GTAccess Assist in Repair of Historic Windmill


27 January 2015

GTAccess helped to repair a 19th century windmill using a Skyjack telescopic boom at the Avoncroft Museum in Worcestershire, UK.

The Skyjack SJ66T spent a week on site, working on uneven terrain and carefully manoeuvring around historic buildings, to repair the 200-year-old, fully operational windmill.

Tom Long, Depot Manager of GTAccess’ local Bromsgrove depot, explains that this is an ongoing relationship between GTAccess and Avoncroft Museum. “The SJ66T was chosen to give the team the flexibility and manoeuvrability they needed,” he says. “We look forward to helping Avoncroft on future projects using machines from our fleet.”
