Riwal invests in ‘sustainable’ Holland lifts

By Steve Ducker05 June 2015

Riwal, the aerial work platform and telehandler rental specialist, has expanded its fleet with electric and hybrid powered scissor lifts from Holland Lift.

In addition to investing in standard Holland Lift models, Riwal has purchased the new hybrid HL-275 H25 scissor lift, which has a working height of 27 metres.

Holland Lift won Product of the Year award with the machine in the Self Propelled category at the 2015 International Awards for Powered Access.

Riwal has also added the Megastar HL-340 E30, the world’s tallest electric scissor lift - with a working height of 34 metres and a lifting capacity of 1000 kg - to its rental fleet.

Søren Rosenkrands, Riwal’s chief operating officer, said: “This investment underlines our commitment to provide our customers with a range of sustainable alternatives to diesel powered machines.

“Not only do we provide a broad range of equipment to suit any job, we also meet the customer demand for environmentally friendly machines.”

Eline Oudenbroek, managing director of Holland Lift, added: “The market demands sustainable access equipment for inside and outside use with zero emissions to ensure maximum flexibility and a return on investment without compromising performance.

“With the HL-340 E30 and the HL-275 H25, Riwal has made a sustainable decision for the future.”
