Hubsteiger - this is a
raisable platform on a collapsible horizontal V,

it's not a platform lift and it's not telescopic.
Does anyone know the German term ?

Explanation:
This is the regular (though whimsical) jargon term applied especially to the larger versions of such a working platform as used on utility trucks, firetrucks etc.
