Spider MEWP Top Tips! Always use nylon spreader pads under the outriggers - no matter how solid you think the ground you are working on. There may be underground services or voids you aren't aware of... supply 400mm pads as standard, FOC with every hire πŸ‘

Double (NO) Trouble! Spider MEWPs tend to have a lesser SWL in the cage than a boom or truck mount - though the HALEO24s shown here have a class-leading 250kg πŸ‹οΈ If you need more though, you can always use two!

SpiderMEWP Top Tips! When specifying a spider MEWP, don't forget that the outreach quoted is from the CENTRE of the machine! In most circumstances you need to take into account the setup width of the outriggers as well πŸ‘

Spider MEWP Top Tips! Remember - outriggers are NOT the same as stabilisers! The outriggers on a spiderMEWP must be deployed far enough to lift the tracks off the ground completely - taking the full weight of the machine. You should be able to see under the tracks!

Spider MEWP top tips πŸ‘ Partially deploy the outriggers when driving over rough ground! Hovering the feet a few inches above the ground while you are tracking can help to prevent an overturn - same goes for slopes and ramps.

Spider MEWP Top Tips! When driving a spider MEWP, make the best use of the remote control and stay well back from the machine. If you were unlucky enough to have a problem - overturning or a malfunction - you will be safe out of harm's way.

While powered access is a safe method of working at height; MEWPs can be extremely dangerous pieces of equipment if used incorrectly, by untrained operators or by those who are unfamiliar with a machine...

Modern buildings constructed on tight sites can often pose a few issues when the time comes to give them a spring clean. Spider lifts; like the HACS230 shown here, are perfect for these areas with their compact transport dimensions and variable outrigger setups - problem solved!

Not just for height - spider lifts are great for outreach too, even at low level! While sometimes this is useful for reaching over obstacles, it can also be used to minimise the number of setups required on a job that needs doing quickly!
