3. Am I working inside or outside?

When working inside you may wish to consider an electrically powered machine, (especially in more confined spaces). You will need to measure any doors that the machine will go through.

5. How much weight can I carry?

The SWL or Safe Working Load is the total weight that the machine cage can safely carry. The majority of our machines carry a minimum 200kg which allows for two men with average person weigh of 85kg (13 stone) and 30kg of equipment/tools. The SWL should never be exceeded.
