Choosing an access platform for forestry work is no easy task, even for a tree surgeon. However, we believe that our access platforms come with so many benefits that you’d be missing out if you didn’t consider them. Take a look at the following reasons why you should choose our access platforms for forestry work above those of the competition.

Increased Ground Clearance

If you’re a forest manager, arborist, or another professional who maintains woodland, then you want to ensure that whatever equipment you use protects the natural environment. All our access platforms are engineered with increased ground clearance, making them easy to transport over rough terrain, without damaging the undercarriage.

Low ground pressure on the rubber tracks

Access platforms are heavy pieces of machinery prone to sinking. The rubber tracks on our mobile access platforms help to prevent damage to soft or wet ground. Our platforms spread the weight over a wide area, avoiding damage to lawns and stopping you from getting “stuck in the mud.”

Robust tracked chassis

A robust tracked chassis is ideal for difficult terrain, allowing you to carry out work in the forest, no matter how hostile.

Fits through a gateway and travels down a pathway

Our access platforms are designed with accessibility in mind. A platform from us will fit through a gateway and travel down a path.

Cranked outrigger Style

Not all forest floors are flat. Our cranked outrigger style lets you set up on steep inclines and uneven ground securely.

Kubota diesel and/or Honda petrol engine option

We let you choose between a Kubota diesel or Honda petrol engine for your access platform, depending on your needs.

Strong build quality and steel protection covers

The last thing you want is for your machine to be damaged whilst carrying out work. Not only do our platforms have durable build quality, but they also come with steel protection covers to reduce the risk of accidental damage. Access platforms, in our view, should be built to last.

Multi-speed tracking option

Multi-speed tracking options help your access platform operate on a variety of terrain types, giving you complete confidence.

DC/AC electric power for silent & fume free domestic work

We offer a variety of platforms with battery power DC/AC electric motors which operate silently and fume-free. Electric motors are long-lasting and great for the environment. Hybrid powered machines are also available offering even more flexibility.

Can be towed to site on a plant trailer by a suitable vehicle

Transporting our mobile platforms is easy. We’ve worked hard to ensure that you can tow our platforms up to a 22m working height. You can transport our access platforms on a plant trailer under 3,500kg.

Remote control for safer operation

There’s no need to manually interact with our access platforms while tree cutting – that might not be safe. That’s why we offer remote control functionality. You can control your access platform without needing to operate any control on the unit itself.

Our recommendation
