It would depend on the machine, Ben.


Most manufacturers would not recommend it, however I do regular work with one that is lolered for lifting. You remove the basket and put a hook on the jib, and it's rated to lift around 250kgs. It's a 25m mewp with up to 12m outreach I think.


He's pretty close to you I think, CV23 postcode

Multitel have said its a no..

A crane/mewp sounds like a good option..
