The Spider 39T was created on the back of the enormous success achieved by its “big brother” Spider 43T, launched 2 years ago: like the 43-metre platform, it is a telescopic boom and jib model. Platform Basket opted to design a new platform inspired by a recent, highly successful model to allow hire companies to have similar equipment within their fleet, resulting in a streamlining of both the training necessary to operate them and of the assistance for the platforms themselves.
Just like the rest of Platform Basket’s Spider range of tracked self-propelled platforms in the 12- to 43-metre range, the Spider 39T is equipped with extendible crawler tracks and simple and intuitive controls. This aerial platform is incredibly stable and, at the same time, easily transportable. These characteristics plus a compact size that allows its use in narrow spaces, make it a good choice for those involved in jobs like tree trimming and pruning, maintenance work, painting and/or any other work at a height that is hard to reach with a normal platform.

UK tree surgeon Thompson Tree Services and arboricultural equipment rental company Cutting Edge Arb have each taken delivery of a 19 metre Platform Basket Spider 20.95 spider lift.
The new machines, supplied by UK distributor Promax Access, offer a maximum outreach of 9.5 metres with an up & over height of seven metres and an unrestricted platform capacity of 250kg. Power comes from a Z482 Kubota diesel while features include width and height adjustable tracks, a 1.8 metre jib as well as automatic outrigger and boom stowing functions.
Lawrence Thompson, owner of Thompson Tree Services said: “We originally looked at a few other spider lifts on the market, some of which offered slightly more outreach but with a reduced platform capacity. The problem is that by the time one of our guys is loaded up with his kit and chainsaw it will already be pushing the capacity at well over 100kg. On top of this, the 20.95’s boom movements felt a lot more steady and controlled than the other models.”
Cutting Edge Arb owner, Chris Fouch, added: “The build quality and durability of our new 20.95 is very impressive and for a rental product aimed specifically for customers the arb industry it has everything you could want. In fact I have already had a number of customers compliment it and request it on future jobs.”
