Highway Care | Supplying first height adjustable Mini Light Arrow!
Working closely with Tipmaster, Highway Care, have developed their first vertical lift, electronically operated, Mini Light Arrow (MLA). The MLA supplied to Tipmaster was designed to meet customer specifications of a bulkhead mounted MLA, allowing for a tail lift to be incorporated into the traffic management vehicle design.
Sales Manager, Nick Stubbington explains both the requirements and the challenges of the build:
“We were approached by one of our customers about building a traffic management vehicle that not only had a light arrow board, but also a tail lift. This meant that the arrow board needed to be a front mount, but it would be blocked by all the kit. We immediately turned to Highway Care, and they worked closely with us to develop the raise & lower light arrow board that we subsequently fitted.”
This custom build included light bar, work lights and a wander control lead.
“A very neat and sturdy piece of kit, that is easy to fit, and has gone down exceptionally well with our end user”
Nick Stubbington, Tipmaster Ltd
The new design allows the MLA to be raised and lowered via an electro-hydraulic system and stowed behind the bulkhead when not in operation; minimising aerodynamic drag and reducing fuel consumption. The adjustable MLA is operated from an in-cab control panel, reducing the need for access and improving the efficiency of deployment. Using roller wheel technology to raise/lower the system in conjunction with durable LED lamps, the height adjustable MLA offers an excellent product lifespan with minimal maintenance requirements to customers.
