  • Experience

    For over 20 years, we've been on the job with companies working in solar farms, wind farms and other energy plants. And with all those years of experience comes the knowledge of what it takes to get the job done quickly, efficiently, and safely. So whatever your requirements may be for powered access platforms we can offer fitting solutions.

    Whilst the worker is standing in the elevated basket, we can also provide for hire a professional operator who has the flexibility to raise the basket to all necessary heights. Cherry pickers are perfect for reaching awkward or very high places or work above from the ground level. All cherry picker operators are fully IPAF trained.

    If in doubt about which machine offers the best solution, you can request a site survey.

    We also offer IPAF training for those who are operating powered access machines through our training division UTN Training.

  • Cherry pickers are one of the most popular ways to work at height. With platform heights ranging from 3m to 75m across our portfolio which includes scissor lifts, boom lifts, spider lifts, van and truck-mounted platforms for external works, we can support you and your green energy project at every height.

    If just one scissor lift is required or multiple powered access machines with an assortment of different specifications, we can help. We will work with you to ensure the correct MEWP is selected, based on the working height, load capacity and outreach requirements to tailor a hire package that meets the specific needs of your project.
