Help Choosing a MEWP.

With a wide range of mewps to choose from these guide should point you in the right direction. This guide covers the situation you will be working in the types of machine that might be suitable and finally the hire cost. If in doubt or for more advise and exact cost quotes, please get in touch with the team.

What 's the job you need to get to with a MEWP?

1. The task only needs one man, is inside and straight up. (This suggests a full Risk Assessment may find an IPAF category PAV could be suitable). These lifts generally transport one man and his tools straight up and can not be repositioned whilst raised. The smaller PAV machines (Push Around Vertical) are often specified where step ladders or podium steps or platforms might have been used in the past. After positioning the machine the operator is safe and secure in "cage" as it rises to the height required. The higher machines allow safe access to services in commercial premises for installation and maintenance.

2. There are obstructions under the task but we don't need to move about the site too much. The ground may also be uneven. (This suggests a full Risk Assessment may find an IPAF category 1b Static Boom Cherry Picker could be suitable). The machine we have in this range is a road towable cherry picker. Once in position outriggers are used to stabilise the base making it suitable for uneven ground. The articulation of the boom allows good height reach and horizontal moment. A wide area can be reached from a single position making it good for work on the exteriors of buildings.

3. The tasks are straight up and we will need to move around the site. (This suggests a full Risk Assessment may find an IPAF category 3a Mobile Vertical or Scissor Lift Hire could be suitable). as long as the ground is level and stable and there are no obstruction at height, scissor lifts can be drive whilst raised from one part of the job to another. The platform rises vertically so they are not suitable for jobs that you can not get almost straight under. The larger machines have big platforms and high safe working loads so are often chosen when a bit of team work at height is needed. Some do have extending platforms to allow a little outreach over obstacles once raised.

4. There are obstructions under the tasks and we will need to move around the site. (This suggests a full Risk Assessment may find an IPAF category 3b Mobile Boom Lift hire could be suitable). Probably the most versatile type of machine available in many different sizes to suite you jobs. The The booms on these can be articulated in different ways allowing the operator to position the platform in just the right place for efficient working even when reaching over obstacle the might be in the way.

What height do you need to be working at with your MEWP Hire?

We specify maximum working height at 2 meters above the maximum platform height. This is generally accepted as a comfortable maximum for average height operators working on short duration tasks. Your specific job requirements need to be considered if working at the maximum height. If you choose a Boom Lift because you need outreach, check the working envelope detailed on the individual product pages to ensure the combination of outreach and height is acceptable.

Do You Need Training for a Scissor lift or Cherry Picker?

Health and safety regulations stipulate that all personnel should be trained and competent to safely operate equipment. This does not have to be a formal qualification but employers and site management often demand that operators can prove they have formalised training to a recognised standard. The Astley Hire Training division provide IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) training and issue PAL cards (Powered Access Licence). The training and qualifications cover all categories including Cherry Pickers and Scissor Lifts.
