One of High Reaching Solutions regular clients, N Dean Tree and Garden Services of Malton, North Yorkshire, had the task of dismantling a very dangerous tree which was unsafe to climb and so requested the services of ‘Selina’, our 22m tracked spiderlift to help them do it safely. The tree was rotten in the centre and was in danger of falling and although situated in a garden the tree was awkward to get to and no other form of cherrypicker could get close enough to do the job. Nick has used ‘Selina’ on many occasions and found her controls precise and easy to use, along with her adjustable track settings to get through narrow gates and her adjustable leg settings enabling setting up in tight and awkward areas very beneficial. Being only three tonnes in total weight which is spread over the area of the tracks whilst travelling and then over the footprint when her legs are down gives a very low ‘point-loading’ and therefore leaves very little evidence that she was even there, which is a bonus for all concerned.
