AFI Rentals has bought around 100 machines from Zoomlion Green range to boost its fleet of more than 7,000 powered access machines.
The purchase was in line with the company’s policy of replacing this fleet with specialist hybrid or electric equipment to keep up with market demand and comply with increasingly strict emissions regulations, said David McNicholas, the company’s CEO.
“Approximately 70% of our rental fleet is now battery and bi-fuel,” he said. “The Zoomlion equipment offers high capacity and outreach and easy maintenance.”
The models bought include two electric telescopic boom lifts, the ZT22JE and ZT26JE, and two electric scissor lifts, the ZS06007ACW-Li and ZS121AC-Li.
The ZT22JE and ZT26JE are equipped with the latest intelligent connectivity technology, a customised lithium-ion battery, and a maintenance-free AC Drive system. The lithium-ion battery has an energy management system that prolongs operating time and extends the battery’s service life by at least 10%.
The ZS06007ACW-Li and ZS121AC-Li electric scissor lifts also have lithium-ion batteries, which offer a longer service life that extends the operation time by 30%, even under cold working conditions down to -20’C.
