JMS moves into truck mounted boom hire market

Powered access rental specialist JMS has added a truck-mounted boom lift to its hire fleet for the first time.

The company has invested in the GSR 200PX, which offers hire customers a maximum working height of 20m and a maximum outreach of 8.7m.

JMS Managing Director Mark Jackson said: “We’re responding to customer demand for a boom lift option that provides particularly fast and flexible working at height.

“Our truck-mounted boom can go straight to site and be up and working in minutes. There’s no off-loading or loading of equipment so jobs can be turned around faster.

“Truck mounts are ideal for working at multiple locations in one day. Or we can provide a truck and operator to complete a one-off working at height task that’s critical to a wider project.

“In both scenarios truck mount hire could well be the most cost-effective and safest powered access solution which is going to make the GSR 200PX popular with our customers.”

Impressive basket capacity

The GSR 200PX truck-mounted platform has an impressive basket capacity of 300kg throughout its working envelope, allowing a significant quantity of tools and materials to be carried.

Its up-and-over reach of 8.7m means it can gain access to hard-to-reach areas, aided by turret rotation of 450-degrees and basket rotation though 140 degrees for precise positioning.

As the articulating boom is mounted on a van chassis it can be driven under a standard car driving licence. Also, its simple and intuitive controls make it an ideal option for self-drive truck mount hire.

Structural surveys and maintenance

The GSR 200PX can be used for a wide variety of working at height tasks including tree surgery, lighting maintenance, structural surveying, bridge maintenance and digital mast installation.

As well as truck mounted boom hire, JMS offers a wide range of working at height solutions, including trailer mounted boom lifts, rough terrain boom lifts, and tracked spider boom lifts.
