LTS adds Snorkel Speed Level to fleet
By Sarah Ann McCay10 June 2014
LTS Powered Access Ltd has taken delivery of two new Snorkel Speed Level lifts and already has the units on-hire working on the Limehouse Link tunnel, running under London Docklands.
The London-based rental firm, which specialises in booms and scissor lifts, bought the two SL30SL lifts after seeing the unit at ConExpo in March. According to Paul Fairhall, director at LTS Powered Access, the firm were looking for a high-capacity lift with a large deck that offered greater flexibility than a standard heavy duty rough terrain scissor lift, for use in tunnel maintenance work in the centre of London.
The Snorkel SL30SL has an 11 m working height and a lift capacity of 590 kg, along with a three-mode drive system and the ability to self-level when working on slopes or mounted on kerbs. It can also be driven at full height on compound slopes, maximizing productivity.
The lifts are now on hire with Road Management Services (A13) Plc whch provide maintenance and support services for the A13 highway, which runs directly through central London and onwards into the county of Essex.
LTS Powered Access is the associate company to London Tower Service, which has been providing scaffold access platforms for commercial and industrial projects across southeast England since 1988.
