Latest products JCB Access launches scissor lifts

JCB has introduced a range of electric scissor lifts powered by Lithium-ion batteries, just a year after entering the access market. The five new models available comprise the S1530E (pictured), S1930E, S2032E, S2646E and the S2646E, offering working heights of 6.6m through to 10.1m. The manufacturer says that the batteries offer up to 40% longer operation

and a 50% cut in recharging times, and they can be left in a low state of charge without damaging the cells. For protection, they can also be set to cut-out when minimum charge level is reached. The Lithium-ion

powered machines can be used in conjunction with a smartphone app which provides wireless connectivity for real-time condition checks of the batteries. In addition, JCB Access has developed a battery management system that works in conjunction with the motor controller to allow operators to monitor each cell in the battery pack, adjusting the load to optimise performance. A Dutch access

machinery hire company, Hoogwerkt has placed an order for 420 of the new Lithium ion scissor lifts as it sets up a new ‘green’ rental business, incorporating a web-based ordering system and hourly hire periods.

Pivoting stabilisers are incorporated to facilitate usage close to walls and in corners, and the unit has ‘anti-surf’ characteristics. The Pod conforms to the BS8620 standard and has an integrated ladder,

with a toe board available as an option. The unit is available with platform heights of 0.95m, 1.13m or 1.45m. WernerCo says the product takes up less space than standard podiums in storage and transportation.

Manoeuvrability from Manitou

The Manitou 80VJR vertical mast platform is suitable for use in construction and industrial environments, and its compact chassis allows considerable manoeuvrability in confined areas. The controls have been developed for smooth and accurate operation even in tight spaces, indoors and outdoors. With 355° turret rotation, the machine offers enhanced operational flexibility and an increased working envelope. The machine weighs 2,250kg and is light and compact enough to fit into a goods lift. The mast is designed with telescopic boom sections

and without chains, with the majority of lifting elements being located inside the mast for maximum protection. The machine offers a working height of 7.70m and with the jib arm (+/-70°) it provides operators with a horizontal working outreach of up to 3.25m. The basket can accommodate two operators for a

maximum load capacity of 200kg. It has a mesh floor and double guardrails, and is fitted with Manitou’s safe man (secondary guarding) system. The machine is fitted with a self-seeking battery charger and, to assist fault finding, there is an on-board diagnostics function.
