Wolves Stadium Gets A 'Boom'

Wolverhampton Wanderers recently hired Facelifts Haulotte H25TPX for two days to help them carry out routine maintenance on their sound system at their 28k seater Molineux Stadium.

The machine was used to allow sound engineers from T G Baker Sound to gain access to the speakers many located some 80 feet up in the four surrounding stands.

Steve Sutton Groundsman for Wolves said: "We used this machine to help us gain the height and outreach required to access the system. It wasn't just a matter of going up vertically, it was the additional horizontal access we required.

"We also needed to ensure the machine was easy to manoeuvre, because the stadium's a busy place and we have to be able to move around the pitch quickly without causing any obstructions. This machine has ticked all of those boxes."

David Jones Hire Controller at Facelifts Birmingham Depot said: "This is one of our most popular machines, and as you can see from the pictures there’s a good colour match too."
