MUNICIPAL SOLUTIONS

Elliott’s government users face a unique set of challenges, including safety and maintenance concerns and time and budget constraints. We work hard to recognize each of these challenges and provide solutions.

Safety: Elliott machines are designed, built & tested to comply with all ANSI, ASME & OSHA regulations, and Elliott engineers actively participate on the committees that develop these standards. Elliott products offer outstanding structural stability and their telescopic ‘point and shoot’ design is intuitive and minimizes articulated tail-swing in traffic.

Budget: Elliott machines are multifunctional, so one Elliott machine can take the place of two or more machines in the fleet. Elliott is a Sourcewell supplier and also offers a variety of leases and financing to allow machines to be purchased with little to no upfront cost.

Efficiency: Elliott users rave about the increased productivity and functionality. The ease of setup and ability to have all tools ready and available at height make jobs go quicker and let one crew tackle multiple assignments.

Maintenance: Elliott machines are backed by industry’s best warranty, so they stay on the job and not in the shop. Local Elliott distributor service and support takes care of the rest.

Financing & The Sourcewell Advantage

We are proud to offer competitive, creative and flexible financing solutions. In addition, we have partnered with Sourcewell to offer government agencies a nationally leveraged, competitively bid contract. National contract purchasing provides considerable time and resource savings by streamlining the contracting process.

Safety Tip: FALLS

To prevent a fall, try bending your knees a little and taking slower and shorter steps to increase traction.

If you find yourself falling, try to relax and fall as limply as possible. Try to avoid landing on your knees, wrists, or spine and fall on a fleshy part of your body, such as your side. Avoid using your arms to stop your fall.
