Korea-based Prince Lift is refreshing its Skyjack rental fleet following a trial purchase at the end of 2016.
The Refresh program, provided by Skyjack Manufacturing Southwest in Glendale, Arizona, is an alternative option for rental companies to update their fleet while minimising their investment. Through the program, Skyjack updates and paints the MEWPs to ensure they not only look new but also work well. It includes replacing machine components such as tyres, control box case, batteries, as well as resetting systems and pressures to original factory specifications.
“Refreshing our existing fleet serves greatly to manage our capital investment without compromising the quality and condition of the products we offer to our customers,” said Wooteak Lim, president of Prince Lift, which is based in Yongin. “The trial experience produced very positive results, which increases the rental value of our fleet. At the same time, we are pleased to make further investments in new Skyjack machines.”
Prince Lift is expected to deploy its fleet of Skyjack equipment to help with the major investment in construction of semiconductor factories in Korea.
Established in 2013, the Korean rental company currently owns a fleet of 1000 scissor and boom lifts. The initial order of refreshed machines last year led to another purchase agreement for dozens of new machines and refreshed units in February.
The refreshed units also come with a six month parts and labour warranty. Models eligible for the program include: SJIII 3215/19, SJIII 3220/26 and SJIII 4620/26/32 electric scissor lifts.
