FTH Hire group has made a substantial investment in powered access equipment, with a recent order for ten Snorkel scissor lifts

The mixed delivery included two Snorkel S3219Es (max working height 7.79m), four S3226Es (mwh 9.9m)  and two S4732Es (mwh 11.8m) - itself the largest in Snorkel's electric scissor range. The order also included two diesel-powered S3370RT compact rough terrain scissors, which can reach 12.0m. Delivered in mid-February to the Farnham depot, Snorkel UK Area Sales Manager, Scott Holtby handed over the lifts and provided machine familiarisation training to the FTH Hire team.
