The three new Omme Lift tracked platforms for Higher Access.

UK based tracked platform rental specialist Higher Access has taken delivery of three new track mounted Omme telescopic spider lifts with working heights of more than 30m.

All lifts are diesel and battery powered: when operating on single phase AC Omme says that an extension cord to the mains can create hazardous situations and is usually never long enough. If it is long enough it is many times too long to carry a sufficient voltage level to make the lift travel or work satisfactorily.

High Access has bought the first 37m working height 3700RBDJ Omme Lift in the UK together with two 31m 3150 RBDJs from UK distributor Access Platform Sales. Higher Access says that the new Omme Lifts are part of its strategy to expand its share of the 30m plus market.

Operations director Peter Ashburner said, "Our previous experience of the 2200 and 2600 Omme Lifts, the positive customer feedback and the compactness of these units made the decision to purchase the 3700 and 3150's an easy one. We are very happy with the Omme brand. The machines are available with a good choice of options and are very reliable. We opted for upgraded drive motors for increased travel speed, tri fuel power, wireless remote control, 400 Ah battery capacity, auto-levelling and non-marking tracks".
