The MI TOWER / EIGER ranges conform to the European standard for Mobile Access Towers, which is, BS EN 1004:2004.
A handy guide to both point and occupied space loadings for PRO IQ and our LEGACY IQ Lifts is below:
Localised pressure = (Total weight / 4) / Contact Area
|Machine designation PUSH Series||Weight of machine (kg)||Safe working load (kg)||Contact Patch 2.46cm2 Poly Tyre *Localised pressure (kg/cm2)||Contact Patch 11.54cm2 Rubber Tyre *Localised pressure (kg/cm2)|
|Eco 6 (Pop-Up)||235||240||48.27||12.35|
|Eco 8 (Pop-Up+)||343||240||59.25||15.16|
|Pro 6 iQ||310||240||N/A||14.30|
|Pro 8 iQ||350||240||N/A||15.34|
|Pro 10 iQ||370||240||N/A||15.86|
*Localised pressure (kg/cm2)
*All figures stated assume platform fully loaded (240kg) and weight distribution of 60/40 rear to front and 50/50 side to side
Occupied pressure = Total weight / (Length x Width)
|Machine designation PUSH Series||Weight of machine (kg)||Safe working load (kg)||Total area occupied (m2)||*Occupied Pressure Kg/m2|
|Eco 6 (Pop-Up)||235||240||0.52||913|
|Eco 8 (Pop-Up+)||343||240||0.62||940|
|Pro 6 iQ||310||240||0.59||932|
|Pro 8 iQ||350||240||0.59||1000|
|Pro 10 iQ||370||240||0.59||1034|
*All figures stated assume platform fully loaded (240kg)
The PRO IQ machine conforms to the European Standard for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWP) which is BS EN 280:2013+A1:2015

BS EN 1004 tower structures can be used as a free-standing structure, complete with stabilisers up to a platform height (PH) of 8.2m. After this height, the structure will require tying into a solid structure. For information on tying in fastenings please refer to Hilti.
The outer dimensions of the MI TOWER are:
Length – 1.32m Width – 0.78m Trolley Height – 1.6m
Stabiliser footprint – 2.7m (l) x 2.4m (w)
The outer dimensions of the MI TOWER+ are:
Length – 1.65m Width – 0.78m Trolley Height – 1.77m
Stabiliser footprint – 3.9m (l) x 3.1m (w)
Under the Lifting Operations, Equipment Regulations (LOLER), and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER), the PRO IQ machine needs to be inspected on a 6-monthly basis.
This Thorough Examination should be carried out by a ‘competent’ person: this could be a person who is an International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) or Competent Assessed Person (CAP). Servicing of the machine can be carried out on an annual basis.

Domestic users of the EIGER and MI TOWER ranges do not require formal training but must read and fully understand the instructions before attempting to build the tower.
The PRO IQ LIFT range of products requires users to have completed either an IPAF Push Around Vertical (PAV) or Mobile Vertical (3a, 3a+) course and hold a valid PAL card.
Two trade associations have joined forces to support a new All Party Parliamentary Group undertaking an inquiry into the numbers of serious injuries and fatalities which occur as a result of a fall from height. It is being supported by PASMA,…
