Eco-friendly Solutions for us, for you and OUR planet!


12 June 2021



There is no hiding from the fact we are in the middle of a climate emergency, which many scientists believe is a far bigger threat than the Covid-19 pandemic. With this in mind Eagle Platforms have acted and hope we can provide the platform and initiative for some of our cherished clients to follow suit. Every little step we can take in the right direction should be celebrated and this post sets out some of the ways we can take action together to safeguard the future of our planet.

Electric Machines

low emission scissor lifts and telehandlersOur electric machines represent the vanguard of the latest technology available, blessed with industry-leading battery systems, meaning reduced maintenance and costs all coming together to reduce the carbon footprint of on-site operations. Sustainability is a key watchword and electric equipment goes a long way to helping build more sustainable operations. Electric machines have fewer components and are less likely to suffer downtime as a result. In addition, running costs are reduced and electric machines can be used both indoors and outdoors (depending on terrain and conditions). Electric machines also reduce noise levels, which can be very handy if working close to urban or residential areas.

In terms of the Eagle Platforms fleet, we can provide scissor lifts from 3m to 16m and booms from 8m to 20m all powered by electricity.

Hybrid Machines

Eagle Platforms are extremely proud to boast a comprehensive fleet of hybrid booms and scissors up to 20m, affording our customers the best of both worlds. These machines are capable of running entirely on electric, producing net zero emissions, while benefiting from the ability to switch to a fully functional diesel engine. This is very handy should you have forgotten to fully charge the unit before a big job, which we’ve all done! The ability to switch between electric and diesel also increases the flexibility of the machine for use indoors and outdoors, with zero compromise on efficiency and performance. Hybrid machines are increasingly popular thanks to this great flexibility.

Diesel Machines

Diesel and eco-friendly? Surely not! Yes, actually. Even our diesel machines have the option to boost their green profile. Eagle Platforms have taken steps to invest in machines benefiting from the very latest technology including the Stage V Low Emissions Booms from the ever-excellent Haulotte, who are constantly seeking ways to reduce emissions in their equipment. These machines are fitted with a Carbon Capture function which reduces emissions levels significantly compared to older models.

As you can see there are several ways you can make a tangible difference to your carbon footprint thanks to Eagle Platforms and our diligence in investigating and investing in the latest technology. We look forward to hearing from you with any enquiries you might have and any questions about any of our high quality fleet.
