Italian rental company Hoist Noleggio has taken delivery of two customised Easy Lift spider lifts for work in the narrow, congested streets of Naples old town.
The first unit is a 26 metre R260 which features a four section boom and articulated jib to offer a 13.5 metre outreach and a maximum platform capacity of 230kg. A larger R300 unit features an extra boom section to provide a 30.5 metre working height, a 14.5 metre outreach and a 230kg platform capacity.
Both units have been customised with a special narrow outrigger configuration option of just 2.3 by 3.75 metres. The manufacturer has also increased the maximum boom angle to 87 degrees, while redesigning the jib and platform connection. Positioned directly under the main boom, rather than to the side, the jib not only provides an extra metre of outreach, but also offers 180 degrees articulation. Finally the Hatz diesels have extra noise reduction equipment for work in densely populated areas.
Established in 1989, Hoist Noleggio offers a wide range of large truck mounted platforms and spider lifts, along with boom and scissor lifts and Geda passenger/goods hoists from its location in Naples.
