Custom Equipment has announced that St. Louis, USA-based RG Rents now carries Hy-Brid Lifts' low level scissor lifts.

RG Rents is an independent dealer that rents, sells and services scissor lifts, boom lifts and telehandlers. The rental centre offers HB-1430 Hy-Brid Lifts, and it maintains customer-owned equipment.

“Hy-Brid Lifts comprise about a quarter of our inventory because of this growing demand,” said Dan Tumminello, RG Rents chairman. “In addition to their light weight, they also have more lifting capacity than the average lift, so contractors can maximize the amount of equipment and materials they can transport and use at the worksite.”

Joe Alonzo, Henrique Tavares and Mr Tumminello opened RG Rents in January 2015 after working several years in the aerial platform industry. For about 15 years, Mr Tumminello and Mr Alonzo owned Midwest Aerials’ three Missouri locations in St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield and its Bloomington, Illinois store until selling the company in 2011.

Mr Tavares operated Escalar Lifts in the southeastern Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte for more than 20 years and also sold the business in 2011.

“Dan and Joe rented and sold Hy-Brid Lifts for many years, and I know that, along with Henrique, they will represent Hy-Brid Lifts well,” said Justin Kissinger, Custom Equipment. “They are very knowledgeable on scissor lifts and provide around-the-clock service to ensure RG Rents’ customers get fast delivery and service responses.”
