Construction industry powered access equipment frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of cherry pickers on a construction site?

Cherry pickers and other MEWPs are a great alternative to using ladders of scaffolding on a construction site. A cherry picker lifts workers up in a basket which provides a safe, secure area for them to stand and be lifted up in.

They are a great versatile, effective piece of machinery that allows construction workers to work more efficiently due to the wide range of height and positions they can access easily and safely.

Cherry pickers and other MEWPs can be used straight away and don’t require any set-up, saving time and money.

What can MEWPs be used for on a construction site?

MEWPs are versatile when used in construction as they help get people, tools, materials and equipment to height quickly and safely. There are used for a number of things in the construction industry, for example:

  • Installing glass, windows, blinds and doors.
  • Completing maintenance and repairs.
  • Roofing.
  • Installing signs and other building attachments.
  • Installing lighting and sound equipment.
  • Painting inside and outside buildings.
