In line with its plans to expand, UK-based powered access rental specialist Anglia Access Platforms has added two new Genie platforms to its fleet.
The Z62/40 articulating boom lift and G5-5390 RT scissor lift were delivered by authorised Genie distributor Access Platform Sales (APS).
The diesel-powered GS-5390 scissor lift has a maximum working height of 18.87m, a double extension deck providing 7m of working space and a lifting capacity of 680kg. With up to 50% gradeability, rough terrain tyres and proportional lift and drive, the scissor lift is also designed to cope with uneven ground.
The Z-62/40 boom lift, which is also diesel powered, has a maximum working height of 20.87m and a horizontal outreach of 12.42m.
The director of Anglia Access Platforms, Mark Pratt, said, “We work with a lot of cladding installers and the Genie GS-5390 scissor is very much one of their go-to platforms. It’s very stable, has a good platform size and can sit right up against a building so installation operatives can work safely and quickly.”
APS Major Accounts Manager Linda Betts said, “A major benefit of Genie platforms is their residual value. After 10 years of excellent service, hire companies like Mark’s can get good prices for their Genie scissors and booms.”
