Immediate Success For Concord’s Hy-Brid Lifts

Concord Access Solutions

Concord Access Rental (GAR) the mobile elevator work platform (MEWP) rental company in Imperial’s Concord group reports that the demand for its U.S.- made Hy-Brid HB-830 scissor lifts is beyond expectation.

“There is a need almost everywhere in commerce for these machines, which are, in essence, industrial stepladders. They are compact, very easy to handle, and manufactured to the exacting standards that have made Hy-Brid such an internationally renowned brand,” says Dean Jones CAR operations director.

He adds that working at height has never been as convenient. “With its zero-turn radius, whether doing a painting job in a confined space, picking stock in a retail store or warehouse or working on a construction site, you can manually push this machine to where you need it easily, safely and quickly. Also, it is extremely sturdy and although very compact, the deck allows you to carry whatever you need in terms of equipment,” he says.

The features and benefits of the HB-830 include:
• 227kg lifting capacity
• On-board fault code display, which enables identification and troubleshooting of any systems issues
• Low stowed height, allows for easier lifting of materials and tools onto platform
• Manoeuvrability – compact size allows the machine to easily go through standard single doors, turn tight corners, navigate confined spaces and fit into most personnel elevators.
• Virtually Maintenance Free – only two batteries to maintain and no grease or oiling required.

Safety features include:
• Tilt sensor which prevents unsafe operation
• Pothole protection to prevent tip-overs
• Platform overload protection
• Ergonomically designed to reduce worker fatigue
• Using the HB-830 is much safer than conventional ladders and scaffolding

Jones says that the Hy-Brid product is part of a planned expansion in the range of machines in the CAR fleet so that customers will have greater choice. “For example, we have recently also taken delivery of at least 25 units, most of which being big diesel boom lifts from 85 feet platform height up to 135 feet.”

With a product range that includes scissor lifts, articulated and telescopic boom lifts and low-level access equipment, Concord Access Rental is a one-stop access equipment rental shop specialising in the rental and service of its equipment. It also offers training for clients’ operators to ensure maximum productivity.
