Roof repair on a building in central London
The Jekko SPK60 has a number of advantages over its competitors,” explains Russ Taylor, managing director of JT Cranes. “It is extremely well designed in terms of operator comfort; it has a much higher lifting capacity than the others, both in Pick&Carry mode and static mode; its numerous accessories adapt easily to the various handling solutions; it has the unique ability to be able to work with an electric motor and this is very useful in enclosed spaces, and also in areas where emission restrictions are in place.” These and other advantages have led the tracked picker version of the SPK60 to be used to repair a roof next to Buckingham Palace. “The location represented a real challenge, which the SPK60 was able to overcome: the space was limited and there was a need not to make too much noise. The limited weight of this machine, its compact size and above all its excellent lifting capacity, made it an excellent choice for this type of work.
