Owners Andy and Joanne Macartney, said: “These UK built towable booms are ideal for our customers, many of whom are completing projects on evenings and weekends, and can simply visit our location and take the equipment with them to get the job done, without worrying about deliveries and collections. We have been impressed by the quality of Snorkel’s towable booms, and are pleased to have them in our fleet. We would like to thank Scott for his assistance with this order.”

Andrew Fishburn, managing director for Snorkel UK, added: “We are delighted to have delivered our first units to Instant Tool & Plant Hire, towable products are a great fit for their business model, and I am confident that these lifts will become a big hit with both their residential and commercial customers.”
