What is a Spider Lift?

What is a Spider Lift?

A Spider lift is a self-propelled boom-type mobile elevating work platform which is designed to be light in weight, as compact as possible, and uses 4 stabilizer legs to achieve stability and levelling.

More business owners are choosing to rent or purchase a spider lift as they offer several benefits compared to trailer mounted lifts. This includes their compact size for accessing difficult locations and their 4WD self-propulsion to move quickly and traverse terrain that would stop other heavier or more cumbersome machines.

They are used in multiple industries including tree care professionals, solar turbine maintenance, stadium maintenance, TV & Film crews, painting contractors, restoration contractors, building maintenance, construction sites and utility work.  For many applications such as tree maintenance, the light-weight design of Spider lifts is a huge advantage, as it allows them to be towed behind a variety of vehicles.

A spider lift is the ideal aerial work platform to perform tasks at great height in limited spaces. With its four legs, a spider lift provides extra stability at every construction site. The light weight that characterizes this type of aerial platform makes the spider lift ideal for working in spaces that are easily damaged, for example when performing maintenance tasks indoors.

A spider lift is an ideal solution when working on great heights indoors, but can also be used on construction sites outdoors, in any weather condition. The lift is specially designed to access areas that more traditional cherry pickers can’t reach, and is often used instead of traditional and expensive scaffolding systems. Its light weight, flexibility, versatility and movability guarantees workers access to any small or narrow spot, effortlessly.
