Power Towers Nano lift

A-Plant has taken delivery of more than 300 powered access and low level access machines from Power Towers and Niftylift, valued at around UK£2 million.

The bulk of the order was 284 units from Power Towers, mainly comprising of Nano and the Pecolift models. The push-around Nano offers a working height of 4.5m while minimising the working footprint, giving the operator more room to work in confined spaces such as mechanical and electrical (M&E) work, retail locations, refitting work, new construction and maintenance.

The Pecolift is power free and elevated by rotating a handle, the lift mechanism brings the operator up to full 3.5m working height in 11 seconds. With no batteries and no hydraulic oil, it is environmentally friendly with a tiny footprint and provides a mechanical solution that doesn’t involve erecting, unfolding or climbing.

A-Plant has also purchased a number of Power Towers’ Ecolift model which utilises the same technology and power system as the Pecolift, but, at 4.2m, provides almost a metre extra in working height

A-Plant’s order with Niftylift covers a range of models, including Electric Booms from 34 ft – 45 ft, bi-fuel booms, trailer mounted booms and 80 ft diesel articulated booms. The majority of the order is for the Niftylift Height Rider 12N Bi-Fuel model which has an overall weight of 3.5 tonnes, designed for low cost transportation.

A-Plant’s regional managing director Paul Dennis said, “This year alone we have spent more than £14 million. More and more of our customers are demanding eco-friendly equipment such as power and hydraulic oil free platforms, or the utilisation of bi-fuel on larger equipment, so the investment with Power Towers and Niftylift is important for us as it offers our customers a wider range of access solutions.”
