Loxam, in the Netherlands, is adding to its low level access fleet with a range of units from Power Towers.
The latest purchase agreement with Power Towers, part of JLG Industries, was signed at the International Bouwbeurs in Utrecht earlier this month. “Loxam wants to be at the forefront in the access equipment rental business,” said Marc Haverschmidt, general manager Loxam Nederland. “Power Towers is a valuable partner who manufactures reliable low-level access products that meet the need for our customers to replace more traditional means of access with safer solutions that add to their bottom line.”
Danny Wesselius, fleet manager of Loxam Nederland added, “With the addition of the Power Towers product to our fleet, we fulfill a need from our customers for a more diversified product offering. Jobs need to be completed at an increasingly rapid pace and these products fill the gap when our customers seek an alternative solution for their work at height.”
Loxam invested in the Pecolift, which is equipped with a patented stored power system and requires no batteries or oil. It offers a working height of 3.5m and a footprint less than 1m x 70cm and is suited to finishing work in construction and facility management. Additionally, a number of Nano SP’s were purchased. The self-propelled 4.5m working height MEWP has small working footprint and a large platform size, at 1.5m x 0.73m, when the deck is extended. Lastly, the Power Tower, a heavy duty self-propelled scaffold tower will also be delivered. Offering a working height of 5.1m and a safe working load of 250kgs, its is designed to be a replacement for more traditional means of access.
“Across the globe we see an increased readiness for low level access,” commented Jonathan Dawson, managing director at Power Towers. “Our products deliver a positive contribution on jobsites, particularly in the area of worksite safety and efficiency. We are extremely pleased with this significant fleet extension from Loxam in the Netherlands.”
