To make up the dozen there are also four 46ft A14JE articulated boom lifts with working heights of 15.8 metres and an outreach of 7.81 metres. The units are said to be good for between two and three days operation at typical usage rates before needing a recharge.

Short term hire manager Martin Masterson said: “This investment of well over €1million shows that Briggs is committed to offering our customers more sustainable options for an increasingly demanding marketplace. Our experience is that customers want to join us in this transition towards cleaner engineering solutions. These lithium powered booms will increase our customers’ productivity, reduce their carbon footprint, and virtually eliminate any downtime due to equipment breakdown.”

“They also eliminate diesel costs for the machine and reduce the requirement for storing diesel on-site, offering a significant saving to customers. We expect this will be well received with diesel costs being unstable. Most importantly, we feel there are real health and safety benefits with these machines. The lithium battery generates little or no noise when the lift is in operation, which is a major improvement compared to diesel powered equivalents.”

Business development manager Christian Stemmet added: “LGMG is the only supplier that can provide us with the lithium booms we require. They are extremely quiet, efficient, smooth, and simple to operate. They’re a real game changer.

Shane Paver of APS said: “We are really pleased that Martin and his colleagues at Briggs Equipment are excited to be the first in Europe to receive these new lithium electric boom lifts and are confident their customers will be just as impressed with them. It reflects extremely positively on the company’s proactive approach to innovation.”
