Painting contractor Bagnalls turned to AFI-Uplift powered access machines to carry out the job of painting 80m of footbridge spanning a river and a three lane road before connecting to the Meadowhall Shopping Centre at
The Upright SB85J and Genie S125 straight booms have outreaches of 23.40 and 24.40m respectively, and working heights of 28.00 and 40.10m. AFI also supplied a JLG 450AJ articulating boom, which has a working height of 15.72m.
Bagnalls branch manager, Richard Britten, said: "The machines gave us the required outreach to span the River Don from each side and they provided sufficient working height to access the footbridge's tower and suspension lines safely."
