By Euan Youdale03 July 2020

A Spider 18.90 Pro, manufactured by Platform Basket, is at work at the Phanteon, an historic architectural site in the centre of Rome. According to Platform Basket it is one of the best-preserved ancient Roman buildings in existence.

The manufacturer’s customer, rental company CGT Adilizia, sent in the pictures of the 17.6m working height Spider 18.90 Pro, which is an articulated boom with fly jib for greater versatility. The manufacturer said the light weight of the machine and easy transportability made it suitable for this type of work, along with its weight (2.35 tonnes) to horizontal outreach (9.2m) ratio.
