
The Type Approved and Manufacturer Approved Toyota Hilux P130A access platform has been developed with a safe working load of 225Kg in the basket.
The Toyota Hilux rough terrain cherry picker deck based controls have been improved by relocating to the near side of the vehicle, this is to enable safer and easier kerb side operation. The unit has received a 3.5tn air suspension upgrade with onboard pressure gauges and an automatic self-inflating system. The Cherry Picker conversion is fully hydraulic, safer to operate and easier to use.
Designed and developed specifically for the Utility, Telecom and Arborist industries, the P130A Toyota cherry picker is a highly versatile machine. All external tracking has been removed so that you can work within the tree canopy without fear of damaging the hoses.
Optional extras that can be requested on the P130A access platform include; Rear beacons built into the body, full beacon pack which includes front, rear and vehicle cab, reverse camera, fully type approved tow bar, company livery and rear chevrons all installed at our factory by skilled technicians.

What makes the Toyota Hilux indestructible ?
Toyota will always prefer durability over comfort. They will underpower the engine. Everything is built to last. Did you notice that turning radius of a Toyota Hilux is pretty poor? By limitating the turning radius, they have eliminated a weakness point. Compare to a Land Rover, it is so much less comfortable but so much more reliable. There is nothing fancy, when you think, in a Hilux. They don’t even use self-supporting frame. Some people may see Hilux as boring compared to some other cars but this is clearly an assumed Toyota policy; everything in a Hilux is a safe, proven over time technology; everything is oversized or underpowered. In the end, Toyota, with the Hilux and Landcruiser, has built a well-deserved reputation of indestructibility (I would rather say durability).
