The order includes the new Dingli DL0607 ultra compact scissor and DL1612 high-reach narrow slab scissor lifts.

GTAccess operates from six locations across the Midlands and South Wales. Following the Dingli order, it now runs a fleet size of more than 1,500 machines, ranging in working heights from 5.8 metres up to 40.15 metres.

The DL0607 is a 5.8-metre working height machine with a 240kg safe working load including a 100kg deck extension and automatic pothole protection. Driveable at full height with the deck extended, it can be used both indoors and outdoors and is fitted as standard with direct electric drive wheel motors to maximise performance from a single charge when compared to traditional hydraulic motor drive machines.

At the other end of the scale, the DL1612 is a compact machine that will enable people working in such locations as high-bay warehouses at a more affordable price bracket than has previously been achievable, the hire company says.

The DL1612 is a 15.7-metre working height indoor scissor with a SWL of 250kg and is only 1.23 metres wide. This machine also has direct electric drive wheel motors fitted as standard as with the smaller Dingli unit.

GTAccess managing director Jonathan Till said: “These two models offer unique solutions to our customers at both the top and bottom end of our slab scissor range. We have extensively tested the Dingli product and received very positive feedback from both our customers and staff in respects of its quality and performance.”
