TRUCK MOUNTED PLATFORM HIRE LEEDS

A Truck Mounted Platform Hire in Leeds was the answer for routine maintenance on the lighting columns at this Leeds retail park.

One of our 28m Truck Mounted Access Platforms was selected and deployed from our depot near Leeds and was the perfect choice for the works. The unique ultra short wheel base truck occupied very little space in the car park ensuring customers visiting the retail outlets virtually still had full use of the car park

SPIDERLIFT HIRE MANCHESTER

Track Mounted Spiderlift Hire can be the perfect solution to working at height where traditional Cherry Pickers cannot gain access. Working at this sports stadium site near Manchester, one of our clients was required to remove some existing advertising from around the stands. We were asked to complete a site survey and informed that there was very little room around the edge of the football pitch. A comprehensive site survey was completed and the most appropriate aerial platform for the job was selected – a Teupen Leo 23GT. This Spiderlift could easily traverse down the side of the pitch and set up without causing any surface damage to either the pitch or its surroundings. Our fleet of Tracked Access Platforms …

TRUCK MOUNTED PLATFORM HIRE LONDON

Our Cherry Picker hire team recently deployed a 70m Truck Mounted Platform Hire from our London depot for a client who installs cavity wall insulation on aging buildings. The Truck Mounted Platform was used to span over garden areas and reach all areas on each of the buildings elevations. Our client then pumped the insulation in to the building through key points on the walls. Cavity wall insulation is used to reduce heat loss through a cavity wall by filling the air space with material that inhibits heat transfer. This immobilises the air within the cavity preventing convection, and can substantially reduce space heating costs. The installation on this London based site was quick and cost effective thanks to the …

CHERRY PICKER HIRE – NEW NIFTYLIFT BOOMS

Cherry Picker Hire fleets are set to get some new additions from manufacturer Niftylift. They have launched two new fully redesigned and updated versions of its popular narrow HR15N and HR17N booms. Both are still 1.5 metres wide but now feature a reduced stowed height of less than two metres. These two Cherry Picker models were originally launched nearly 15 years ago and their stowed heights had crept up to more than 2.1 metres. Although a relatively small reduction, Niftylift says it is very important for specific rental applications such as cherry pickers accessing and working in shopping centres. A lot of thought had to be put into the new Cherry Picker design to reduce the height and weight has …
