Squirrel 805 SD
10m reach 8m platform height
The 805 SQUIRREL has a 200kg safe working load making it the ideal machine for Industrial hire fleets, shed construction applications and high pruning because of its robust construction and many features.
The 80 5 SQUIRREL is similar to the 65 5 having the same size base but with an increased safe working load, the same superior stability, easily adjustable drive wheel track. The differences are that the rear king pin post is 0.3m higher, boom 1.1m longer and has additional ballast for the higher 200kg safe working load.
Two Man Cage (optional extra)
A Two Man Cage with hand controls is also available on 805 model SQUIRREL (shown above & left).With joystick drive & hand controls, this is ideal for hire fleets and industrial applications. The cage hydraulically rotates 45º left and 45º right. Controls are directly mounted to the valves allowing the operator to phase all movements. Floor has slots for safe drainage and vision below. Tool trays are incorporate into the top hand rail for safe easy work. Safe access is through the rear gate which opens inwards, and sprung closed with two separate latches. .
Drive Wheel Settings
The 80 5 SQUIRREL has the same quick adjustable drive wheel track as the 655 model. The wheels swing out to 3m outside for work and can easily swing in for transport. Safety switches prevent the boom raising above 4.5m if the wheels are not at 3m. The wide wheel base gives a very safe and smooth ride over rough terrain.
Drive Wheel Retraction
Adjusting the wheel track is very quick and foolproof, taking only several minutes. Operate the special jack provided to lift up one wheel, remove one locating pin and swing the wheel to the required width - refit the self aligning locating pin. Or use the optional extra Hydraulic Wheel Shift.
Planetary Drive Wheel Hubs
We have our own design very heavy duty 8:1 planetary reduction gearbox with an integrated powerful hydraulic motor and incorporate fail safe multi-disc wet brakes which eliminate creep and auto brakes smoothly when driving down a hill. Hubs are standard with quick disengage freewheeling. This is the most powerful efficient drive giving maximum torque to the drive wheels.
Powerful Hydraulic System
Hydraulics have the capacity to handle steep and adverse conditions. The system is protected by a very fine 10 micron suction filter. The steel braid hydraulic hoses are fitted with spring guards to ensure long life.
Hydraulic Three Speed
Three speed is a standard feature which operates independently from the variable engine rpm, enabling the operator to select a wide range of speeds for faster operation and traveling.
Fully Independent Caster wheels
Two independent large diametre caster wheel assemblies provide a very smooth ride over uneven terrain or street kerbs. As one wheel mounts a kerb the other stays at the original level. Effectively the height of the kerb is halved. This allows the operator to comfortably work safely and quickly. These wheels also greatly reduce the possibility of bogging because of the distance between the two. Standard on 80 5 model. Horizontal pivots has a large self lubricating replaceable bush.
