No fewer than fifteen brand-new pipe trolleys are ready and waiting at PDI. And what is special about these trolleys?: there are made from stainless steel. It concerns the scissor lift Qii-Lift H652, a well-known model by Bogaerts, with a platfrom height of 6,5 meters. Greenhouses are getting higher and higher and safety is very important to us. We are currently installing second screens in various greenhouses and renovating existings screens. These greenhouses often have a column height of 6 meters. To be able to work properly and safely at this height, the right trolleys are required. That is why the we ordered 15 of them.
The most special thing about these trolleys is that they are made entirely of stainless steel. This is because they are travel between different projects.Given the increasing disease pressure in the professional horticultural sector, it is extremely important to disinfect all equipment 100% before using it for the next job. Disinfectants with a high acidity level (pH 2-4) are increasingly being used. A standard double powder coating already provides a good barrier against chemical attacks on the steel structure of the scissor lifts, and the stainless steel chassis, scissors, and working platform provide even better protection against possible corrosion.
Extra innovation under the chassis
Under the chassis, there is another Bogaerts innovation. The quick-release set allows the flange wheels to be adjusted in center-to-center tube distance quickly and easily. This makes it possible to use the scissor lifts in greenhouses with different tube rails, ranging from 425 to 650 mm. In the end it was a big investement, but it is the only way to continue working in vegetable greenhouses.
