The 2100SJ features a five section boom, with a simplified, telescope system, topped by a 9.1 metre two section telescopic articulated jib, providing a maximum working height of 65.8 metres and up to 33.5 metres of outreach. The unrestricted platform capacity is 300kg, while the maximum capacity of 454kg can be achieved at up to almost 30 metres and a working height of 60.5 metres when the telescopic jib is retracted. Maximum drive height is 64 metres. See Snorkel breaks boom record.

negotiations begin to get serious

The first unit has been ordered by a Canadian company, with units two and three reserved for Hire Safe Solutions. Gerard Jennings of Hire Safe Solutions spent half an hour or so being given an introduction to the new machines and its features and then immediately started talking about a deal for two machines, which was clearly concluded shortly thereafter.
A deal is done

Hire Safe operates from two locations - Leamington Spa and Newton-le-Willows near Haydock, and runs a fleet of around 400 units, including a good number of big heavy duty scissor lifts, and big booms.

Don Ahern should be hiding his face in shame, due to the way he is trying to scam Tanfield shareholders.
