Skyab has become the latest equipment rental company in Sweden to invest in Snorkel lifts.
Skyab has purchased 12 Snorkel M1230E self-propelled mast lifts. This all-electric lift can be driven through standard interior doorways and carried in passenger elevators, and can lift two people with tools to a safe platform height of 3.6 m.
Skyab purchased the lifts from Zip-Up Svenska, the official Snorkel distributor in Sweden. Rickard Holmlund, CEO of Zip-Up, said: “This type of electric mast lift has always been popular in Sweden, as it delivers a very good return on investment for rental companies and is a straightforward product for their customers to use.”
The robust reverse concentric mast design gives the M1230E its lift capacity of 227kg, said the company. and a stable work platform. It is used in a wide range of applications, from construction and maintenance to stock-picking. It is also rated for outdoor use, by one person.
The M1230E is fitted with twin saloon door-style entry gates and the same control system also found on Snorkel’s S Series scissor lifts. It also has a flat steel deck floor with high grip tape, which prevents any misplaced screws or other small items falling into the machine’s works.
