Teupen spiders for Elev8

UK rental company Elev8 Access Platforms has taken delivery of a Teupen Leo25T Plus and Leo36T spider lift.

Weighing 3,760kg, the 25.2 metre Leo25T Plus offers up to 15 metres with a 200kg platform capacity - 80kg at maximum outreach of 18 metres. Similarly, the 36 metre Leo36T offers up to 13.9 metres of outreach with a platform capacity of 200kg and has a maximum outreach of 15.6 metres with 80kg. Both models measure less than 1.6 metres wide and are under two metres high, while the Leo36T is 1.18 metre longer at 8.18 metres.

Elev8 managing director Jason Machin, said: “Our main purpose is rent reliability and to achieve this we only buy the best equipment for our hire fleet. Machines must be reliable, they must be safe and they must have the latest technology. We already knew that Teupen had an excellent reputation in the industry, and after a factory tour with Craig Rooke of Teupen UK demonstrating the machines to us we felt confident to purchase the Leo25Tplus and the Leo36T.”

Elev8 has added a Teupen Leo25T Plus and Leo36T spider lift to its fleet

He added: “Over the years Elev8 has invested heavily in truck mounted lifts, but there are times when a truck can’t access or set up on a customer’s worksite. The 25Tplus gives us a unique selling opportunity and as there are so few 36T’s in the UK, it made it a natural choice.”
