Growing to new heights in 2016!2016 has seen us enhance our powered access hire fleet with a significant investment in Genie boom lifts, Genie scissor lifts and Niftylift cherry pickers.The 12 metre Nifty HR12 Height Rider’s were the first to arrive These self propelled hybrid diesel/electric cherry picker platforms have a 12.2m (40ft) working height with a 6.1m (20ft) working outreach running on a narrow1.5m wide chassis they are ideal for use on sites with tight access. Shortly after the arrival of the Nifty Height Rider’s we purchased some Genie Z45/25 J RT boom lifts. The Genie Z45/25J RT’s have a 16m (45ft) working height with a 7.5m (24ft) working outreach designed for the toughest of site conditions. The machine has great lifting versatility with a lift capacity of up to 227 kg (500 lb).Up and over positioning comes as standard fitment, the Z45/25 J RT’s also feature a 1.52 m (5 ft) jib boom for better positioning and smooth control.
A tight turning radius and zero tail swing allow unmatched manoeuvrability in confined work areas allowing you to get the job done faster and more efficiently with a powerful combination of speed and gradeability. Genie’s full-time positive drive traction system and active oscillating axle work together based on ground conditions to help keep the machine moving without losing traction on rough terrain. The powered turret rotation lets you move the boom exactly where you need it with a self-levelling platform feature which offers the same platform level through the entire range of motion. To fulfil our customers powered access needs we have also purchased some Genie GS2632 electric scissor lifts.
The Genie GS2632 self propelled scissor lifts are a stable, reliable and easy to operate electric driven lift with a built-in platform extension. They have a working height of 9.8m (32ft) with a narrow chassis width of just 81cm (2ft 8in) meaning that they will easily pass through standard single or double doors. Electric self-propelled scissors are ideal for indoor use with 2 operators onboard. Low-emission electric scissors deliver a quiet, convenient method for operation in sound-sensitive environments like office buildings, shopping malls, hotels, schools and more.The machines feature front-wheel drive and a zero inside turning radius for excellent manoeuvrability in tight spaces like congested construction sites, elevators and narrow aisles.
