Take the weight out of servicing with Big TED

Big TED is a larger version of the original TED and shares many of the same features and benefits.

Big TED was primarily designed with increased lift capacity in mind. It comfortably handles weights above the safe working limit of the original TED, up to 3,000kgs, yet still maintains a low profile and maneuverability. Operated by a joystick activated remote control, Big TED can achieve even greater precision during its movement. The power system comprises of a rechargeable battery system allowing runs times of up to 2 hours continuous operation. With a powerful drive system, providing enough torque to carry the heaviest of loads around the workshop and up reasonable slopes, the Big TED is extremely responsive and user friendly.
