Blackpool-based Smiths Hire is pushing forward, with a recent investment in twenty Snorkel S3010P push-around scissor lifts.

Designed as an alternative to step ladders, podiums and scaffold towers, the S3010P reaches a maximum working height of 5.0m, and can be easily pushed into position or manouevered around a building when stowed. These mini scissor lifts are suitable for all types of low-level work, including electrical and HVAC installation, construction fit-out applications, painting, signage and décor, and buildings maintenance.

Smiths Hire itself operates 16 depots covering the North West of England. The company offers a vast range of access, plant and tools for hire, as well as new equipment for sale. With more than 50 years’ experience, the company specialises in powered access, with more than 560 units available to hire.

The units were delivered to Smiths on November 12 and immediately deployed. Scott McCall of Snorkel UK handed over the units to Smiths Hire Joint Managing Director, Thomas Smith (right), who said:

“Low level access products are popular with our customers and are hired for many different types of projects. We chose the Snorkel S3010P as they are robust products that stand up well to the demands of the hire industry, and we like that fact that they are manufactured here in the U.K., just a few hours up the road from our depots.”
