We’ve put together an infographic featuring different MEWPs, showcasing some of the types of vehicle available from our fleet. It’s a good introduction to the main features of aerial platforms and common types of MEWP.
The infographic is a quick reference guide for the construction industry to learn what to look for in a mobile elevating work platform.
Types of MEWP for Working At Height
MEWP Definition: A MEWP or M.E.W.P. is a Mobile Elevating Work Platform. MEWPs are also known as:
Scissor Lift Definition:
Cherry Picker Definition:
PAV Push Around Vertical Definition:
Choosing the right MEWP to meet your requirements for these common attributes will let you find the right machine for the job:
Height – how high do you need to go?
Outreach – how far do you need to reach?
Load Capacity – how much weight do you need to lift?
Terrain – some MEWPs are 4×4 and can operate well on rougher terrain
Platform Rotation – to manoeuvre the platform at height
Turning Radius – to operate the machine in a tight space
Platform Height – will the MEWP fit through the door or entrance to the work area?
Platform Weight – can the ground/work surface bear the weight of the MEWP?
