SMX 225


Glasgow based Industrial Access Systems has ordered the new MULTITEL SMX225. The new platform was only launched at BAUMA in April 2010, and first deliveries are due in September 2010.

The new SMX225 is based on the highly succesful MULTITEL MX225 truck mounted platform. It is identical from the slew ring upwards to the truck mount. As a spider/crawler platform the MULTITEL SMX225 is quite unique. It is between 400kg and 600kg less in tranmsit weight than all the other 22 or 23m spiders currently available. This is extremely important in that it can fundamentally change the transport requirements.

The new MULTITEL SMX 225 can be transported by a standard trailer towed by almost any 4x4. Weighing only 2500kg it falls well within the weight limits of standard trailers and towing vehicles. Many 22m or 23m spiders weigh close to or exceed 3tons, some even over 3200kg. As such these need special trailers, special towing vehicles or must be transported using a beaver tail truck or similar.

The MULTITEL SMX 225 offers a full 22.5 meters of working height and up to 10.25 metres of working outreach with a unique up and over geometry.


Following the launch of its new version of the MX270 at SAIE in Bologna in October 2010, Winners Access have taken delivery of the first MX270EX supplied in the UK.

The MULTITEL MX270EX has in line outrigger jacking as well as the option to extend the "H" frame rear outriggers for additional outreach. In transit, the MULTITEL MX270 mounted on the Mitsubishi Canter Euro5 chassis is narrower than many competitors 20 metre models with "A" frame jacking. Likewise even with the outriggers extended the MULTITEL MX270EX is no wider than these 20m models.

With 90 degree each way cage rotation, the MULTITEL MX270EX is ideal for working in confined spaces.

Platform Hire Ltd take First New Multitel MX250

Droitwich based Platform Hire Limited has taken delivery of the first MULTITEL MX250 supplied into the UK. This is to spearhead a new truck mount division for Platform Hire.

The Multitel MX250 was launched at APEX in 2012 and is a market leader in the UK in terms of the 25m working height and up to 12.2m of working outrteach from a platform mounted on a 3.5t GVW Nissan Cabstar.

Dave Williams, MD of Platform Hire Ltd., said "the decision to order the MX250 was a no brainer, as the working height of over 25m and up and over clearance of 12m is just what our business needed to be able to offer our customers the flexibility of a larger boom whilst being able to drive the vehicle without having a 7.5t driving license".

In order to achieve this level of performance on a 3.5t chassis, MULTITEL have designed an all aluminium sub-frame and a new outreach control system for the MX250. With an all in-line jacking envelope, and single or double sided "H" frame jacking at the rear, the MX250 is ideal for inner city working or situations where space is restricted.

Mr Williams added "we also took the option of automatic self-levelling outriggers to make it easier for the self-drive market".


The most popular Multitel platform sold in the UK the Multitel MJ 201 has been a great succes not only in the UK but throughout Europe. In the UK the platform has been purchased by some of the leading truck mount operators as well as by a number of smaller rental companies and end users. Companies such as Nationwide Platforms, Smart Platform Rental, Orion Access, Wilson Access/AFI, Rapid Platforms, Clements Plant and Tool Hire, are amongst the truck mounted rental companies currently operating this model in their fleets. The versatilty of the MJ 201 is one of its main attributes. With a telescopic fly jib it is one of the very few platforms mounted on a 3.5 ton chassis cab that has a below ground capabilty. The telescopic fly jib also means the MJ 201 has a much greater up and over capabilty than a conventional telescopic boom or telescopic boom with fixed fly jib. With up to 12.6m of working outreach and 90 degree each way cage rotation the MJ 201 has shown itself capable of carrying out a wide range of jobs is extemely different working environments.

The MJ 226 is a larger version in the Multitel MJ range and still capable of mounting on a 3.5 ton chassis cab this model also is offereed on th Mitsubish 4 by 4 chassis cab where it has permanently in line outrigger.
