Netherlands-based rental company Boels Rental has placed an order with Skyjack for 615 scissor lifts, spanning Skyjack's electric and rough terrain models.

The order, which follows the delivery last year of 210 Skyjack 3219 electric scissors, is Skyjack's largest ever from Boels.

Boels' senior buyer, Ton Brockbernd, said; "Skyjack's reliable product offering is ideally suited to the needs of our customers. We went for Skyjack because it is a quality product, that proved itself through the years in this market.

"And also because it is a robust, reliable machine that is easy to maintain, which is very important in rental. We purchased 210 [of the] 3219s for our rental fleet last year and the equipment to date has lived up to its solid, reliable reputation and low life cycle costs."

Boels has 250 depots in eight countries in Europe and is one of Europe's largest general equipment rental companies.

The order includes SJIII 3220 and SJIII 3226 models and the SJ 6826RT and SJ6832RT rough terrain scissors.

Skyjack's managing director in Europe, Charlie Patterson, said he was delighted with the order; "We are very proud of our products and pleased to be recognised for our
strengths as a supplier of solid reliable equipment built for the rental market".
