Teupen spider lifts for MBS Tracked Access
Teupen spider lifts
Tracked platform hire specialist, MBS Tracked Access has purchased three 'new generation' Teupen Leo SpiderliftsTM from platform distributor, Ranger Equipment.
They purchased two 'facelift' Leo 23GT tracked spiders (23m w/h) and a 'facelift' Leo18GT (17.9m w/h) to update and expand its fleet of Teupen machines.
The deal with Ranger, Teupen's exclusive distributor in the UK and Ireland, included the trade-in of MBS's current 23m Leos.
The new Leo18GT will fill a gap between MBS's 23m machines and 14.9m w/h Leo15GT.
MBS Tracked Access, which was established in 2006, now runs five Leos - the largest being a Leo30T (30m w/h).
The machines are mainly hired 'with operator' for shopping centre and facilities maintenance work.
They are also used by parent company, MBS Grounds Maintenance , for tree surgery and building maintenance.
MBS managing director, Martyn Bass, said: 'We have replaced our 23m Leos every two years to keep up with Teupen innovation.
It means the machines remain within warranty and we are offering customers the cutting edge in tracked platform performance and user simplicity which is where Teupen excels'.
In trading up to the latest Leo23GT models, MBS has taken advantage of the new option of Teupen's innovative hydraulic track height adjustment.
"It's much simpler and quicker," said Mr Bass.
'The system is straightforward to demonstrate to hire customers and for them to use.
We have noticed the difference it makes to our contract maintenance work, as well.
The ease of adjusting track height to drive along kerbs and sloping ground is a big advantage in manoeuvring around site for arborist work, gutter cleaning, roof slate repairs, and so on'.
Quicker boom and drive functions, when running off electric or diesel power, have also boosted job efficiency using the 'facelift' Leos.
Mr Bass said: 'Teupen have addressed small issues such as improving the boom support and outrigger stowing position for transit'.
New 25m Leo Spiderlift, with big 25m outreach will be showcased on the Ranger Equipment stand at Vertikal Days, UK and Ireland's only dedicated access and lifting event.
With hire companies being ready to invest again in access fleets, Ranger Equipment is demonstrating the return-on-investment on owning its premium engineered platform brands at Vertikal Days.
Ranger Equipment has introduced a reduced weight trailer for Teupen's Leo13GT 12.7m working height tracked spiderlift.
Ranger Equipments financial arm is offering a 0 per cent finance opportunity for purchases on the Leo 13GT spiderlift recently launched by Teupen.
Ranger Equipment supplies the Global Series of 12m/14m working height articulated booms from Aichi.
