Hydraulic System

Closed centre with 37 Litre accumulator or open centre hydraulic systems available - supplied with proportional hydraulic valving. Control of the system is via basket and observer remote control with interface card which monitors the valve and radio control offering the highest level of safety. All hydraulic cylinders are fitted with counterbalance or load holding valves. As standard the system is provided with DC pump backup in case of hydraulic system failure. Highest level of filtration system is provided featuring 10-micron absolute filtration and incorporates pressure filter, return line filter and filler breather elements. All filters are electronically monitored and alarm systems are provided.


EWPs can be mounted on a wide range of trucks to suit the customer’s requirements. These include 4 x 2, 4 x 6 and 6 x 6. Customers can choose from a wide range of locker systems and different types of mounting such as flexible fish plates etc. The subframe is provided with four vertical jacklegs making it possible to raise the wheels clear of the ground when being operated. Because the wheels are clear of the ground, the EWP can be setup at any angle and does not rely on the tyres to provide braking

Platform Unit General

Telescopic with fly jib articulated type with single two man basket levelled by positive parallelogram rod linkage and closed circuit hydraulic system giving maximum operating height of 18 metres. It is capable of continuous 360° rotation in either direction.


Standard machines are powered from gearbox PTO.

Telescopic Booms

Fabricated from folded galvanized plate producing light but strong sections with wide bearing pivots giving long life, maximum corrosion protection and rigid operation. All booms are coated with fibreglass to give LV insulation rating.

Fly Boom

Constructed from a combination of steel and fibreglass. All steel sections are hot dip galvanized before being finished with fibreglass insert. The entire fly boom is machined on all external surfaces as well as the bores after all fibreglassing work is completed. The fly boom design incorporates patented insulation systems which enable the machines to be rated up to 132kV precipitation.


Rotates on heavy-duty slew ring. Slew is by hydraulic motor driven through epicyclic gearbox which incorporates brake and counterbalance valve. Hydraulic and electric rotary couplings are included to provide 360° continuous rotation in both directions. The rigidity of design of booms and braking mechanism prevent the machine from pushing away from the job when operators apply force to drill holes in walls or swinging on spanners. The lower boom insert is built into the turret assembly. This insert has a rating of 33kV and can be rated for precipitation.


Redmond Gary Australia is the only manufacturer in the world who can offer patented technology to give insulation rating of LV, 33kV and 132kV in accordance with AS1418.10:2011 for dry, wet and precipitation rating.
