UK rental company Premier Platforms has taken delivery of the first 66ft Dingli BA22ERT electric articulated boom lift to arrive in the country.
The BA22ERT offers a working height of 22.21 metres, an outreach of 12.72 metres at an up & over height of eight metres with a 230kg platform capacity. Features include four wheel drive and steer, 30 percent gradeability, 360 continuous slew, foam filled non-marking tyres, 130 degrees of jib articulation and drive speeds of up to 6.1kph.
Weighing just over 10 tonnes, the BA22ERT has an overall width of 2.29 metres, an overall travel length of 9.55 metres and a height of 2.49 metres. Power comes from a 48 volt system made up of two 24 volt, 375Ah batteries.
The BA22ERT was ordered with two Dingli scissor lifts - an 66ft electric JCPT 2212DC and 66ft diesel JCPT 2223RTB - and a 62ft Nifylift HR21 boom lift, which make up part of a £1.3 million investment in new equipment in 2021.
Managing director, Leigh Farmer, said: "The machine quality from Dingli is very impressive which is why we have invested and will continue to invest in these machines. Being the first company in the UK to buy the 22 metre all electric articulated boom shows our commitment to meeting the changing demands of the environment and the requirement of our customers. This is also why we have one of the largest LPG scissor fleets in the UK."
Established in 2010, Premier Platforms is based in Cannock, Staffordshire, with a second depot in Thirsk, and runs a fleet of around 450 aerial lifts including boom lifts, scissor lifts, trailer lifts, mast booms and truck mounted platforms. It also has a training division and was one of the first to offer IPAF’s virtual PAL+ course - see: Premier to offer VR Pal+.
