Australian rental company Preston Hire has taken delivery of four 41ft Platform Basket RR14 EVO3 articulated rail mounted boom lifts, the first in Australia.
The RR14 EVO3 provides an outreach of 9.3 metres and 160kg unrestricted platform capacity, while five metres outreach is possible with the full 400kg capacity. Able to work on wheels or on tracks, the booms feature automatic self levelling of the superstructure, allowing them to work on banked and inclined tracks or out of level ground conditions. The machine was delivered by Platform Basket’s distributor Monitor Lifts.
Established over 40 years ago, Preston Hire is based in Rydalmere, New South Wales with six more depots around the country. The company’s fleet consists of boom lifts, scissor lifts and spider lifts, as well as All Terrain cranes, spider cranes and mini crawler cranes.
