SPIDER LIFT ADVANTAGES AND USE
In #usa , aerial lift manufacturers have offered an array of different lifts – from boom lifts to scissor lifts. However, a relatively new kind of lift has entered the market known as the #spiderlift
Spider lifts are much like boom lifts, except with a smaller base with four legs, or outriggers, holding it firmly to the ground. This gives spider lifts many advantages: - Similar to an articulating boom lift, spider lifts have multiple hinges in its arm for flexibility and working its way around obstacles.
- Spider lift arms can extend up to 100 feet or more, depending on the manufacturer.
- Spider lifts can operate in difficult-to-access spots, depending on the build.
- Light weight. A boom lift requires towing or a heavy weight method of transportation. Spider lifts, on the other hand, are easier to handle because of its light weight and are also compact.
- Whereas boom lifts run on gasoline or diesel fuels, some spider lifts are battery powered, enabling operation inside buildings or in areas where gas pollution and exhaust is prohibited.
- Can work in almost any location. Spider lifts are rugged and durable enough to work outdoors while also small and compact enough to work indoors.
- Speaking of compact, some spiders can be stored in as small a package as 30 inches in width and about 6 feet tall.
- Most spiders have a carrying capacity of as much as 176 to 500 pounds.
- Since most spider lifts are track driven, this means that they are prone to getting flat tires and more importantly can operate on much steeper terrain then a wheeled machine.
- The spider lift is fast and easy to operate, even for a novice.
- The outriggers are lightweight and easy to extend, allowing the machine to fit in just about any tight spot.
- You won’t need to worry about hot or cold climates in spider lifts, as they can operate in most temperatures.
