JMS makes heavy investment in lightweight booms

Powered access hire specialist JMS has taken delivery of 30 new Niftylift booms.

The investment of over £1.1million reflects the growing popularity in the UK of compact, lightweight powered access machines.

Boom hire investment

JMS Managing Director Mark Jackson said: “JMS wants to be at the forefront of offering customers the very latest compact lightweight access platforms.

“These machines are proving to be a highly flexible sustainable way to work at height, which is why we see demand for them growing significantly.

“JMS is also pleased to have a close association with Niftylift – a British brand known for its reliable and robust booms.”

Sustainable, efficient flexible powered access hire

Niftylift’s hybrid technology allows its booms to be operated with low-emission combined diesel and electric power or zero-emission electric-only power.

The flexibility this delivers – allowing one machine to operate indoors and outdoors to the same high standard – is a key sustainability advantage.

Mark Jackson said: “Customers increasingly want sustainable, efficient and flexible powered access hire options, which is why Niftylift booms make perfect sense.

“We are continually growing and renewing our hire fleet to invest in a wide spectrum of machines brands, so we’re a one-stop shop for powered access users.”
