The best access hire solutions for tree and shrub maintenance

From cherry pickers to scissor lifts, the right access equipment can make all the difference to success. Get the ideal equipment for your landscaping needs!

Spring is the perfect time to get back into shrub and tree maintenance. With the frost and wintery weather officially gone, their lush green leaves have returned. It’s always best to start sooner rather than later, not only to get them in check, but also to keep them well-maintained before it becomes an overwhelming job in the summer, so you can stay one step ahead!

Rise to the occasion with our range of scissor lifts

We take great pride in offering our customers an impressive selection of scissor lifts that are easy to operate, and versatile enough to cater to all your tree and shrub maintenance needs. With our scissor lifts, you can work at heights safely and more efficiently, which makes trimming and pruning as easy as if your feet are planted firmly on the floor.

We understand that different jobs and equipment require scissor lifts that can handle different weights, and that’s why we have you covered with a wide range of safe working loads. Our eco-friendly electric scissor lifts come in various sizes, from 227kg to 750kg, while the diesel scissor lifts range from 454kg to 1000kg. If you are working on rough terrain, our diesel outdoor scissor lifts are especially handy as they come with self-levelling outriggers, so you can get to hard-to-reach areas without worrying about unstable ground.

Get into hard-to-reach places with our cherry pickers

While cherry pickers may not be the first access hire solution that comes to mind when it comes to tree and shrub maintenance, they come in very handy. If you have a hard-to-reach area where the terrain is too unsteady for a scissor lift, or if the area you’re trying to reach is blocked, an articulated cherry picker presents the perfect outreach solution.

Spider lifts, explicitly designed to tackle tight and awkward spots, offer an easy way to tackle complicated trimming jobs. With their ability to manoeuvre in multiple directions, they easily reach even the most challenging places. If it’s easy mobility you’re after, our range of van-mounted and truck-mounted cherry pickers strikes the perfect balance between reach height and manoeuvrability!
