Leguan’s 225 spider lift lands Downunder

Leguan’s 225 spider lift has made in an immediate impact in Australia, with arborists signing up for the new units before they’d even landed.

As reported last issue, Finnish company Leguan, through its Australian distributor, Monitor Lifts, is offering a new model: the 225, ideal for even Australia’s most demanding environments, and a great option for rental companies and arborists. The Leguan 225 offers unmatched all-terrain capabilities, ease of use, smart technological innovations, and can be comfortably moved around on a four tonne or 4.0T GVM GVM trailer.

The 225 can be comfortably moved around on a 4.0T GVM or 4.5T GVM trailer.

Everything needed

Joystick controls make controlling the boom a natural and intuitive process, enhanced by the boom structure itself being so steady during operation. Efficiency is increased thanks to the 225’s smart features, including the capacity to operate up to four functions simultaneously, while durability is excellent thanks to the boom being shielded from external blows, falling branches and sawdust. Standard features include:
• 21hp Kubota diesel engine + 240V electric motor
• 240V and USB power outlets on the platform
• Automatic engine RPM control
• Automatic levelling of the outriggers
• Proportional outreach monitoring system
• Electric rotation of the platform
• Jib-boom with 120-degree operating range
• Battery-powered emergency lowering system
• Lower controls with integrated service display
• Signal horn
• Outrigger beacons
• Hose to platform (air/water)
• Remote control for driving and outriggers, and
• Non-marking tracks.

Safe and efficient

The Leguan can be driven, set up and the boom operated, all from the basket. Automatic levelling means a quick set up – in fact Leguan is the fastest in the world – and new, larger footpads allow setting up on soft surfaces without using outrigger pads.

An 11.2m horizontal outreach gives a vast work radius and user-friendly joystick controls ensure smooth, proportional movement of the boom. A steel, 250kg-rated basket provides a safe, steady and durable work platform, and since the the Deadman pedal is actually a joystick trigger there’s no longer a Deadman foot pedal in the way when moving around the basket, which also has 240V power, a USB outlet, and air and water lines routed direct. All hydraulic hoses run internally so they’re fully protected, and the machine itself features a battery-powered emergency lowering system, automatic engine-idle control for easier communication and fuel savings, and the ability to track across a 25° slope

An integrated service display for quick, easy on-site diagnosis rounds out the Leguan 225 package.
