I acquired the new version: ALT400C.
The major differences with the old model: a new system of pins impossible to lose, and all tubes are black! It's great, they can land anywhere, they do not attract the eye. And for those wanting to hide, no problem if the fabric is not big enough. No more unwanted reflections.
Foot stable and strong, comes with the badge of the supervising office and a logbook checks. For those wondering what it is, it is a mandatory thing to do every year at least.
Excellent product, he often was reproduced for different brands, this is a can "reference" in this price range.
The foot is rather heavy (25kg) but it is evidence of good quality, the welds are performed quite well as the assembling.
The foot is stable, his handle is folded down, the safety devices are very well designed.
The foot is supposed to support 85kg but avoiding the climb to more than 3m it is possible to reach 100kg. That said, it is not recommended to do so, if something goes wrong you will be responsible.
To summarize, you can go there with my eyes closed, you will not be disappointed.
I bought 4 used with two older and two recent (March 2005).
Same as Mobiltech ALP4 which was also manufactured by ASD.
The oldest have winches and Goliath labeled all the features and safety rules. The locking fingers could stay unlocked position (convenient but less secure).
Good feet and solid practices to climb to 4 meters.
Load capacity 80 kg to a dead weight of 24 kg, a man wears easily.
Not very expensive.
For a height or a higher charge, it is almost double the price!
The wheelbase of 3 feet is quite large (on a circle of 1.68 m) and provides good stability.
Attention to removal: do not unlock the base of the foot under load if the approximate 3 feet abruptly.
My latest two feet (manufacturing in March 2005 or shortly before) had no name and no winches label. They ask me big problems:
1. Safety pins near a break from each other. 7 are already broken, there are no more than that because they will soon have a manufacturing defect.
The eight pins are to be replaced at 7 € each. The news is red.
2. When the handle is screwed FLYING play the big hit, although not very strong, it overrides the square tube and round tube through higher no longer flows.
Disassembly required for recovery not evident.
3. The little plastic tips toes are not riveted, and were all lost.
It cost me about € 100 spare parts to repair them, plus my job, before submitting a regulatory body to requalify.
This is a bad series. Problem solved on the new series.
Watch out into an opportunity not to fall on this series.
Otherwise it's good stuff.
