Australian access equipment rental firm Ace Tower recently completed work on the soon-to-open Melbourne Star observation wheel.

The work was carried out using the company's Barin AP 70/33 J2 aerial platform. Mounted on a five-axle DAF truck chassis, the AP70/33 J2 can reach a maximum height of 70 m overhead and 33 m lateral outreach.

Melbourne’s giant observation wheel is taking shape against the city’s skyline. The 120 m wheel, which has seven spokes, representing the seven-pointed star of the Australian flag, is due to open in early 2014.
