Milton Keynes based rental company, Elavation Ltd, have added Snorkel TM12 self-propelled mast lifts to their fleet.

The order placed with Snorkel UK, consists of 6 Snorkel TM12’s were handed over to Elavation director, Barry Brady, earlier this month by Snorkel UK’s sales director, Linda Betts.

Elavation offer rental and sales of powered access equipment, as well as technical support and service for units across the United Kingdom. With over 50 years industry experience, the team at Elavation is focused on delivering high levels of service and safety to its customer base, and is IPAF Rental+ accredited.

Barry Brady, Director at Elavation, said, “We are proud to add Snorkel TM12’s to our ever-expanding hire fleet. The opportunity to work with a UK manufacturer, and the quality of the finished products made this a simple deal for us. Our clients are now guiding us into facilities that require lifts that are not only reliable and efficient, but also look good. The paint finish on the Snorkel TM12’s was a major factor in our decision. It is also great to work with Linda again.”

Barry added, “We are finding our rental returns in this market are increasing as our clients become more sophisticated in their applications and use. The TM12’s answered this need.”

The Snorkel TM12 is a self-propelled telescopic mast lift that delivers a maximum working height of 5.6m and can lift 227kg capacity.  It is equipped with a 0.5m roll-out extension deck for additional reach over low-level obstacles, such as shelving, making the TM12 ideal for many applications including retail, warehouse environments and stock picking.  The Snorkel TM12 can be driven through standard interior doorways and carried in passenger elevators, yet will still lift two people with tools.  Powered by dual front mounted hydraulic motors, it also has a high-amp hour rating, ensuring a long operating lift between battery chargers.

Andrew Fishburn, Divisional Managing Director at Snorkel UK said, “We are extremely pleased to be supplying our popular TM12 mast lifts to Elavation, one of the leading names in the UK hire market. We are very proud to manufacture our products here in the UK, and it is great that this has been recognized by Barry and played a part in his decision to purchase from Snorkel.”
