The order includes DC electric scissor lifts, electric vertical masts and its first diesel-powered rough terrain scissor lifts. Deliveries have already begun and the full line-up of machines will arrive over the coming months.

Speedy is updating and expanding its entire fleet of access equipment so that no machine at any of its depots will predate 2013.

“Skyjacks are industry-leading machines that are widely recognized as the easiest to work on, so I am delighted to welcome so many to our fleet and I’m confident they will serve our huge range of customers well,” said Speedy supply chain director Andy Connor. “With energy costs increasing on a daily basis, we want the latest products on the market, both in terms of sustainability and innovation. And these machines fit the bill.”

The majority of Speedy’s order is for enhanced 24v Skyjack DC electric scissors with working heights from 19 ft to 32 ft.

Also included in the order are 24v DC electric vertical mast lifts, offering either 12 ft or 16 ft working heights, which feature a 41cm traversing deck. Speedy also ordered some diesel-powered SJ 6832 RT scissor lifts with a working height of 32 ft, marking the first time Speedy has invested in diesel-powered access equipment.

“The diesel machines ensure we can answer every customer need and allow us to expand into larger construction job sites,” Mr Connor explained.
