What is access equipment?
Access equipment for working safely at heights is essential in NSW, Vic, Qld and the rest of Australia for construction-based occupations. For many cases, the use of a cherry picker, boom lift or scissor lift provides a solution for building and yard maintenance DIY tasks. With the appropriate access equipment from Coates Hire, you remain in control of operations, standards and safety for a job well done.

Access equipment gets a person to an elevated work height safely and easily. Various access equipment designs facilitate different approaches to tricky angles and hard to reach spots. Access equipment available at Coates Hire includes knuckle booms, scissor lifts, straight booms, trailer mounted booms and personnel lifts.
  1. Knuckle Booms: Also known as articulating boom lifts, are used for the up-and-over approach if you need access above or around sheds, walls or other obstructions.
  2. Scissor Lifts: Ideal in almost all conditions, rough terrain scissor lifts include large work platforms, plus manual and self-levelling functions. Coates Hire offers both electronic and diesel scissor lifts.
  3. Straight Booms: If your construction or maintenance contractor requires access equipment that reaches maximum heights, a Coates Hire's telescopic boom lifts or other form of straight boom will fit the bill without a fuss.
  4. Trailer Mounted Booms: These can be towed by a regular vehicle and used on all firm surfaces. Tree lopping, painting and cleaning are all covered with a trailer mounted boom.
  5. Personnel Lifts: Maintaining elevated fixtures in shopping and commercial centres is easy on a self-propelled personnel lift (also known as man lifts or vertical lifts) For smaller jobs, a push-around personnel lift will fit the bill.
How much does it cost to hire a cherry picker or scissor lift?
With advanced planning and permissions in place, most cherry picker and scissor lift jobs can be performed within a day or two. A few days of access equipment lift hire isn't cost prohibitive in the big picture, and there are some tasks that can only be performed with the assistance of a cherry picker, diesel or electronic scissor lift or other access devices from Coates Hire.  

Maintenance can become the greater building and infrastructure expense over time, and keeping costs down is the key to profitability. By utilising the services of your local Coates Hire depot, you have access to the right equipment whenever it’s needed. This includes cherry pickers, scissor lifts, forklifts, telescopic boom lifts and man lifts at affordable prices to help you get the job done fast.
