SHB has announced its continued working relationship with Versalift UK with conversion work on 15 newly-added LCV’s.
All of the brand new platforms are now certified LV (Low Voltage). This enables the operator to have protection from electrocution for voltages up to 1000v.
Versalift UK have kitted out SHB’s new MEWPs with features such as Zero Tail swing, a Motorway Interlock and the added safety feature of a walk-in bucket.
The platform runs off a PTO (Power Take Off) which energises the platform. The vehicles are also fitted with bucket controls and 12v emergency lowering controls, all of the platforms created conform to the EN280 directive.
SHB’s brand new fleet of 3.5T Ford Transits are fitted with a working height of 13.0m: a maximum bucket capacity of 230kg, a 120o Flyboom rotation and a maximum outreach of 8.5m.
Versalift UK have worked closely with SHB for over ten years.
Versalift UK’s regional sales manager Chris Wrenn said: “We are already looking forward to the future with SHB and are motivated to see what else it has in store, whether it is developing the next platform or fitting them on many more vehicles.
SHB Hire’s MEWPs manager Ian Burton said: “Versalift and SHB have a very successful partnership and we are already looking at where we can place more orders for the expansion of business.
“We want to make sure all of our vehicles are safer than ever, the walk-in buckets are a fantastic feature that we have added to the vans and we can’t wait to get them out and on the road."
SHB has reported that it will continue to work with Versalift UK, with plans already in motion regarding the conversion of different vehicle types.
