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 and much safer.
This Nifty 120T model can be safely operated by one person and can be towed to site behind either a large car, a 4x4 or a small van fitted with a standard 50mm tow ball. For access inside a building or to the rear, it only requires an opening of 1.1m (3ft 7ins) wide x 1.9m (6ft 3ins) high.
Further enhancements of this machine include:
1> Fully braked, single axle trailer for safety and easy movement on-site
2> Hydraulic Stabiliser Arms for quick and easy setup and removal
3> Extending upper boom for extra reach - maximum 12m height and 4m to 6m outreach (see "Dimensions" below)
4> This model is all-electric and runs on internal batteries. This makes for super-quiet operation and is ideal for use inside a building. It can be charged overnight using a normal domestic 13A socket (or 110V supply for use on Construction Sites).
5> Now fitted with an "Electric Mover" unit . This unit is supplied with a small hand-held remote control allowing the machine to be moved by one person - this is only for use on level, smooth, solid ground such as concrete, asphalt or level lawn etc.

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 competitive 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 10m giving a maximum working height of approx 12m (40ft) which is enough to get to mid-roof level on a typical 3-storey house or other building.
