Accessman Blenheim have been a sponsor of the Graeme Dingle Foundation Marlborough for over a year now. Kiwi Can is the first step of a journey that takes young people through Graeme Dingle Foundation programmes at different stages in their schooling. It sets a foundation of values and life skills that the students take with them through school and into later life. Each student visits a Kiwi Can class once a week to enjoy a positive, uplifitng environment that encourages self belief and confidence.
We have seen the great work that they do and are proud to be a supporter.
We are proud to be able to support a member of our extended Accessman family in her sporting endeavours. 
Rozie Robinson has been selected by Athletics NZ to be a member of the Oceania Polynesian Athletics team
to compete in Samoa later in the year.
This is a fantastic achievement and we wish Rozie all the best!

Hello from the City Slickers!
Introducing our new drive assist Haulotte 16 Metre (working height) cherry picker .  Accessman City has two of these fantastic machines available for hire. 
They are fully electric with a petrol engine for the on board generator  and for charging the batteries when low.  They also have power , air and water direct to the  to the basket to make every job super simple! 
Be sure to try this as an alternative to a self propelled knuckle boom if cost is an issue as these are towable to site with a 2 tonne tow bar.

Safety Tips…it’s all about helping you to Get High!!
It’s fair to say that Winter is clearly well and truly in full swing, and with the constant colder temperatures we have a few very important recommendations that will ensure your Elevated Work Platform performs as and when required.
Batteries are required to either start or operate our entire fleet of machines, and this continual wintry weather has very definite impact on operations of these machines.
  • If your EWP is a battery-operated machine, your daily pre-start inspection should include checking the water level in each of the battery cells. Please note normal tap water is fine to fill these, and they should not be over filled, but to the bottom of each of the inspection portals.
  • Please be aware that batteries give off Hydrogen which is highly flammable, so your inspection of batteries should take place in a well-ventilated area.
  • It is also recommended that both safety glasses and gloves by worn when inspecting batteries, as battery acid is highly corrosive, and can cause burns to the skin if contacted.
  • Our fleet of machines that require a 12v car type battery to start their diesel or petrol motors, also suffer in these colder conditions.
  • If the machine is a diesel, it should be ‘glowed’ prior to trying to start, and if a petrol (as in a trailer mounted cherry picker) please use the choke function prior to starting.
  • If you are unsure on where or how this glow and or choke function works, please either call us, or check the operator’s handbook located on every machine for instructions.
In closing, if the machine continues to turn over rather than start, please continue to choke or glow the machine until it starts. If the machine won’t start, its either now flooded (fuel) or the battery is getting flat, give us a call before continuing.
Here’s to an earlier Spring and Warmer Weather.
