By Euan Youdale and Lindsey Anderson22 February 2015
The Rental Show is taking place in New Orleans, USA, this week with a host of product launches from the access sector.
Exhibition organiser the American Rental Association (ARA) expects visitor numbers to top last year's 5600 at the Earnest M Morial Convention Centre during the show's run from 22 - 25 February.
Bronto Skylift is exhibiting at the Rental Show for the first time with its S 150 XDT truck mount. According to the company the model is suited to the rental market thanks to a lower weight, compact design, making it road legal in all states.
Custom Equipment is displaying seven models from its Hy-Brid line of low level scissor lifts. For example, the 550 pound capacity HB-830 features a longer platform to give maintenance crews and contractors more space for tools and supplies.
Haulotte Group has a large number of its products on show, with a significant focus on its new HA46RTJ rough terrain articulating boom.
MEC is exhibiting its new 60-J articulating boom. The 60 foot working height machine has 600 pounds of lifting capacity and nearly 43 feet outreach.
ReachMaster is presenting a new partnership with Finland-based Dinolift, with the manufacturer's RXT series.
