The latest addition to our fleet soon to be with us is LOTTIE, a lithium/diesel hybrid tracked spider with 19.9m working height and 9.5m side outreach. 
She was born in Italy at Platform Basket and they have kindly kept us informed of her growth with these progress photos. A very close eye was kept on her as she grew, ensuring healthy and steady growth through her development. 
Platform Basket didn't need to cut her umbilical cord as she has remote control capability. They did however, ensure that all her functions worked correctly, including: 
Kubota diesel and Lithium power sources 
Remote Diagnostics 
Duel Speed Tracking 
Track Widening System 
Duel Boom Telescopic Operations 
Basket Rotation 
250kg SWL (Safe Working Load) Unrestricted 
Automatic Stabilisation 
Automatic 'Go-Home' Boom Function. 
First Parts Trolley with Lotties Components
Second Trolley with more Components
