Three new Teupen spider lifts for MBS Tracked Access

Essex-based MBS Tracked Access has taken delivery of three ‘new generaton’ Teupen Leo Spiderlifts from platform distributor, Ranger Equipment. The tracked platorm hire specialist has purchased two ‘facelif’ Leo 23GT tracked spiders (23 m w/h) and

a ‘facelif’ Leo18GT (17.9 m w/h) to update and expand its feet of Teupen machines.

The deal with Chesterfeld-based Ranger, Teupen’s exclusive distributor in the UK and Ireland, included the trade-in of MBS’s current 23 m Leos. The new Leo18GT will fll a gap between MBS’s 23 m machines and 14.9 m w/h Leo15GT. MBS Tracked Access, which was established in 2006, now runs fve Leos – the largest being a Leo30T (30 m w/h). The machines are mainly hired ‘with operator’ for shopping centres and facilites maintenance work. They are also used by parent company, MBS Grounds Maintenance Ltd, for tree surgery and building maintenance.

Managing director, Martyn Bass, said: “We have replaced our 23 m Leos every two years to keep up with Teupen innovaton. It means the machines remain within warranty and we are ofering customers the cutng edge in tracked platorm performance and user simplicity.”

In trading up to the latest Leo23GT models, MBS has taken advantage of the new option of Teupen’s innovative hydraulic track height adjustment. “It’s much simpler and quicker,” said Mr Bass. “The system is straightforward to demonstrate to hire customers and for them to use. We have noticed the difference it makes to our contract maintenance work, as well. The ease of adjustng track height to drive along kerbs and sloping ground is a big advantage in manoeuvring around site for arborist work, guter cleaning, roof slate repairs, and so on.”

Mr Bass contnued “Teupen have addressed small issues such as improving the boom support and outrigger stowing positon for transit. They are minor changes that give that extra edge and added convenience which you appreciate as an established platorm hirer and user.”
