A Cherry Picker (more correctly known as a MEWP, or mobile elevated working platform) has the distinct advantage when compared with conventional equipment such as ladders and towers, of being more manoeuvrable without needing more manpower.
This Nifty 90 model can be safely operated by one person and can be towed to site behind either a conventional car, a 4x4 or a small van fitted with a standard 50mm tow ball. For access inside a building or to the rear, only requires an opening of 0.9m (35ins) wide x 1.8m (5ft 11ins) high.
Diagram showing main dimensions of the machine.
We bought a Mobile Work Platform (Cherry Picker) recently to do some specialist work. However, the equipment is not in use every day (or even every week) and it is expensive to have inspected/tested every 6 months. To help offset some of these costs, when we are not using it, it is offered for hire at competitve rates.
The machine itself is easily towed behind any reasonable family-sized car and can be moved on level ground by one (or possibly) two people. It will extend up to 7.5m giving a maximum working height of approx 9m (30ft) which is enough to get to mid-roof level on a trypical 2-storey house or small block of flats.
