Solutions Rental expands with all-electric lifts
By Leila Steed18 July 2022
Brazil-based Solutions Rental (SR) has added JLG’s all-electric DaVinci scissor lift model to its equipment rental fleet.
As specialist in the rental and sale of aerial platforms, SR is located in the city of Paulínia and serves customers across the entire São Paulo region.
It added the DaVinci AE1932 model, which is powered by a single 24V lithium-ion battery and has a maximum working height of 5.8m (9ft) as well as a basket capacity of 275kg, for its lack of hydraulic components, which means there is no possibility of oil leakages.
Yuri Caldeira, commercial director at SR, said, “With the DaVinci, we are the first rental company in Brazil to provide a Scissor Lift with zero oil leakage, something up until recently [that was] unimaginable for segments such as hospitals, pharmaceutical plants, museums, data centres, the food industry, which require absolute care when it comes to cleanliness, hygiene and bringing the risk of contamination to a minimum.”
Another reason behind the company’s purchase decision was the remote diagnostic and software update capabilities of the DaVinci. SR said this means there “almost no need for preventive maintenance” and that the total cost of ownership is further reduced.
While SR - which is also an IPAF affiliated member, did not disclose how many of the DaVinci units it added to its operations, the company has already demonstrated it to several of its “major customers in segments that are sensitive to oil leakage”.
“We are very positive about the receptivity of this innovative All Electric Scissor Lift by the market and we believe that in the near future the demand for this equipment will have an incredible exponential growth,” said Caldeira.
