What does this trend in hybrid machines mean for business owners?

For rental companies and contractors, being able to use the same hybrid aerial lift for a project from start to finish saves the transportation cost of replacing an outdoor-only machine with an indoor-only model. Not having to switch out machines during a job is more economical for both the rental company and the end user. Avoiding that kind of switch eliminates any possibility of the rental company not having an indoor lift available when the contractor wants to make the change.

Also, using combination rough-terrain/indoor hybrid scissor and boom lifts gives a contractor more equipment flexibility to meet a project’s changing workflow demands. If, for example, a sudden need for more lifts to work inside arises, the hybrid lifts on site can be moved from outside to inside to fill the void. 

Finally, I’ve been told that some contractors like using hybrid lifts because they use less fuel than conventional diesel-powered machines. In many cases, a hybrid lift can be plugged into on-site power to recharge its batteries overnight, so the generator hardly has to run at all.
