Powered access hire specialist JMS has taken delivery of 30 new Niftylift booms.
The investment of more than £1.1million ($1.4 million) reflects the growing popularity in the UK of compact, lightweight powered access machines, said JMS managing director Mark Jackson. “These machines are proving to be a highly flexible and sustainable way to work at height, which is why we see demand for them growing significantly.”
The investment has added to the already sizable number of Niftylift machines in the JMS hire fleet. Additional booms bought include the 120T, HR12N, HR12 4X4, HR15N, HR17N, HR17 4X4, HR21 4X4, and HR28 4X4 – with working heights ranging from 12.2m -28m.
Niftylift’s hybrid technology allows its booms to be operated with low-emission combined diesel and electric power or zero-emission electric-only power. Using one machine indoors and outdoors to the same standard is a key sustainability advantage, says Jackson.
“Customers increasingly want sustainable, efficient and flexible powered access hire options…We are continually growing and renewing our hire fleet and to invest in a wide spectrum of machines and brands, so we’re a one-stop shop for powered access users.”
