Up and Under - bridge inspection units

Facelift's Ascendant 17 enables you to reach places where other machines can not. Recently the 17m truck mounted cherry picker was used on Twickenham bridge, as with over 12 metres of out reach it was able to reach over a small side stream, and to get under the arch of the bridge structure.

The truck mounted 17m has the flexibility of outreach and transport height for this type of work and also has the benefit that it can be driven on a standard driving license. This truck mounted platform proves very popular with our customers, many of whom request it time and again.

Nigel Litherland head of Facelift's Highway structure team, recommended the 17m cherry picker to be used after carrying out site surveys to establish most appropriate piece of access equipment.
