Lift-off for Leguan

Avant, the manufacturer of compact articulated loaders, reports that demand is growing amongst a diverse range of users for products from its sister company, Leguan, which makes powered access machinery. 

Several Leguan machines were displayed at Vertikal Days last month, including the T135 hybrid spider lift (pictured), which is powered by a battery supplemented by a petrol engine. 

Jori Mylläri and Mikko Toivanen, who are respectively Leguan’s vice-president sales and marketing and after-sales manager and had flown over from the company’s headquarters in Finland, told me that the machine is popular with users and hire companies because only one joystick is sued to control drive to the unit and basket operation. 

They also said that demand for this unit, and others like the 190 model access platform, is growing amongst arboriculture professionals seeking to reduce the amount of tree climbing they have to do. The chassis and tracks are designed to give protection on rough terrain, while compact dimensions facilitate access in confined locations.
