Facelift expands scissor lift fleet

Facelift expands scissor lift fleet

14 July 2008 Email this article

Facelift has recently taken delivery of its first 10 Compact 12DX Scissor lifts, bringing its scissor fleet to just over 300 units. Manufactured by French supplier Haulotte, the Compact 12DX is a brilliant piece of machinery and has few equals when it comes to rough terrain work.

The Compact 12's most valuable asset is its extremely tight turning circle, having an outside turning radius of 3.73m, this, coupled with being a half metre smaller in width than many of its competitors makes it a strong proposition for the most difficult of site conditions. The lift can cope with gradients of up to 40%, provide a working height of 12.2 metres, with the differential controls allowing much simpler and safer operator handling. The scissor's big deck, 2.50m x 1.50m platform, with roll out 1.2m deck extension, provides a large and safe working area, and has a generous carrying capacity of 450kg.

Frank Page Operations Director commented "The Compact 12 is a great piece of kit and extremely popular with customers, so much so, we're looking forward to ordering further lift platforms in near the future"
