Are you looking for a cost effective way to obtain access equipment and improve the safety and productivity of your site? From only £90 per week you can now have a fully maintained Star 10.

‘We originally had a Star 10 from HLS on Hire, after testing it out we felt it was what we needed. Since purchasing the Star 10 we have found the mobility and versatility of the machine great. It has been ideal for Cleaning, light fitting and general maintenance, overall we have been pleased with the results.’

Owen Jex

Services manager, Peters Food Service Ltd

 

Investing in equipment and machinery through finance has been steadily growing in the UK in recent years, with an increase of 21% in 2015 alone.

Leasing is undeniably one of the quickest and most convenient ways of purchasing for those companies that desperately need access equipment, but don’t have the finances or budget to pay out a large amount of money at once. 

 

Leasing has a number of benefits:

  • It’s cost efficient and you can purchase equipment on low monthly repayments 
  • You don’t need to pay the VAT upfront
  • You get a brand new machine delivered to you as fast as if you were buying it cash
  • At the end of the finance agreement you have a number of options to choose from
  • You get the opportunity to upgrade to the latest technology every few years rather than being stuck with outdated equipment
  • Ability to offset 100% of the rentals against your tax liability

 

Why Star 10?

  • Versatile: The Star 10 has a narrow base and the jib offers excellent outreach, making it ideal for working in and around fixed obstacles, reducing the disruption caused by both routine and reactive maintenance jobs
  • Easy to use: New single joystick operation makes Star 10 an easy machine to use, even for inexperienced operators, meaning less time spent reaching the work area, and more time spent doing the job
  • Improves safety: Star 10 can replace custom-built scaffold towers for accessing awkward areas; by removing the need to carry work tools and materials up scaffolding tasks are made safer, and operatives are less likely to suffer musculoskeletal issues from climbing and manual handling
  • Increase productivity: Due to its narrow base and outreach capability, Star 10 can replace scaffolds which need to be built every time they are required. More time on the job and less time building the access increases productivity. 2-person jobs can become 1-person jobs with Star 10

About the Manufacturer

The Haulotte Group is one of the biggest aerial work platform manufacturers in Europe. The company was initially formed by Alexandre Pinguely in Lyon in 1881 and started off as a steam locomotive manufacturer. Later on the company moved away from producing locomotives and started their work in the manufacturing of earthmoving equipment and mobile cranes, followed by access equipment. Some time afterwards the business merged with Haulotte and in 2005 it was renamed from Pinguely-Haulotte to Haulotte.
