Bravi - 100 Lites for AFI

Wed. 9th March 2011

Bravi - 100 Lites for AFI The UK’s second largest powered access rental company AFI, has ordered 100 units of the new Bravi Lite low-level self-propelled lift.

AFI worked closely with Manufacturer Bravisol to develop the new light weight ultra compact model. AFI says it was looking for a product that combined all of the benefits of a Push Around Vertical lift, the time savings and safety of a self-propelled.

The Bravi Lite is as compact as a push-around, offers a platform height of 2.2 metres/7.3ft, is just 680mm wide and weighs 398kg, yet it is fully self-propelled.

AFI chairman David Shipman said: “We have seen strong demand for PAVs and have strengthened our fleet accordingly, but we also identified the need for a self-propelled machine that would be very lightweight and highly manoeuvrable.”

“The Bravi Lite is a natural progression from the PAV concept. We worked closely with Bravi on its specification and witnessed the prototype testing. We also arranged for a customer to be present so that we could gain valuable user feedback at an early stage.”

Andrew Fishburn, joint managing director of Bravi UK, added: “When we met with AFI last year they threw down the gauntlet for us to develop such a machine and we took up the challenge. The Bravi Lite is the result of that effort”
