The vls (Vertical Lift System) is an operator assistance system that makes work easier when lifting or lowering loads. This is because it semi-automatically extends the telescopic boom when lifting, and retracts it when lowering without the operator needing to control the telescopic function. This enables a smooth and quick manner of work.
The almost vertical lifting and lowering movement makes a Weidemann telehandler with vls very stable because the load does not move into the overload range. The fluid operation, prevention of a reduced lowering speed on safety grounds, and easier machine operation all increase the machine’s handling capacity. Experienced operators can work even faster and safer with vls. Inexperienced operators are given valuable support in lifting and load work.
