New spider manufacturer at APEX

I-Lift Access Solutions The new IL18 from I-Lift Access Solutions

A new aerial platform company was launched at APEX last week. I-Lift Access Solutions specialises in spider lifts and is based in Bari, southern Italy.

The company was founded by longstanding professionals in the spider lift sector from that region, with the factory opening in September 2022. The aim is to launch five sophisticated, yet easy to use models from 13m – 26m working height. The first model, on show at APEX, is the 18m working height IL18, to be followed soon by the IL21.

Features of the IL18 include an 18m working height, 8.3m outreach and 230kg capacity in the basket across the entire working area.

This is accompanied by a double pantograph boom, plus telescopic section and 90 degree articulating jib. This allows overpasses up to 8m. There is also an automatic stabilisation system. All hydraulic pipes and electric cables are placed inside the boom sections.

The proportional electro-hydraulic control system, with multifunction display, are designed to provide an easy user experience. Thanks to the company’s Platform Service Support, the spider lift remains fully connected.

The company said the models are aimed at outdoor use, which will be followed by more indoor potential when a lithium version is introduced. The suitable applications range from maintenance to tree care. For the latter, a compact turntable, with a steel cover provides a sturdy exterior.

For now the company is concentrating on perfecting the product and the European market, which will then be followed by a push further afield.
