Dromad Hire Adds New Snorkel Lifts to its Fleet

Irish rental company, Dromad Hire, has invested in two new Snorkel A38E boom lifts, in a deal closed at Vertikal Days 2016.

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. It has recently expanded into specialised powered access hire, and in 2014 were the first hire company in Ireland to be awarded ‘Safe Hire’ status, a standard that continues to be retained.

The Snorkel A38E is an electric articulated boom lift that delivers 13.5m working height, and up to 5.9m of horizontal reach, and is fitted with non-marking tyres as standard.  It has an ultra-tight turning radius, is less than 1.5m wide, and has a 90deg hydraulically powered platform rotate for easier platform positioning at height. Weighing just 3770kg, the A38E is ideal for working indoors on floors where ground pressure is limited.

Dromad Hire managing director Seamus Byrne said, “We have been running Snorkel A38E’s in our fleet now for some time, so the machine is already proven to us. 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 specialised 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 recognised by leading hire companies, such as Dromad Hire.”

Dromad Hire has already taken delivery of the two new electric articulated boom lifts, that are now deployed within their hire fleet.
