Danish rental company Steiness Liftcenter has taken delivery of the first two 26ft lithium-ion powered Snorkel SL26RTE Speed Levels in the country. The new machine was sold and delivered by Snorkel distributor HK Lift.
Based on the regular diesel powered Snorkel Speed Levels, the SL26RTE offers an eight metre working height, a 680kg platform capacity and a platform length of 4.6 metres with a 910mm rollout deck extension. The battery electric units are powered with a new generation lithium-ion battery pack which provides a full day work cycle and rapid recharging with minimal maintenance.
Steiness Liftcenter owner, Poul Steiness, said: “Zero emission models are in high demand in the Danish market, and it was important for us to be the first in Denmark to stock the lithium powered Speed Level. We have a longstanding relationship with Karsten Haahr at KH Lift, and appreciate their help in making us the first to the Danish market with these innovative lifts, and one of the first in Scandinavia.”
Henrik Skibsted, Snorkel territory manager for Scandinavia and the Baltics, added: “The Speed Level is an innovative design that has stood the test of time, so to now be able to offer its unique capabilities and impressive performance with the added benefit of zero emissions is a fantastic offering for our customer base in this territory. We look forward to seeing this technology at work on jobsites all around Denmark in the near future.”
Based at its newly built premises in Taastrup, near Copenhagen, Steiness Liftcenter has a fleet of more than 450 aerial work platforms, telehandlers and glass lifters and operates throughout Denmark and southern Sweden.
