PRESS RELEASE: Wilson Access Truck Mount In Action At Reading FC

The largest truck mount in the Wilson Access fleet was signed up for Reading FC’s Madejski Stadium to help with the installation of a new state-of-the art video screen.

The 57m Palfinger P570 was hired by the management team at Reading FC to help installers to dismantle 65 individual screens that made up the existing screen and to replace it with 35 larger screens that comprise the new high definition screen.

The maximum working height of 57m and 41m horizontal outreach of the Wilson Access truck mount gave the installation team easy access to erect the new video screen, which is positioned high up above the seating areas in the 24,161 capacity stadium. To prevent any damage to the football ground’s turf, the 26 tonne truck mount was positioned on a trackway system laid out on the pitch’s surface.

The Palfinger P570 has an x-jib feature that enables the platform to go up and over buildings so that an operator can work on a rear fascia of a building whilst the vehicle is parked at the front.
