Aerial ladder with ground access

Looking for an efficient telescopic insulated ladder to reach the highest peaks? Our RH38DGA has a "gooseneck" design and a three-section ladder that can be extended to 38 feet (11.58 m)! If your business needs access to the ground, this product is what you need.

What makes it unmatched on the market?

  • The basket has a side door, allowing you to climb in from the bumper or from the ground.
  • Its second section contains a lifting eye that allows you to raise up to 250 kg (550 lbs) (opt.) in any position and from any angle.
  • Thanks to its 3-section design, your unit is more stable and rigid when deployed, making it much easier to use. For more precision, ask about our two-speed option.
  • This product has a maximum amount of storage space, payload, and basket capacity in accordance with our HR standards.
  • These capacities vary depending on the vehicle.
  • To facilitate quick evacuation in any position, our electric unit can be mounted on different frames and is designed with a pivoting platform at the base of its ladder.
  • The insulated ladder allows working from the basket close to the power lines.

Competitive advantages!

Maximized interior space

Important note:

This type of aerial ladder must be installed on vehicles whose GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) is greater than 9,500 lbs (4,309 kg). Outriggers are generally not required. However, given the variety of configurations possible, outrigger requirements must be confirmed by means of stability tests performed on your bucket truck.

The same applies to the bucket’s load-carrying capacity (in other words, the maximum weight authorized to be carried in the bucket). Specifically, this telescoping ladder is rated to carry 350 lbs (159 kg); however, its actual load-carrying capacity depends on the carrier vehicle.

We encourage you to contact Robert Hydraulique to obtain more information on the restrictions and factors to be taken into account when installing RH telescoping aerial ladders so that you can meet the highest standards in quality and safety.

*** Always ensure that you are complying with all local regulations when installing bucket-equipped aerial ladders. Robert Hydraulique is not responsible for installations performed outside of its production facilities
