The platforms a number of safety features, including a travel stop controller, travel speed controller and rapid descent prevention valve. The move follows an increase in the number of customers it has that are working on unprepared greenfield construction sites.

JMS managing director Mark Jackson said: "Our Nagano crawler booms give our customers new options for working at height across rough and unstable terrain. They augment the capabilities of our wheeled Rough Terrain boom lifts and tracked spider platforms, so we are expecting them to be very popular with clients."

Vertimac’s European sales director for Nagano Thomas Méheust added: "We are very pleased that JMS has become the first company in the UK and Ireland to receive Nagano crawler aerial working platforms. Nagano machines are starting to be recognised all over Europe for their high quality, easy maintenance and long term reliability. We also carry a large inventory of new machines and spare parts which helps.”
