FAQs

Let us now review the most commonly asked questions and answers on access platforms sales and hire services

What must be taken into account before working platforms and access equipment are hired or purchased?

You should account for your choice of equipment and the turning radius available in the environment where you will work. So, consider the space the MEWP equipment will have to manoeuvre before you rent or buy access platforms. Of course, the price of the access platform of your choice is a consideration, as well as the pre-sales and after-sales service and warranties.

Can I hire a MEWP?

Absolutely! At Angus, we have over 35 years of experience in access platform hire and sales service, including scissor lifts and cherry pickers.

What are the types of MEWP?

Boom and scissor lifts are both MEWP. Boom lifts hold workers in a crane and can move them horizontally and vertically. Scissor lifts can only move up and down. At Angus, there are access platform sales and for hire for both options.

Is Genie a MEWP?

Yes, Genie is a MEWP. It is a self-propelled boom lift that can help workers reach high heights. 

What is Mewp equipment?

MEWP equipment consists of mechanical access platforms for hire or sale from specialized manufacturers and dealerships. MEWP stands for Mobile Elevating Work Platform. You can rent access platforms or buy access platforms with Angus

What are disadvantages of using powered access platforms?

There are relatively few disadvantages vs. the wide range of advantages when you rent or buy access platforms. Disadvantages include the slow speed of the platform, the shakiness and discomfort when the platform goes up, and the intrusive noise of these machines. Another source of many issues is the piston in the arm that lifts the access platform hire. The piston has oil that can overheat, leak, or produce unpleasant odours. 

However, as mentioned, these disadvantages are significantly outweighed by the many advantages of access platforms, including but not limited to increased productivity.

What is an access platform?

An access platform is a piece of forklift equipment available for sale or hire, to give workers a permanent or temporary solution to working at various heights.
