What Is A Spider MEWP

Track Mounted Platforms (commonly known as Spider MEWP's) are categorised as a static boom, and are covered by the IPAF category 1B Powered Access License. These compact and lightweight machines are capable of working in conditions that other MEWP's (Mobile Elevated Work Platform's) simply cannot reach due to their compact design and versatile outriggers which allows them to set up safely on rough terrains; paired with their tracked chassis and robust design these fantastic machines can tackle most working at height applications.

With their low ground bearing pressure and narrow compact design, Spider Boom's are perfect for when your application has height, width or weight restrictions on site. They can gain access through standard doorways, tackle gradients and rough terrain, while still allowing the user to reach heights ranging from 11m to 50m.

In most cases Spider MEWP's are available in Diesel or can be run on Electric with a constant power supply, most manufacturers have a Lithium option and some even have them available in Hybrid giving you the freedom to work indoors on Diesel and internally on Electric at the flip of a switch.
