ABILENE, TEXAS, USA, Sept. 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Blade Platforms is a true market leader in boom lift and spider lift rentals.

In the T&D (transmission and distribution) industry, the New River Electric Corporation recently completed work on a crossing of the Ohio River between Ohio and West Virginia for AEP (American Electric Power). In this project, several tasks were performed on the structure at 255 feet using Blade Platforms aerial work machines. This work was carried out by linemen in the basket of blade rigs with helicopter support.

The transmission superintendent on site praised the speed and efficiency of the 295-foot Ruthmann. Installation time with Blade machines was much faster compared to other equipment available and no test weight flights are required with this 295ft Blade Platforms truck. The articulation of the man basket and the size of this basket to accommodate several people and tools is one of the many advantages of partnering with BladePlatforms.com. The unit was operated on site by certified technicians accompanied by NREC linemen for the ride. This Operated Rental also enabled NREC to avoid certain additional insurance costs. The 295-foot machine is also available for bare rental, with the first week of on-site instruction conducted by Blade-certified trainers.

Independent site safety personnel have also rated the quality and safe operation of this high rise lifting equipment. They talked about the basket machine’s safer process compared to typical cranes or jib-mounted baskets. The blade machine is certified to do this job with plenty of safety and operational tools to ensure a safe working environment.
