Electric Cherry Picker Hire

Over recent years, the popularity of electric cherry pickers has increased and manufacturers have responded with ever more powerful machines, enabling operators to work higher and longer on one battery charge.

What’s driving the demand for electric cherry pickers? Work sites are becoming greener and low emission zones more commonplace so contractors need machines that can accommodate these locations without compromising on productivity.

Electric powered cherry pickers share many of the capabilities of their counterpart diesel cherry pickers but with the added advantages of reduced noise and zero emissions. This makes them ideal for working indoors as well as outdoors and in sensitive environments – residential and city centres – where disturbance to those in the surrounding areas need to be kept to a minimum.

Bi-energy: Offering the best of both world’s, bi-energy cherry pickers give the option of using quiet, emission-free battery power for indoor applications and a powerful diesel motor, suited to external applications and for travelling across sites.

Spider Cherry Picker Hire

As work sites become ever more demanding, the need for cherry pickers that can cope with challenging terrains increases.
Spider cherry pickers, propelled by tracks, provide exceptional agility on uneven surfaces and landscaped areas where access is restricted.

The term “spider” refers to the outrigger configuration, which looks like spider legs. These enables the load of the machine to be spread evenly across the floor, something that is particularly useful for floors with load point restrictions.

Spider lifts provide high reach capability whilst retaining narrow travel width. This makes them ideal for use where access is limited such as in retail and leisure environments and historic buildings.

At JMS, you’ll find a range of spider cherry pickers with working heights of 14m to 52m from manufacturers such as Hinowa, JLG, Teupen and Falcon.

Diesel cherry picker hire

Diesel powered cherry pickers are the most powerful self propelled cherry pickers available for hire.

Usually hired for external jobs, they can reach huge heights of up to 58.57m and can be operated all day long without the need for refueling.

While diesel power has its advantages, it’s not the most environmentally friendly option which is why many modern diesel cherry pickers have Stage V diesel engines. Stage V engines reduce the number of diesel particles emitted with the exhaust gases making them kinder to the environment.

At JMS you’ll find a range of diesel cherry pickers – articulated, telescopic and spider lifts.

Hire from leading diesel cherry picker manufacturers such as Hinowa, Manitou, Genie, Haulotte, JLG, Skyjack and Nagano. The latter being the latest addition to the JMS fleet with articulated and telescopic crawler booms.
