Versalift UK, have delivered the first batch of E6 models to Access Hire Nationwide, one of the UK’s leading vehicle mounted hire companies. The order of eight ETL36-F (E6) platforms, mounted on 3.5 tonne GVW Ford Transits, has been purchased to fulfil a contract hire which requires the productivity and efficiency benefits of the Versalift E6 models.
The new E6 models are built from the ground up with everything that a contractor might require. The emergency lowering valves are now conveniently located inside the pedestal within the load area for easier access and maintenance. New stronger, lighter booms mean that an impressive outreach of up to 8.5m can be achieved with the LMC load sensing system. There’s more payload, now more than 300kg and a safe working load of 230kg. More control, better safety and all round improved productivity.
From its base in Normanton, West Yorkshire, Access Hire Nationwide specialises in van mounted platforms and 4x4 MEWPs, operating the largest hire fleet of van mounts in the UK, which are supplied on a short term, long term or contract hire basis.
Through 2016, the company made significant capital investment in its fleet and this latest order with Versalift will see all eight of the new ETL 36 models placed on contract hire with a client involved in the facilities maintenance/security sector.
Danny Cooper, Divisional Managing Director – Access at Access hire Nationwide commented as follows, “Our dedicated team have extensive knowledge of the markets we support and ensure that we deliver the service required to meet our customers’ needs. The specification of the new models was discussed with our client prior to confirming the order and the technical improvements that have been incorporated. The enhanced working envelope through the Load Moment Control system will be of particular benefit. We have built a good relationship with Versalift over several years because of the confidence gained from its market leading product offering and effective after service support.”
Andy Bray, Sales Director for Versalift UK said, “We are delighted to continue supporting Access Hire Nationwide and further developing a relationship that goes back many years.”
