HBV adds new Snorkel lifts to fleet

German rental company Hydraulik Bühnen Verleih (HBV) recently added new Snorkel aerial work platforms to its fleet, including S1930E electric scissor lifts, Snorkel’s trailer mounted boom lift TL37J, and the first S3970RT compact rough terrain scissor lift in Germany.

Located in the Northwest region of Germany, HBV is a machinery rental and sales company that focuses on new and used equipment including trailer platforms, boom lifts, truck lifts, scissor lifts, and forklifts.  It services both commercial and private customers in Germany. 

HBV bought two Snorkel T66JRT’s telescopic boom lifts in 2009.  They were impressed by the Snorkel booms’ stability and reliability, and as such, HBV decided to expand its fleet by purchasing the additional Snorkel scissors and trailer boom lifts.  The electric scissors were rented immediately after delivery to a jobsite near Spelle. 

Mr Sommer, CEO at HBV, took delivery of the lifts from Roman Heindl, sales manager for German-speaking countries for Snorkel.  The S3970RT and TL37J were transported using a Multi Truck, which is a self-designed product from HBV that can transport up to 11t on its platform.

Sommer said, “I was impressed by the Snorkel booms which have been very reliable and are well-liked by our customers for their simple and intuitive controls.  The scissors and trailer booms share the same attributes and are a positive addition to our fleet.”

Heindl said, “HBV is a well-known and well-regarded rental company in Germany and across Europe.  Equipment quality and reliability are key to their reputation and we are thrilled that Mr Sommer has chosen to invest in Snorkel lifts.”
