Contractors redevelopinganagricultural feed mill hired booms and scissor lifts from AFI’s Super-Set fleet of large machinesto help them build a new £10m manufacturing facility and extend the existing premises.
Haines Construction (Southern) Limited hired two Genie Z135/70booms and a Holland Lift Megastar G320 scissor lift for the 12 month project.
Haines Construction Managing Director Kevan Haines said: “Our work included installing some very complex and heavy structural steelwork. We were using the full working height of the Genie Z135 boomlifts in some areas and their articulating booms and telescopic jibs gave us easy and flexible access for this complicated work. The Megastar’s extendable platform deck was ideal for the large sheets of cladding we were installing.”
The Genie Z135/70 has a working height of 43.15m, and the Holland Lift Megastar G320 has a working height of 33.70m and a platform length of 10.02m when extended.
AFI has made considerable investments in its Super-Set range, which now features over 150machines with working heights from 21.4m to 58.56m.
