At the recent meeting of the Accrediting Bodies Association for Workplace Transport (ABA) much discussion took place over the categorisation of the Crown Wave and other similar machines such as Bravi Platforms’ spin-go and sprint machines .
The machines are used in a wide variety of settings and for multiple purposes. The machines have not been designed to meet MEWP regulations however they are used as a working platform to perform functions such as order picking and changing lightbulbs, they are also able to be driven elevated and boom vertically; 3A is therefore the most appropriate category for this machine type given its operational characteristics and implementation. All ABA members therefore agreed that the ABA grouping for these machines would be 3A.
We hope this clears up the previous confusion regarding what category the Crown Wave etc. fell into.
If you are unclear about what machines fall into which grouping at any time please do not hesitate to contact your accrediting body or the ABA at any time, we are here to help.
