Dromad Hire recently purchased two electric A38E boom lifts from Snorkel.

Irish rental company, Dromad Hire, has purchased two new Snorkel A38E boom lifts

The Snorkel A38E is an electric articulated boom lift that delivers 13.5m of working height, up to 5.9m of horizontal reach, and is fitted with non-marking tyres as standard. According to the company, it has an ultra-tight turning radius, is less than 1.5m wide, and has a 90-degree hydraulically powered platform rotation. Weighing 3,770kg, the A38E can be used for working indoors on floors where ground pressure is limited.

Founded in 1988, Dromad Hire is a fully Irish-owned, family operated plant and tool hire business that is based in Dundalk in the Republic of Ireland.

“We have been running Snorkel A38E’s in our fleet now for some time, so the machine is already proven to us," said Dromad Hire Managing Director Seamus Byrne. "Snorkel UK provide us with excellent backup and support so this made our decision over choosing other manufacturers a very easy one.

“The new A38E models further extends our product offering in electric boom lifts, which are increasingly in demand with our customers due to their use in specialized applications – particularly indoor use.”

Snorkel UK is the direct sales and service operation for Snorkel lifts in the UK and Ireland. The order from Dromad Hire was placed with Snorkel UK during Vertikal Days 2016, and will be supported by the Snorkel UK team.

Andrew Fishburn, Divisional Managing Director of Snorkel UK added, “We are thrilled that Dromad Hire have decided to expand their fleet of Snorkel A38E boom lifts. This is a very popular model that has already been well received by their customer base, and we are grateful for their continued support and trust.

“I am also extremely pleased that our level of support played a part in securing this order – our team work very hard to deliver the highest standards of customer service possible and it is great to have this recognized by leading hire companies, such as Dromad Hire.”

Dromad Hire has already taken delivery of the two electric articulated boom lifts, and they are now deployed within the fleet.
