Imer’s new Easy Up 5


Imer Group’s stand line-up included the new Easy Up 5 push-around battery operated scissor lift. Providing a maximum working height of 5.2m, this is the larger of two similar style 200kg platforms produced by Imer Group company, Iteco. These are entry-level


models from the Group’s newly formed access division. The Easy Up 5 weighs only 390kg and its narrow width of 760mm means it can be moved through a standard doorway. The unit comes complete with forklift slots, a digital inclinometer, a load sensor and automatic brakes on the rear castors that are applied when the platform starts to rise. A self-propelled version is planned.

Zarges (UK) was the winning finalist in the Innovation Zone at the Show, with its new Teletower receiving the most votes from hirers visiting the Zone. Described as a telescopic mobile access tower, it can be erected by one person in less than three minutes and comprises only two parts, namely the extending scaffold and the folding platform. It offers seven platform heights, from 0.33 to 2m in 25cm increments, and can be used as a podium unit. The design incorporates support braces and integral advanced guardrails, and the


stabiliser legs have a choice of five settings and lockable castors. The platform measures 1.4m by 0.7m and has a climb-through hatch. Weighing 55kg, the Teletower is available in aluminium and grp, and when folded it can be transported in the back of an estate car or van. In their comments when selecting the 13 Zone finalists, the judges stated that


the Teletower’s ease of operation would appeal to users across many market segments, and that hirers would appreciate the fact that there was minimal risk of losing components. On its stand at the Show, Zarges gave regular demonstrations of erecting and lowering the product, which invariably drew an attentive crowd.

BGG highlights Sync Lock system


Visitors entering the Show through the main north entrance of the Ricoh Arena could not fail to see the big 500kVA prime power Bruno generator displayed there by UK dealer, BBG. Purchased by MEMS Power Generation for its hire fleet, this Italian machine incorporates a DSE7510 load share module produced by electronic control systems specialist, Deep Sea. At the Show, Deep Sea Technical Support Engineer, Mark Graham, demonstrated the new remote Sync Lock Controller which connects to the DSE7510 to facilitate manual connection and disconnection of the generator from the mains or utility supply. Providing forward and backward phase synchronising, the generator allows fuses to be safely pulled at zero phase.


BGG also showed the new Bruno Site Light 908F that has a bunded base frame with fork pockets. This site light has a Perkins engine and an 8kW alternator to power four 1000W metal halide lamps on a seven-section vertical mast that extends to 9m.

Avant shows larger Gyru-Star


Prominent on the Avant Tecno stand was the new Gyru-Star 4-100 screening bucket complete with its distinctive yellow ‘stars’. Finished by its manufacturer, Wheatway Solutions (www.wheatway.com), literally just before the Show, this bucket is bigger than the original 3-80 has a new drive system. The 0.5m3


capacity 4-100 was displayed fitted to a


28hp 630 Avant compact wheel loader. This bucket has four rows of yellow coloured polyurethane stars that are rotated ‘uphill’ so that material rolls through the bucket rather than being chopped up. This means that any roots and vegetation are retained in the bucket. Whilst the first 4-100 had its rotors driven by a chain


from the hydraulic motor, the latest version has a lower-maintenance Gates carbon belt. The attachment provides a screening area of 0.7m2


whilst the smaller


3-80, which is suitable for use on the 20hp Avant 420, has a screening area of 0.45m2
