    2007 3.5T Nissan Cabstar 35.130 6 speed (146k miles - could increase slightly as it is in regular use) with recently remounted 2011 Skyking E200PX 20m boom. Remount done by Peter Douglass Platforms (PDP) (bills and LOLER available), and re-LOLERd 14/7/23. Machine purchased from PDP who had it on their hire fleet until we bought it. Original truck (2011) it was on had a major breakdown (not related to boom), and was more cost effective to re-mount on a replacement identical spec truck. Simple (reliable) hydraulic controls, not as fancy as more modern models, but significantly cheaper to buy & run. Reason for sale: we have two other newer truck mounted platforms and are looking to upgrade to a tracked machine. - Will be sold with full 12month MOT. - 19.7m max working height and 8.65m max outreach (see data sheet in photos). - Will be sold with new 6-month LOLER if purchased at list price (current LOLER expires January 2024) £15,000+VAT ONO Please note - list price is excluding VAT, which will be charged at 20%. Contact Nick - 07943 511 450

  5. Hi all - looking for some help, I write for a publication called Cranes & Access and was hoping to get a better understanding of how the Arb industry feels about using powered access (MEWPs/cherry pickers) and cranes for an article I am writing. I’d be interested to hear from anyone that either uses them on a regular basis; uses them sporadically; and those that have never or will never use them. To take part in the survey, please click on the link below. You will only be required to answer 5 questions and it shouldn’t take longer than a minute. http://bit.ly/CnA_Arb All submissions are completely anonymously with the data being used to work out the averages of the industry as a whole. Saying that, if you would like to provide further thoughts and opinions on the subject there is space to do so after completing the survey. Thanks! Ed

  7. Hi all Got a few jobs that require a mewp coming up. Wondered if anyone on here has one they hire out or subs out with as a labourer as well. I'm in the Bristol area. Would rather give a fellow arbtalker some work than hire one from a hire place. PM if you do and your rates. Cheers Josh
  8. Hi All Can anyone help? Our Gardner Denver Mewp (Defender) keeps stalling when in use. I think the revs should be going up on the engine when the PTO is engaged, however this doesn't happen. Any ideas, advice or does anyone know of anybody who is familiar with these machines. Thanks Steve
  9. Howdy, Anybody know what hydraulic pump a CTE z20e cherry picker has? Quote from CTE is £300 + VAT + delivery & as CTE tend to charge a fortune for parts, wanted to know options
