In the same way that computers have taken over from typewriters, aerial work platforms have taken over from ladders. Used mainly for temporary work jobs such as maintenance or repair, aerial work platforms are mechanical devices which are used to lift workers into the air and, when used correctly, they have a great range of benefits for the companies which use them. They can reduce labour for employees and also vastly cut the time needed to carry out certain tasks in the workplace. Midland Pallet Trucks are a UK provider of hard-wearing pallet trucks that have a great numbers of advantages for many businesses and also stock a range of aerial work platforms.
The most budget-friendly aerial work platform that Midland have in their range is the MJCPT 1.7 Mobile Aerial Work Platform; a compact scissor lift platform which allows one person to work at height (the maximum lift capacity is 240kg). The highest working height made possible from this truck is 3.73m and the slim frame can fit through a standard door frame, making it ideal for use in hospitals, schools and other public environments. At £2,750.00, the platform is the cheapest in Midland’s range, but the price certainly doesn’t compromise on quality; all of the trucks and lift platforms offered by Midland are hardwearing and durable.
The next model in the range is the MJCPT 2.5 Mobile Aerial Work Platform, which has a similar specification to the previous model, except for the maximum platform lift height. This model boasts a 2.5m maximum lift height, with a maximum working height of 4.5m. These types of work platforms are much more versatile than mobile towers, as they can be adjusted at the touch of a button; this unit comes with emergency down and stop buttons for optimum control. This model is available from Midland at just £3,500.00.
Standing at 3.0m when fully extended, with a maximum working height of 5.0m, the final unit in Midland’s range is a true giant of aerial work platforms. The MJCPT 3.0 Mobile Aerial Work Platform, as with the other models in the range, comes with features such as lockable wheels, a lockable entry/exit door and a 12-month LOLER certificate and CE certification. The integrated charger and battery charge indicator ensure that operators can be sure of their power usage at all times, and the levelling indicators and attached outriggers ensure safety and stability. This practical aerial work platform is available for just £3,900.00 from Midland Pallet Trucks.
