Hire fleet expanded
29 October 2014
AFI has made further investments in its hire fleet to ensure that customers are hiring some of the most modern and reliable machines available.
Director Nick Selley said: "Our purchase of Genie, JLG, Skyjack and BoSS machines will ensure that our fleet’s current average machine age continues to be about five years, which is significantly younger than many of our national competitors.”
Recent additions include 50 Genie Z45/25 boom lifts, 10 Genie GS4047 and 40 Genie GS2632 scissor lifts, five JLG 860SJ and five JLG 660SJ boom lifts, 35 Skyjack SJ46AJ boom lifts and 60 BoSS X3 push arounds. AFI is purchasing all new booms with the manufacturers’ approved electronic secondary guarding system.
AFI has also purchased more than 300 Skyjack machines (comprising 200 used machines and 100 new ones). These are mostly SJ3219 electric scissor lifts, which provide a high degree of versatility for working in tight spots where agility and manoeuvrability make all the difference.
