UK rental company Advanced Access Platforms has purchased 40 more Niftylift Hybrid and all-electric boom lifts, in a deal worth almost £1.5 million.
The order includes the lightweight 33ft lithium ion battery powered HR12LE which offers a maximum outreach of 6.4 metres with a unrestricted platform capacity of 200kg. It also features Niftylink telematics, a ToughCage platform and SiOPs built in secondary guarding system.
Deliveries of the new machines to the company’s central London depot, have already started. The branch is located within London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone, and is therefore stocked with environmentally friendly platforms and delivery vehicles.
Chief executive John Corcoran said: “We are focusing on providing low weight, environmentally conscious booms that still offer the best working envelopes to our customers. The low weight of Niftylift booms means that we can transport them more easily within the Ultra Low Emission Zone, while Hybrid and all-electric power allow them to work anywhere, quietly and cleanly. This investment with Niftylift shows that we’re fully committed to meeting the needs of our customer base.”
Based in Sutton, Surrey, Advanced Access Platforms now claims to have the largest fleet of the Niftylift hybrid and zero-emission electric machines in London at over 200. For more information check out the latest UK & Ireland Top 30 rental companies - fleet sustainability chart.
