What else do I have to consider when hiring a vertical mast lift?
Vertical Mast Lifts fall within the remit of IPAF. They can only be operated by a competent and qualified person. Therefore, we advise that prior to hiring you consider this. Working at height safely comes with numerous responsibilities. Not just for the operator and their health and safety, but also for those around where the hired vertical mast lift is being used.
Delivery is an additional point to consider. Both from a monetary sense and a practical sense. The delivery of any large bit of kit like a vertical mast platform will involve at best a flatbed truck – at worst this could be mid to large sized truck – so you may need to consider this for when you have your hired Star 10 or similar delivered.
Is Haulotte the only Manufacturer of Vertical Mast Platforms?
Not at all, Haulotte is a popular brand of vertical mast platforms that are available for hire and probably one of the most well-known – aside from marketing leading Genie with their GR Range of Vertical mast platforms.
Another renowned manufacturer is Manitou with their popular 100 VJR (Vertical Platform) In most cases if you are looking to hire a vertical mast platform for a week or even a couple of weeks. You will only be concerned about its capability of getting the job done (weight capacity and operating height) and the cost per week to hire the vertical platform.
