Fast-growing access rental specialist Levels Above has selected LGMG electric scissor lifts supplied by Access Platform Sales to continue to expand its fleet.
The company, based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, has invested in four LGMG SS0507E scissor lifts, with a maximum working height of 6.3 metres.
It is the first rental company in the UK and Ireland to take delivery of the new LGMG scissor lifts, which are designed to be particularly effective in constrained space, both indoors or outdoors.
Levels Above, founded by directors Russell Anderson and Neil Blakemore in 2020 as a powered access rental broker, is now building its own fleet of electric scissor lifts.
It was impressed by the quality and performance of the LGMG SS0507E scissor, the ability of APS to fulfil the order quickly and the excellent after sales service provided.
Russell Anderson, pictured above right, said: “As an expanding and ambitious business we need to be able to source the right platforms in the right timescales and APS can deliver on both counts.
“With low-level access, being able to respond rapidly to customer enquires is particularly important and that means we also need an agile response from suppliers, which APS achieves very well.”
Neil Blakemore, above left, added: “LGMG is a clearly a high quality product and extremely easy to operate, two attributes our customers are sure to appreciate. It’s also priced very well for us.
“As we expand, we can see advantages in terms of commonality of parts and control systems across different models which will help us and our customers.”
APS is the UK and Ireland distributor for LGMG platforms.
Its Key Accounts Director Linda Betts said: “I’m very pleased Russell and Neil have been impressed with LGMG. The company works ceaselessly to make its products as user-friendly as possible for both hirers and they customers, which is reflected in the confident of our clients.”
The LGMG SS series of electric scissor lifts provides platforms with working heights from 5.6 metres – the SS0407E – to 7.5 metres – the SS0607E.
The LGMG SS0507E is a light-weight electric scissor with a zero turning radius. Its highly-efficient electric drive system supports longer battery life and excellent gradeability of 25 percent.
The sealed electric motors protect the platform from water and dust, ensuring it will operate reliably and consistently in challenging conditions.
The scissor lift’s platform is 1350mm long and 700mm wide, with a capacity of 230kg. A 600mm extension deck has a 113kg capacity.
As with other LGMG platforms, the SS0507E scissor has a particularly effective and easy-to-use intelligent diagnostic system that allows operatives to more quickly assess and resolve faults, minimising operational downtime.
The scissor lift can be supplied with a range of optional functions, including AC power and compressed air to the platform, an anti-collision system, and GPS.
Levels Above is confident its expanding client base, which includes major retailers, manufacturers, construction contractors and facilities maintenance specialists will be impressed by the SS0407E.
Neil Blakemore said: “These scissor lifts are exactly what our customers expect from us. What’s just as important is the technical and maintenance assistance APS provides. It’s a complete package of support.”
