Nationwide rejuvenates fleet with 1100 new scissor lifts
Nearly 1,100 brand new Skyjack scissor lifts have begun entering the Nationwide Platforms fleet.
The equipment spans five different models, including about 650 of the 3219 scissors, which provide access to heights up to nearly 8m.
A further 200 of the 4632 machines will be entering the fleet, along with more than 170 of the 3226 models.
This equipment is in addition to more than 50 of the 6826RT and 6832 models that have entered the fleet since the spring. These scissor lifts provide access to heights of about 10m and 12m respectively and can be driven at full height with their roll-out decks fully extended.
Nationwide Platforms fleet replenishment programme, which will see a total of nearly 1,700 new units enter the fleet, will be completed this autumn.
Nationwide said that all of the machines delivered in 2012 have been specified to customer requirements with features including additional joystick protection and emission-compliant Kubota diesel engines.
Across the UK, the business currently has more than 5,500 scissor lifts available for hire, in addition to more than 1,100 low level access platforms.
