The Monitor TJ telescopic platforms with fly-jib boom are known for their rigidity and ease of operation from 16 to 30m. The fly-jib provides a more versatile use compared to the straight-telescopic models and with the fold-in stowing position of the cage at the rear of the vehicle it is quick and easy to use. The controls are housed within a fully protected area and provide the operator with exceptional smoothness and accuracy even at full height and outreach.
These compact machines are light enough to fit on commercial vehicles starting from 7.5 tonnes. Hoses and cables are placed within the booms, with an internal tracking which is protected from debris by a set of self-cleaning brushes placed at each of the telescopic sections. The independently controlled stabilizers give effective ground contact and clearance to allow the stabilization of the machine on uneven surfaces. Several stabilizer configurations are available to match the vehicle and to give the correct ratio in terms of the operation.
Over 18 years ago, Monitor Lifts introduced the first spider-lift to the Australian market. Today, Monitor is recognized as the leading supplier of spider-lifts and other specialized access machinery in Australasia.
National product support is what truly makes Monitor unique. Product training is conducted regularly throughout Australasia, and a national network of factory-trained service outlets ensures the highest standard of backup care and technical support
Monitor Industries are the exclusive importers and distributors of Specialized Aerial Access Equipment for Australia and New Zealand. Bringing the first so called Spider Lifts into Australia during 1998, Monitor Industries have now become well recognized nationally, as the “Difficult Access Specialists” throughout Australasia.
All Spider Lifts are designed with similar concept features; that is, light weight, very compact construction, suitable for narrow access sites, use four stabilizer legs for stability and levelling on steep and undulating terrain. These lifts generally feature dual-power hydraulic pumps to allow indoor and outdoor operation. Most models can be equipped with non-marking wheels or rubber crawler tracks to allow operation on interior flooring.
Now with several hundred units, of various models, working Nationally with Owner Operators, Hire Companies, Contractors, Councils, Electrical Authorities, Tree Loppers and Maintenance Companies, to name a few, Spider-Lifts are becoming very well recognized and rapidly gaining in popularity as their benefits are realized and proven.
These unique lifts are real problem-solvers in many applications. With a very comprehensive range of Spider-Lift models available, there is a machine available to suit almost every difficult access application. Some models are available with an expandable track system and Monitor’s Low Voltage Electrically Insulated models are now gaining entry into the Power Authority sector.
