A jlg toucan junior 8 self-propelled personnel lift is being used for internal maintenance work at Alexandra Palace, London. The machine was sold by JLG to rental company Rapid Platforms this spring and was then sold on to Alexandra Palace.
It is being used at the world-famous events and exhibitions complex for essential internal maintenance work such as repairs to internal lights and the changing of light bulbs and fluorescent tubes. The machine is well-suited for such work because it can pass through standard doorways, is operated by one person and can be driven at full height, allowing efficient usage of personnel time. In addition to this, its low stow height, makes it easy to store and to fit under low ceilings and the sealed gel batteries make for easy maintenance.
The Toucan Junior 8 specifications include a working height of 8m, a stowed height of 1,79m, width of 0,78m, length of 1,5m, and a work platform capacity of 120kg.
