The UK football club used the equipment to carry out several changes to its stadium, including updating the floodlights ahead of the 2019/2020 Championship season.

The 28m Niftylift HR28D, which has a width of 2.49m and length of 9.28m, also has a turning radius of 5.63m and 180° cage rotation.

Peter Kemp, Stadium Manager, Luton Town Football Club, said, “The whole Club worked hard getting the stadium and team ready for kick off into the Championship.

“We had to make several updates to the club and the Niftylift cherry picker makes accessing those hard to reach area’s in the corners of the stadium to update the floodlights so much easier.”

Steve Simmons, Managing Director at Star Platforms, said, “As fans ourselves, we are looking forward to this next season in the Championship and only too happy to help with powered access when the Club need it.”
