Riwal makes first sale of 28m electric boom lift

12 May 16 Aerial work platform and telehandler specialist Riwal has sold its first fully electric 28m boom lift.

The machine was bought  by Swiss rental company Airnace, which needed a quiet unit that could work both inside and outside, including carrying out maintenance of bridges and operating in city centres.

Riwal offered the JLG-860SJ, which has been converted from diesel to a full electric boom lift by Riwal’s technical team. The machine was already available to customers using Riwal’s rental fleet but it is the first time that Riwal has sold a fully electric 28m.

The machine has a noise level below 70dBA.

Airnace general manager Olivier Mettan said: “This machine is a great solution for us to work in industrial areas, power plants and tunnels without needing any particulate filters. Thanks to the reduced noise level and zero emissions, we can now easily meet local restrictions. In addition we experienced a great cooperation with Riwal who followed through on their timely delivery promise and provided a great working machine.”
