Easy Lift US sales unhindered
By Euan Youdale26 May 2020
Easy Lift has seen continued sales of its tracked platforms in the US tree care industry despite the Covid-19 crisis.
The Italy-based manufacturer said, as an essential service, tree care has not stopped throughout the pandemic, proven by the sale of six units through North American distributor UP Equip across the US.
Emma Joe’s Tree Service in Iowa ordered the R210 model, The Grace Company, from Georgia and Coastal Tree Service, in California, chose the RA26, while the RA31 was selected by Oak Shade Tree Service, in Pennsylvania, McNeely Tree Service, in Massachusetts and Staunton Tree Service, in Virginia.
Easy lift has also reported sales in Russia. An R210 has now arrived in Moscow at the new Multifunctional Centre, headquarters of the Novatek company.
The platform was chosen at the end of a long tender by LLC Sherwood Premier, the centre’s developer and sold through distributor OOO MEK (Optima). The spider will be used for the maintenance of the building’s external facades as well as the glazed areas in the building’s atrium. The platform is equipped with a petrol engine for outdoor use and a lithium battery for indoor use.
In addition, the manufacturer has received orders in its home country. Castra, based Tarquinia, Viterbo, which sells building material and rents equipment, has chosen two Easy Lift spiders for its rental fleet.
The two platforms, an R160 and an R190 with diesel engines and 220V electric motors, have been delivered by Easy Lift’s dealer for the Lazio region SkyLift. Thanks to an integrated module that connects the platforms to the company’s management system and supply network, they meet the Italy’s Industry 4.0 policy and therefore fall within tax credit offerings.
