Hird now has available new Oil&Steel truck mounted access platforms as it introduces the brand back into the UK powered access market.
As the new UK and Ireland distributor for the Italian platforms, Hird has taken delivery of the first units for sale and is preparing to meet expected strong demand for the highly-capable machines.
Hird Managing Director Phil Hird said: “Oil&Steel truck mounted platforms are designed to be easy to use, with excellent safety features and smart controls that make working at height easier and faster.
“We’re confident our Oil&Steel platforms will do very well in the UK market. There is strong demand for a vehicle that can provide working at height at multiple locations in one shift.”
Working at height tasks the Oil&Steel platforms are well-suited for telecommunication installation and maintenance, street lighting maintenance, tree surgery and property repair and maintenance.
Snake 2010H Plus truck mount
The Snake 2010H Plus is an articulating platform on a 3.5t IVECO chassis so can be driven on a standard car licence.
It delivers a maximum working height of 20m and a maximum working outreach of an impressive 10m, combined with excellent up and over performance.
The Snake 2010H Plus has a very compact outrigger footprint making it an excellent choice for operating on confined spaces. Outriggers can be deployed in various configurations to take account of space and obstacles at the set-up site.
The truck mount platform’s double pantograph boom allows the basket to be moved up and down the side of a building in a perfect vertical plane, with no adjustment of controls, aiding safety and productivity.
Scorpion 2013 truck mount
The Scorpion 2013 has a three-part telescopic boom based on the same 3.5t IVECO chassis (so can also be driven on a car licence). It has a maximum working height of 19.9m and outreach of 12.5m.
The truck mount also has an impressive 250kg basket capacity at a restricted maximum working height of 19.5m and provides particularly fast set up and stow functions, boosting working at height productivity.
