Score High In London

A fleet of Skyjack electric scissors

and vertical mast lifts are helping

to build two new landmarks –

Nova, Victoria, a luxury develop-

ment in central London.

Upon completion in October,

Nova, Victoria, which sits on

5.5 acres of land in the heart of

London’s prestigious West End,

will house 170 luxury apartments,

shops, offices, bars and


At Nova, Victoria, a combina-

tion of around 50 Skyjack ma-

chines - including SJIII 3219 DC

electric scissors, SJ16 vertical

mast lifts, SJ6832 rough terrain

scissors and SJ51 articulating

booms - are helping a number of

contractors install fire protection

equipment, as well as electrical

and other mechanical construc-

tion work.

“Our clients’ requirements can vary from one

site to the next, from limited access to the work

area, weight-sensitive floors, as well as those

awkward-to-reach places,”

said Alec Ullmer, National Sales Manager of rental

company Advanced Access Platforms, which is supplying

the Skyjack machines to the developers

The SJIII 3219 has a working height of 25.5 ft (7.79 m),

weight capacity of 550 lbs

(249 kg), a 3 ft (0.91 m) roll-out

extension deck, and is drivable

at full height.

The SJ16 has a working

height of 22 ft (6.75 m), weight

capacity of 500 lbs (227 kg), a

traversing platform of 20 in

(0.51 m), and is drivable at full


Both the SJIII 3219 and SJ16

have variable speed, dual hold-

ing brakes, and a zero inside

turning radius, making them eas-

ily manoeuvrable in tight spaces.

Both units also feature a tilt

alarm and are telematics-ready

for enhanced return on


The machines, supplied

through Sutton-based, Advanced

Access Platforms, provide aerial

work platforms, booms, scissor

lifts, and other specialist machinery to development

schemes. The company is adding 91 new Skyjack ma-

chines to its fleet this year, bringing its total fleet to more

than 400 Skyjack unites – which equates to nearly 75%

of its entire product range.

MB Works With Everything!

THE MB-L160 crushing bucket has recently been installed

on a telescopic handler for an Italian client, showing that

MB buckets can work with all sizes of machine.

The MB-L160 is a crushing bucket with a productivity

of 20 m


/h that can be mounted either on telehandlers,

wheel loaders (7 to 10 tons), backhoe loaders and

skid with either rubber tyres or tracked (with operating

weights of more than 4.5 tons).

With the MB-L160, any of these machines can be

turned into a mobile crusher, efficient, sturdy and ex-

tremely versatile.

The characteristic design of the crusher mouth,

combined with the structural properties of the

MB-L160, allows you to completely eliminate vi-

brations during the crushing phase so none are

transferred to the telescopic arm and stresses that

could damage the machine are avoided. The vi-

brations, in fact, are completely absorbed by the

material to be crushed.

The MB-L160 is strong, made of Hardox steel

with a weight of 1.45 tons. Special upkeep? None,

other than the normal routine periodic inspec-

tions and regular greasing. The MB-L160 is hy-

draulic operated with capacity ranging from

110 litres per minute and 200 bar of pressure.
