These hoists are trailer mounted and self-erecting, so they can be moved from one location to another quickly and easily. Their operation is simple; a hydraulically powered winch extends and retracts the ladders to the desired height and another winch raises and lowers a carriage, which runs on the ladders. The carriage can take a variety of platforms and has a safe working load of 250kg. The popular tipping carriage allows easy access to the platform without compromising the edge protection. Heights of up to 23m can be achieved with the machines in our hire fleet. A Honda engine powers the hydraulics but for confined spaces and noise sensitive environments, an electric motor can be specified.
