Brand new Genie S85 added to Quick Reach fleet

With a working height of 90 feet and a lift capacity of 500 pounds, this immense telescopic boom can reach exciting heights.  Its four-wheel drive and oscillating platform will ensure a smooth ride when working on uneven terrain.  Quick Reach’s anti-entrapment feature will assure the users’ safety; crucially important when working at such heights. Generators can be supplied on all booms in the fleet so that customers can easily get on with their job.  The addition of a DPF filter will produce cleaner emissions and allow this machine to be brought indoors – space dependent of course!

Gene hybrids for Quick Reach

Quick Reach has purchased a number of 60ft Genie Z-60/37FE hybrid articulated boom lifts as part of its 2016 expansion plans.

The new Genies will complement its 50ft Nifty HR17 hybrid boom lifts, in addition to the two metres of additional working height, the new Genies offer a little more up and over reach and almost two metres more outreach. Although the Niftylifts benefit from being 2.5 tonnes lighter, making the two products good stable mates.

Quicklift has initially ordered six of the new Genie booms, which will be based at its branches in Scotland, Manchester and London.

“We have taken a great interest in the new Genie Hybrid and we are pleased to be one of the first to bring the product to the UK. We identified numerous benefits that the new boom lift offers, including its impressive drive speed of 4.0 mph. Machines of this type offer a good return on capital employed for hire companies in my opinion. The Nifty HR 21 and the New Z60/37FE are unique, with low noise and clean performance and this will become more prevalent on construction sites as they become more popular.”
David Barton, Director of Quick Reach
