Warren invests in JCB scissors
By Euan Youdale27 November 2017
Warren Access is among the first hire companies in the UK to purchase JCB’s new line of scissor lifts.
The North East England-based Access Alliance member acquired some of the new machines from local JCB dealer Scot JCB.
“After reviewing the alternatives, we opted for the new JCB narrow electric scissor lifts,” said company owner and managing director Graeme Warren. “We believe our customers will love the features of these quality machines, and the JCB brand gives immediate confidence. For us the promised 24/7 after-sales service response really clinched the deal”.
Warren Access, which specialises in light truck and van mounted platforms, have a relatively small but growing fleet of self-propelled machines. It chose JCB’s 1930E and 2632E models, with 8m and 10m working heights respectively and an overall width of under 800mm.
“These machines are ideal for our industrial customers,” said Warren,“and we think the quality build and useful features will help us maintain our reputation for supplying the best quality kit at competitive prices”.
Some of the features which were appealing, said Warren, includes easy access to the platform via a full height swing gate, control box readily relocatable to either side of the machine and neat, protected but highly visible LED warning beacons on the chassis.
“It’s hard to differentiate between the various manufacturer’s electric scissors in term of performance,” added Warren, “but what customers really want is ease of use and reliability.”
