A lighting engineers dream

Facelift Access Hire is pleased to announce the expansion of its van mounted access platform fleet with the arrival of seven brand new Ascendant Access 12.5 VM's.

This investment follows the great success we've had with other Ascendant truck mounted platforms in the fleet, including the Ascendant 22 - 17 and the Ascendant 17 - 12. These truck mounted cherry pickers have proved incredibly popular with both the self drive hire and the operated hire market for being tough, reliable and easily operated vehicles.  

The 12.5 meter van mount will set the new standard for lighting and electrical engineers. There is a whopping 370KG of spare payload capacity, also with kerb side access and all in a 3.5 tonne van. The zero tail swing plus two independently operated booms arrangement gives excellent controllability when manoeuvering.
The Ascendant has a large, insulated GRP cage with a walk in entry door and a 230kg SWL carrying capacity to help maximise productivity.

Since their arrival, these machines have proved to be very popular for their ease of use and the fact that they are such good value, so much so that we have already placed an order for another five.

The 12.5 is available for long term rental and contract hire as well as operated and self drive hire. View the Ascendant 12.5 spec
