The latest Skyjack models are part of an ongoing strategy “to build a comprehensive range of powered access solutions available to contractors UK wide,” said Speedy Powered Access Managing Director Andy Briggs.

Our continued focus on investment in electric and hybrid assets where possible is also helping contractors to access sustainable equipment that can help them to meet clients’ emissions targets.”
