Who Uses Outdoors Lifting Equipment?

A wide range of industries can make use of lifting equipment, but the most obvious that require outdoors lifting equipment are those involved in construction, landscaping, arboriculture and agriculture. Chain slings and hoists are vital for landscaping businesses who load and unload heavy objects – such as chunks of trees or rocks – on a daily basis.

Lifting equipment is used for outdoor occasions such as festivals, sporting events or even weddings. Quite often lighting or speaker systems have to be installed into high up places which will require the help of proper outdoors lifting equipment. When it comes to removing these installations, the equipment will be necessary again and other lifting equipment will help load the objects into transportation so they can be taken off-site.

Types of Equipment Used for Outdoor Lifting

As well as gantries, grabs and lifting slings, you may well require access equipment including mobile access platforms and steps or ladders. With the correct combination of equipment, you can reach anywhere and efficiently lift your load.
