Australian rental company Height 4 Hire is celebrating the delivery of its 500th machine with a custom painted pink 40ft Haulotte Compact 14 scissor lift, which it will use to raise funds for breast cancer charity McGrath Foundation.
The Compact 14, or 'Pinkie' as it has been named, has an overall width of 1.2 metres, an overall length of 2.45 metres and weighs 3,175kg. It offers a maximum working height of 13.8 metres with a 350kg platform capacity.
The new scissor lift was supplied by Haulotte in support of McGrath's mission to raise money to place specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurses wherever they are needed. As a corporate partner, Height 4 Hire will be contributing 20 percent of the rentals from the machine to the McGrath Foundation and hope to reach a total of A$15,000 by October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Height 4 Hire owner Ken Baker said: “We wanted to celebrate our milestone of 500 machines with something special and also wanted to contribute back to the community that support us. A few of us at Height 4 Hire have been personally affected by cancer recently, so we are looking for any way to help raise funds towards awareness or services to help those that are suffering from cancer.”
Haulotte Australia general manager Keith Clarke added: “The Compact 14 is light, which reduces transport costs and has a compact design making it great for high storage facilities or high ceilings. We are proud to help contribute to this fundraising effort for the McGrath Foundation and are happy to support our customers in anyway.”
McGrath Foundation ambassador and director Tracy Bevan said: “We are proud to have funded 119 McGrath Breast Care Nurses working nationally who, together, have supported more than 60,000 families going through breast cancer. Efforts like this are truly helping us to make a difference - we couldn’t do it without you.”
