Can you use this machine of rough terrain?

Yes, this machine has been designed for use on all terrain.

What do I need to charge this lift?

A 3.3KVA Transformer and 110v lead is required to charge this access platform. Most lifts need 6-8 hours to re-charge.  

Do I need to use a harness when using this MEWP?

Although it's not a legal requirement, the HSE strongly recommends that a full body harness with an adjustable lanyard is used when working from a boom type MEWP. These are available to purchase from ATP. Ask when you make your booking. 

Can I hire a transformer and lead with this lift?

Yes. Request when you place your order 

How long will the batteries last?

You should get a days work done with full battery charge. Driving the machine around a site will drain the batteries more quickly.

What happens about fuel?

The machine will be sent out with a full tank of red diesel.  You'll pay a re-fuelling charge at the end of the hire if the unit is not returned full.  You can re-fill the tank with either red or white diesel. 

Will this lift work on uneven ground?

No. This machine is fitted with a tilt alarm for the operator's protection. You should choose a diesel scissor lift with jacks or a static cherry picker with outriggers.
