AFI orders 100 more Versalift 13.50m Van Mounted Cherry Pickers

AFI orders 100 more Versalift 13.50m Van Mounted Cherry Pickers

One of the UK's powered access specialists, AFI group of companies have finalised another order for an additional 100 new Versalift VTL135F van mounts to add to the growing Facelift van mounted fleet. These vans can work in many industries but are in particular demand from AFI and Facelift customers who are supporting the UK infrastructure. Because they weigh under 3.5t they can be driven on a normal car licence and require an IPAF 1B to operate.

The new Versalift 13.50m Van Mounted Cherry Pickers are perfect for work that requires greater horizontal outreach than the other Van Mounts, because, thanks to its larger turret, it can give almost a full metre extra (0.70m) of extra reach. This makes it ideal for those infrastructure jobs which are low to the ground but difficult to gain direct access to, such as jobs behind walls, or roadside signage. The articulating basket will ensure the greatest flexibility when most needed and all vans are fitted with an on-board ultraviolet disinfecting light that will destroy up to 99.9% of germs.

David McNicholas, CEO of AFI-Uplift said "Since we made the decision to purchase the original order of Versalift VTL135 van mounted platforms we have seen exceptional customer demand and excellent feedback about the product. This latest order demonstrates our confidence in the market and product as we seek to service customers who support the maintenance of the UK infrastructure."

Andy Bray, Managing Director for Versalift UK said "This second order for VTL’s from AFI and Facelift shows real commitment and confidence in the product. We are delighted to be working closely with them as they continue to expand their rental fleet."

The 100 VTL units will go straight into the Facelift hire fleet, and on to hire customers.
