They are ideal for working at height every day in various applications such as gardening, construction and maintenance, in internal and external environments.

What is a spider lift?
Spiderlifts feature dimensions compact enough enter buildings through standard single or double doorways. They are incredibly compact, with short closed length for ultimate manoeuvrability. Some models are even shorter than modern day Mini’s!
They also use tracks which spread the load of the machine over a larger surface area than wheels do. This essentially reduces the ground bearing pressure on delicate floors and soft ground as well as adding traction when it is slippery.
Giving the ability to fold down narrow ensures that the Spiderlift can access tight areas and doorways. They also give increased levelling ability allowing for safe operation on slopes and uneven terrain. The spiderlift’s low gross weight also makes them very transportable.
