Hinka cherry pickers, sometimes called spider cherry picker and cherry platform lifts, are amongst the most popular access platforms in the cherry tree care industry throughout the UK. One of the most common questions we get asked by our clients is about the best way to use them. This article intends to provide an answer to that question – in a very helpful way. Since many people do not want to make any modifications to their existing cherry platform or cherry picker before they send it off to us for installation, we thought we would provide an explanation of the different types of platforms available to our clients along with how to use them. In addition, this article will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of platforms. Click this to Read more articles.
First of all, there are two main types of access platforms in use today. The first type is the straight cherry picker; this is a simple lift which can be used to reach high branches and low trees. This system has the advantage of being fairly simple to install – it just needs to be attached to the tree surgeons trailer or base. On the other hand, the second type is the inclined platform. This is a slightly more complex lift with two separate platforms (one set high and attached to the trailer and another set positioned low and attached to the tree surgeon’s vehicle).
There are two major advantages of the inclined platform model of spider cherry picker; the first is that it allows you to work in more difficult areas, where a straight cherry picker cannot reach. Secondly, the elevated working height gives you greater access to high branches and trees. The working height is adjusted using hydraulic pressure, so you can choose the exact height you need, rather than trying to find a suitable height for your existing cherry picker. We recommend that you get a quote from a number of companies before making your purchase so that you can compare prices and features.
