VERSALIFT pushes the technological limits with the new 100% electric lift vehicle
VERSALIFT proudly announce the development of an exciting 100% electric lift with a VTL 120 mounted on the electric Renault Master, which has demonstrated impressive results on vital criteria. The vehicle will have an impressive range of 100 km. even loaded to its maximum capacity (mixed driving). Furthermore, the unit has a payload of 185 kg. including driver and passenger.
The innovative mindset at VERSALIFT is fundamental to achieve such impressive results. Furthermore, considerations regarding the social implications of an eco-friendly alternative were paramount, thus providing lift vehicles for the future.
The new 100% electric lift vehicle mounted with a VTL 120 mounted on the Renault Master, is for the first time revealed live at BAUMA 2019 in Munich. The full electric vehicle will also be available with the lift models VTL-135-FZ and VDTL-140.
The 100% electric lift is powered by a Lithium-ion battery and is available with either the small (2,5 kWh) or the big (5 kWh) Power-Pack. Battery tests exceeded customer request of 10 working cycles with an impressive 20-30 cycles on the small battery and 40-60 cycles on the larger battery, as a single working cycle lasts merely 75-95 seconds. Extended battery lifetime is essential to increase effectivity, as work is continued without delays. Furthermore, one minute of lift usage consumes 1% power capacity, as the control system and flash consume 10% power capacity, there’s 90% capacity available for working with the lift. Therefore, the maximum lift working time amounts to 90 minutes for the large Power-Pack.
The 100% electric lift vehicle is easy to charge, and the large 5 kWh Power-Pack is charged 80% within merely 3,5 hours (with a 230 V socket). Other critical features include an info display for the Power- Pack and is situated on the pedestal. Moreover, a display is installed at the bucket to warn about low battery levels.
The range of 100 km. for the Renault Master provides transport flexibility during work. There are multiple benefits associated with employing the 100% electric lift vehicle, such as a noticeably reduction in disturbance of the public. Moreover, companies can work in the city during off-peak hours, without public interference and disturbance. Moreover, the possibility of working in closed spaces is feasible due to the emission-free engine, thus extending the possibilities of aerial lifts.
The VERSALIFT 120 mounted on the Renault Master has a working height of 12 meters, a bucketload of 120kg and many other notable features. The VTL-135-FZ has a working height of 13,5 m and the VDTL-140 has a working height of 14 m.
VERSALIFT is the leading manufacturer in the world of aerial lifts and produces more than 4000 lifts each year, this number hastily increases each year, due to the high demand for VERSALIFT products.
From January 1, 2019, the Brubakken Group focuses more on business areas and therefore creates two new Divisions; Lifts and Forklifts.
Brubakken are still one company. The new organization enable us to focus properly on each area and we will be able to make quicker and better decisions that benefit our customers and suppliers.
Peter Claesson is responsible for the Operation in Sweden. Peter replaces Göran Janko who has worked as Sales Manager in the business of Lifts for many years. Göran will work with sales and act as mentor until the summer. Furthermore, Göran will be present as a resource in the future and contribute with his solid experience from the lift industry
The Lift Division in Brubakken Group, led by Alf Runar Frydenlund, will cooperate across borders between Sweden, Norway and Estonia with common functions such as purchasing and business development.
We see this as a positive step in development of Brubakken, says Bernt Ausland CEO/CFO Brubakken Group.

TIME International is set to introduce a brand new lightweight series of Versalift vehicle-mounted platforms at the Intermat exhibition in Paris on 23 – 28 April.
The new series labelled “VTL” (short for Versalift Telescopic Light) merges the superior shaped boom design of the Versalift VT series with the low weight of the existing Versalift ETL series. The result of this fusion is a brand new, lightweight telescopic platform series for light commercial vans, chassis and pickups available with a standard class B driving licence.
Perfection in performance
The new Versalift VTL features ultra-high strength steel booms in a formed profile for exceptional rigidity providing platform operators with ultra-smooth and stiff working conditions in the bucket.
Compared with the existing lightweight Versalift ETL, the new all-steel turret of the VTL is both notably bigger and more rigid which in turn both increases the lengths of the booms and improves the overturning moment of the entire platform. These improvements are crucial factors resulting in a significant improvement in both working height and lateral outreach.
Structurally, the VTL is remarkably strong despite its low weight supporting a bucket capacity of up to 265 kg (although a 265 kg bucket capacity only is offered on vans and trucks with a GVW of at least 5 t for reasons of stability).
Compatible with existing Versalift installations
The Versalift VTL is compatible with existing Versalift ETL and ETM vehicle installations from the roof and downwards as it uses many of the same mounting components. Due to the high degree of compatibility, the VTL is already available in a range of sizes and configurations for several popular commercial vans, chassis and pickups including the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Renault Master, Ford Transit, Iveco Daily and Ford Ranger.
Clean, lightweight design
The new Versalift VTL is made to stay on the road. It is designed and manufactured in Europe and all booms are given a thorough powder coating in full compliance with the C3 ISO standard to withstand the often harsh changing seasons in Europe.
Both the booms and the turret feature a clean design with no exposed components or plastic covers for low life-cycle costs and easy maintenance.
Despite all the innovations, the new Versalift VTL series does not compromise the crucial leftover payload as it actually weighs slightly less than a similar Versalift ETL installation and significantly less than a similar Versalift ETM installation.

The truck, with it’s electric motor is very quiet. Great emphasis has been placed on the driver’s seat, all the information is on a touch screen, which made it possible to lower the instrument panel, which in turn provides better visibility from the cab. The screen can also easily view the company’s business program and the driver has an overview of their tasks.
Driver ergonomics are ensured by adjustable levers that are adapted to the driver, adjustable seat and the first truck in the world that has Merlinum electrically adjustable pedals that allow the ankle for a comfortable angle.
There are many opportunities for storage in the new truck. All cabinets have LED lighs as standard. There is also light in all the cabinets and the cab can be hydraulically tilted so as to facilitate the servicing of machine.
The truck is initially only available for the Swedish and Norwegian markets, but will later be introduced to the German.
