L125 retires as Leguan introduces new models
Leguan Lifts has delivered its last L125 model as the company focuses on new models.
The L125 model series has been serving the market for three decades but Leguan has decided that the time has come for it to make room for a modern fleet of new generation spider lifts. In recent years, Leguan Lifts has introduced new spider lift models with increased focus on user-friendly and modern features and the success of these new products has catapulted Leguan Lifts into an unprecedented growth phase. More new products are planned for launch over the next few years.
Leguan Lifts has designed and manufactured lightweight self-propelled access platforms for almost 30 years. The first spider lift type access platform equipped with four-wheel-drive chassis was launched at 1994 and was well received in many markets including Germany and Norway. An early upgrade was the hydraulic telescopic boom, which kickstarted sales outside Europe to countries such as USA and Australia. The first spider lifts were known under names such as Leguan plus and Leguan 110.
Around the year 2000, the height of the access platform was raised from 11 to 12.5m and the product was named Leguan 125, as the lift is still known today. This was the first Leguan also available with a tracked chassis. In USA, this model was branded as Falcon 125. The sales of the L125 surpassed 1000 units before 2011, when the next major upgrade known as the M1 version was introduced. Hundreds of this model version were produced until 2018, when the last M2 upgrade was made.
L125 model series was known particularly for its offroad capabilities and reliable technology. Finally, more than 1500 units were sold, most of which to export markets. It has played an important role with electric utility companies maintaining the electric network around the Australian outback. The Leguan spider lifts have been built for operations in all conditions since the start – for efficient access even on difficult job sites where there is snow or mud.
Leguan Lifts congratulates the customer of the last L125 delivered from the factory, knowing that the Leguan will serve the user for the decades to come.
