    Access equipment shines as Australian solar industry heats up

    Published on 5 March 2019, Tuesday, 4:12 AM

    Australia's solar industry had been gradually gaining momentum for years, but after incentives went into effect that actually paid electricity users for any extra power that was generated, the sector grew like no one had expected.

    Solar rooftop installations flourished more than other systems during the incentive program period, and the country recently celebrated its 1 millionth solar rooftop. To put all these in place, solar companies require fleets of tools and products, at times using access equipment to raise panels up to where they'll be fixed to roofs by workers.

    With the number of installations expected to remain stable in the near future, the demand for access equipment, such as boom lifts, manlifts and scissor lifts, will likely remain high.

    Kennards offers a wide range of access equipment to take on any rooftop job, solar or otherwise. Boom lifts, one of the more popular pieces of hire equipment, can range from small and lightweight to large and sturdy.

    Use these machines for any project that requires elevation, and coming from Kennards, you'll know it's from a trusted brand that prioritises customer satisfaction and safety.
