Australasia – Since 1997

Over 18 years ago, Monitor Lifts introduced the first spider-lift to the Australian market. Today, Monitor is recognised as the leading supplier of spider-lifts and other specialised access machinery in Australasia.

Pictured here is the very first spider-lift ever in Australia: the 11m Leguan. This machine opened up a completely new way of accessing difficult locations.

National product support is what truly makes Monitor unique. Product training is conducted regularly throughout Australasia, and a national network of factory-trained service outlets ensures the highest standard of backup care and technical support is made available for all Monitor Lifts owners and operators.

Monitor Industries are the exclusive importers and distributors of Specialised Aerial Access Equipment for Australia and New Zealand.  Bringing the first so called Spider Lifts into Australia during 1998, Monitor Industries have now become well recognised Nationally, as the “Difficult Access Specialists” throughout Australasia.

All Spider Lifts are designed with similar concept features; that is, light weight, very compact construction, suitable for narrow access sites, use four stabiliser legs for stability and levelling on steep and undulating terrain.  These lifts generally feature dual-power hydraulic pumps to allow indoor and outdoor operation.  Most models can be equipped  with non marking wheels or rubber crawler tracks to allow operation on interior flooring.

17 years ago, the Spider Lift concept was largely unknown in Australia.  Now with several hundred units, of various models, working  Nationally with Owner Operators, Hire Companies, Contractors,  Councils, Electrical Authorities, Tree Loppers and Maintenance Companies, to name a few, Spider-Lifts are becoming very well recognised and rapidly gaining in popularity as their benefits are realised and proven.

These unique lifts are real problem-solvers in many applications.  With a very comprehensive range of Spider-Lift models available, there is a machine available to suit almost every difficult access application.  Some models are available with an expandable track system and Monitor’s Low Voltage Electrically Insulated models are now gaining entry into the Power Authority sector.
