Facelift gets makeover with Haulotte booms


ACCESS hirer Facelift has continued its diversification into self-propelled booms with the purchase of 30 more machines from French manufacturer Haulotte.

Having established its reputation with a large f leet of truckand trailer-mounted machines, narrow access platforms and specialist units, the company is now responding to requests for general-purpose machines.

Facelift managing director Gordon Leicester said: 'This is purely based on our customers' demands and I am quietly pleased with the way Facelift has begun to establish itself within this sector.' The new deal, which takes the company's boom fleet to more than 50 units, is made up exclusively of HA16SPXs with a work ing height of up to 16m.

The four-wheel drive, twowheel steer machines feature 180 degree platform rotation, cage load control and ground clearance of 38 cms.

Last year the company also acquired 60 scissor lifts, some from Haulotte and some from SkyJack.
