Oil&Steels for UK

UK sales and rental company Hird has taken delivery of its first Oil&Steel truck mounted platforms after being appointed as UK distributor last year – see: New UK and Ireland distributor for O&S.

The company took delivery of a 20 metre Snake 2010H Plus and a 19.9 metre Scorpion 2013 as it looks to reintroduce the Oil&Steel brand back into the UK after a number of years without an appointed dealer. Mounted on a 3.5 tonne Iveco chassis, the Snake 2010 provides an outreach of 10.2 metres and has a maximum platform capacity of 200kg. The Scorpion 2013 has also been mounted on an 3.5 tonne Iveco and provides a maximum outreach of 12.5 metres with a platform capacity of 80kg, or 8.5 metres of outreach with its maximum 250kg capacity.

The company says it sees a growing demand for truck mount platforms due to the 5G roll out, the management of ash dieback, and property managers/developers seeking cost effective methods of carrying out maintenance and construction.
Hird is reintroducing the Oil&Steel brand in the UK

Hird managing director Phil Hird, said: “Oil&Steel truck mounted platforms are designed to be easy to use, with excellent safety features and smart controls that make working at height easier and faster. We're confident our Oil&Steel platforms will do very well in the UK market. There is strong demand for a vehicle that can provide working at height at multiple locations in one shift."

Based in Hull, with additional locations in Doncaster, Redhill Surrey and Halesowen, Hird is also the dealer for Valla pick & carry cranes and Winlet glazing robots. It also has a rental fleet of more than 145 spider and pick & carry cranes, as well as a fleet of access platforms.
