  1. The new CMC Sup 24 Tracked Access Platform is becoming popular in the US with arborists' - see this video and let us know your thoughts. Available in any colour E.g. Husky orange for the Arborist with features including chainsaw slots in the basket, basket splitter so two can work at the same time and hydraulic leg covers etc. Video Link: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG-0AEM0DN4]Crawler78_Draft08.mp4 - YouTube[/ame] If anyone would like any information or has any questions please give us a shout. Best Regards
  2. Hi, That seems expensive for a one-day hire of a 17m, is that a local company or do you have to draft one from a good journey away? Your idea sounds good too, and very practical. Similar to the HIAB operation from the ground but for lifting timber. Best Regards Alex
  3. I'm Alex by the way from Hi-Lift Access based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. We operate a fleet of tracked access platforms for nationwide hire, operated and non-operated. We also sell new and used platforms as a UK dealer for two manufacturers; Matilsa and Custers. Feel free to have a look on our website, the address is: http://www.hi-liftaccess.co.uk Best Regards Alex
  4. Hi David, Thanks for your message. What would you say the average height required is, from your experience? We are currently looking at having two narrow-width tracked arb-models, a 24m and a 32m (Both articulated with impressive outreach). If you can think of any other issues with the tracked machines you have used in the past or perhaps new features, please let me know and I can make sure your invited to the testing days. Best Regards Alex
  5. If anyone needs help with specifications of cherrypickers, specifically tracked and rough-terrain; please give us a shout where we can help direct you to the ideal peice of equipment! We are also looking for arborists' thoughts and opinions of current cherrypicker problems and solutions into improving our own fleet of tracked access platforms and creating with our manufacturer an Arb-Specific Machine (Average Working Height: 24m) Ideas, preferences would be much appreciated. Best Regards Alex
  6. What are everyones thoughts and opinions of current aerial work platforms in the industry? Could there be anything functionally better to improve the way you work whilst using a MEWP? Also what machine do you prefer to work with if you have used an aerial work platform before? Regards
