Riwal supplies hybrid first
By Euan Youdale07 November 2017
Riwal has delivered the first JLG H340AJ to Xtra Materieel, an equipment rental company in the Netherlands.
Riwal is the JLG distributor for the Netherlands and Poland. This new hybrid boom lift is designed to bring together powerful performance with the benefits of hybrid efficiency, so jobs inside and outside can be tackled. Using 30% less fuel, the H340AJ is powered with four independent electric-drive motors and a diesel-powered generator. The JLG H340AJ reduces environmental impact and offers zero emissions inside and quieter operation.
Eric Westerhof, owner of Xtra Materieel commented, “Xtra Materieel decided to invest in the JLG H340AJ through Riwal, because we care about the environment and quality for our customers. Besides that, I think it is very important to promote corporate social responsibility in this industry by investing in hybrid machines. We have an excellent cooperation with Riwal, which we continue to build upon with additional JLG investments with them.
