Trailer mounted lifts are a specialised Elevating Work Platform (or EWP) designed to help people work safely at heights.
One of the most versatile types of EWP in Australia, trailer mounted lifts have many features that make them ideal for arborists and tradies. Trailer mounted lifts:
Importantly, trailer mounted lifts are considerably lighter than a standard boom lift of the same height. For example, where a boom lift weighs 10 tonnes, a trailer mounted lift with similar specs will weigh under 3.5 tonnes. It gives you a considerable advantage when you’re setting up in areas where space is at a premium.
Trailer mounted lifts offer the right combination of safety, efficiency, and adaptability that many businesses can benefit from. These include:
Using a trailer mounted lift helps arborists avoid the dangerous task of having to climb trees all day, every day. They help increase safety and prevent fatigue for workers.
Trailer mounted lifts can also be a more cost-effective solution for arborists than paying professional tree climbers.
Painters, electricians, and plumbers can all benefit from using a trailer mounted lift. The machine avoids the need for scaffolding, offers quicker set up time, and allows tradies to access difficult areas more efficiently.
A trailer mounted lift helps property maintenance workers to clean windows from a solid platform without the use of scaffolding. Their light weight means workers can easily use the machine to access almost any application.
Trailer mounted lifts can help electrical workers to easily access street lights and to operate in and around the confined spaces of a substation.
And since they are towable behind most vehicles, they can be used almost anywhere.
A high quality machine will have a long service life if it’s properly taken care of. Trailer mounted lifts should have a quarterly service every 3 months, and an annual service (you guessed it!) every year.
Australian Standards also require a 10 year rebuild/recertification for trailer mounted lifts, followed by a rebuild every 5 years.
Yes – trailer mounted lifts are highly suited to use on sloping terrain, since they can be set up on slopes of up to 12 degrees without any packing.
And with the correct packing technique, they can also be used on even steeper slopes
Trailer mounts can lift up to 29m in Australia and 12.7m horizontally. In terms of basket capacity, they have a large Max Rated Capacity (MRC) of 200Kg, which makes them suitable for two men and tools.
Monitor Lifts have found that the 2300 EX trailer mount is ideal for the arbor industry due to its self-propelled drive, large vertical & horizontal outreach, ease of transport using a 3.5 tonne GVM vehicle, and the option of using both battery and petrol power.
What’s more, its knuckle boom enables easy up-and-over outreach for difficult to reach jobs.
All Monitor trailer mounted lifts offer the option of a rotating basket, allowing you to approach your work at an angle. This can help you deal with obstructions, but still face directly on to the working area. A rotating basket can make it far easier to reach any job.
There are four ways to identify the Max Rated Capacity (MRC) of a basket:
To ensure you are working within the trailer mounted lift’s MRC, make sure you consider the weight of tools, harnesses and workers – in fact anything you’ll have inside the basket. Some larger machines can have a safe working load of 200Kg or more.
Depending on the exact machine you choose, there are two broad categories of available accessories: either factory fitted or optional extras.
Factory fitted accessories
A trailer mounted lift can be towed with a 3.5 tonne GVM vehicle, so most vehicles used by tradies can easily handle towing the machine.
That means that when you choose a trailer mounted lift, you won’t need to factor in the cost of a new truck with ramps and the like, just to get to site. You also don’t face the fuel bill that comes with using a truck.
