Trees & Gardens owner Paul Williams, said: “A spider lift is a big investment for smaller companies like Trees & Gardens. However it has proved to be excellent value for money for tree work and is also allowing us to expand the business. We have had spider lifts before, but the compact dimensions of the Hinowa enable us to do so much more.”
