You won't get a spider lift down the width you are talking about, it needs about 2 metres either side for the legs.

If it's flat/level a scissor lift will do it but have you a IPAF license or you won't be insured?

Tower is the answer if you can get hold of a narrow one.

scissor lift is the only thing that I know of that would fit a gap that wide

thanks for your answers everyone. think it'll be the tower, although to get to roof edge wouldn't i need outriggers for stability?

Assuming you have the room to put them out, or get permission to tie the tower to the wall like sky have to when installing a satelite dish
