MBS Tracked Access adds spiders

UK based tracked aerial lift rental company MBS Tracked Access has added three new Teupen Leo’s to update and expand its spider lift fleet.

The purchase includes two 23 metre Leo 23GTs and a 17.9 metre Leo18GT. The deal involved MBS trading-in its existing 23 metre Leos to Ranger, Teupen's UK/Ireland distributor, with the new Leo18GT filling the gap between the new Leo 23GTs and 14.9 metre Leo15GT.

Established in 2006, MBS runs five Leos – the largest a 30 metre Leo30T – and generally rents the spiders ‘with operator’ for shopping centre and facilities maintenance work. The spider lifts are also used by parent company, MBS Grounds Maintenance for tree surgery and building maintenance.

MBS managing director Martyn Bass said: “We have replaced our 23 metre Leos every two years, in order to keep up with the latest innovations. It means the machines remain within warranty and we are offering customers the latest tracked platform performance and user simplicity.”

“Teupen’s latest Leo23GT features hydraulic track height adjustment which is straightforward to demonstrate and for hire customers to use. We have also noticed the difference it makes to our contract maintenance work. The ease of adjusting track height to drive along kerbs and sloping ground is a big advantage in manoeuvring around site for arborist work, gutter cleaning, roof slate repairs and so on.”

“Teupen has addressed small issues such as improving the boom support and outrigger stowing position for transit,” said Bass. “They are minor changes that give that extra edge and added convenience which you appreciate as an established platform hirer and user.”
