    Cleaning up after storms with access equipment

    Published on 8 March 2019, Friday, 5:01 AM

    While Australians typically hire access equipment to complete DIY projects or for their contracting business, sometimes these large lifts will need to be used for a slightly more gloomy task: storm cleanup.

    Living on the coast comes with the added risk of inclement weather, and considering the bulk of major Australian cities are near the ocean, it may be wise for residents to acquaint themselves with large machinery they can use during cleanup.

    However, if any repair operations entail working with downed electric wire, be sure to leave this to the professionals. You don't want to run the risk of fatal electric shock.

    What access equipment, such as manlifts, can be great for is cutting down any tree limbs that may have snapped during high winds. Dangling limbs pose a hazard to those below, and if you're comfortable with saws and cutting tools, it's best to eliminate this danger quickly.

    Virtually any work that must be performed at high or awkward positions can be made easier with a lift from Kennards. Whether it's a boom lift, a mobile hydraulic platform or any other similar product, you'll find the right machine for the job.
