Cutting Through The Sales Pitch
What to consider when selecting the best machine possible to increase your productivity and profit.
In today’s market, spider lifts are the investment for the future. However, selecting the right machine for the job can sometimes be difficult. When trying to determine the appropriate specifications required for your new asset, factors such as pricing, commission-driven sales tactics and equipment availability can often impact the purchase choice made by end-users.
Access in Urban Areas
The whole concept of a Spider Lift (or tracked access machine), is primarily for access. When it comes to negotiating the tighter and more narrow spaces found in urban areas, users should consider a spider lift with the most compact design, with the longest outreach specifications available. (The ultimate spider lift for urban arborists will ideally offer the best ratio of smaller stowed dimensions, with a 17m outreach).
The level of access is therefore minimally restricted by either factor.
Spider Lifts that combine a true ZED boom configuration with the smallest of footprints allows for better boom manipulation in far tighter work zones. ZED with Zero tail swing also provides the best up-and-over capabilities available.
Unrestricted 200kg Outreach
A high-performance fixed work envelope provides unrestricted outreach at 200kg, without weight limiting. No services housed externally need to be hooked up, minimising damage and ensuring a clean boom design.
An electronics philosophy of ‘simplicity’, increases reliability, reduces downtime and lowers service costs on any spider lift. This ensures an overall improvement on return-on-investment.
When we look at investing in this style of equipment, we are after high utilisation coupled with a high return. When purchasing a spider lift, or any other asset item, it’s critical to understand the purpose of the equipment, it’s philosophy, as well as the features, functions and benefits of similar options.
