Star Rentals Now Carries Custom Equipment Hy-Brid Lifts | Construction News

Custom Equipment, Inc., Richfield, Wis., has announced that Star Rentals, Seattle, Wash., will carry its line of HB-1230 Hy-Brid Lifts.

This gives customers greater access to low-level scissor lifts with 18-ft. working heights for a wide range of indoor applications, including electrical, drywall, and HVAC installation.

Star Rentals rents, sells, and services Hy-Brid Lifts in 18 locations in Washington and Oregon.

“We work with manufacturers that we can consider business partners, and Custom Equipment is a company that we are pleased to build a long and committed relationship with,” said Bob Kendall, president of Star Rentals. “Custom Equipment is a first-class company that stands behind their products, as well as provides a standard of excellence in the industry.”

Star Rentals sought a lift with maximum maneuverability for its rental fleet and found it with Custom Equipment’s HB-1230, which features a zero-turn radius that makes it easy to maneuver around corners and over delicate flooring.

Working heights  to 18 ft. provide optimal reach for operators working in a variety of indoor construction applications. The lift’s platform is easy to access with a low step-in height and full swing gate minimizing the risk of injury.

Its compact body — 56 in. long and 30 in. wide — allows it to fit easily through doors, inside elevators and in a pickup bed. And a slide-out extension increases the platform length by 30 in.
