Kranpunkten invests in 130 electric scissors
By Lewis Tyler15 November 2022
Swedish rental company Kranpunkten has placed an order for 130 electric scissor lifts from Dingli.
The all-electric lifts, which are expected to enter the market in the first quarter of 2023, include the JCPT1923DC self-propelled rough-terrain scissor lift and the JCPT1012PA oil-free unit.
According to the company, the order will enable it to meet the sustainability needs of its customers with a “gradual conversion to more electric and hybrid-powered units.”
Kranpunkten says it has seen an increasing demand for sustainable machines from its customers, and the latest order means it can provide them with “sustainable benefits.”
The delivery also means that 84% of the machinery owned by Kranpunkten is now made up of environmentally and energy-saving machines, and is the latest in a string of moves in its strategy to become 100% climate neutral.
In the last year the company has continued to invest in green machinery, with notable orders placed with Genie, NiftyLift, JLG, Magni and Ruthmann.
Rikard Jönsson, purchasing manager at Kranpunkten, said, “We continue to make high demands on our suppliers. Therefore, it is gratifying to see that technology development is moving forward and giving us opportunities to supplement our fleet with standardised, electric-powered machines that can handle work at high altitude.
“After various tests and product reviews, it also feels very good to be able to execute the order for oil-free machines. Hopefully it will help our customers and our own service organisation in a positive way going forward.”
As well as reducing emissions of its machines, Kranpunkten is also phasing out substances that are hazardous to the environment and health, and are reducing energy consumption and waste.
The JCPT1923DC has a working height of up to 19m and maximum load of 750kg, while the JCPT1012PA has a working height of up to 10m and maximum load of 450kg, and comes without hydraulic systems and with lower energy consumption.
