Hinowa expansion for Extreme
By Euan Youdale12 November 2015
Extreme Powered Platforms has taken delivery of the latest Hinowa, a 26.14 Lightlift, which was launched earlier this year. It has also invested in a Hinowa Lightlift 17.75 Lithium.
Both machines are based at Extreme’s West London, UK, depot, which opened in April. The company purchased the booms from APS, the official UK distributor for Hinowa.
Stuart Bond, Extreme's managing director, said, "We have had Hinowa tracked booms in our fleet now for over a decade. Our customers rely on Extreme Powered Platforms for innovative and cost-effective working at height solutions. Adding a lithium-ion machine to our fleet enables us to fulfil growing customer demand for quiet and clean operation inside buildings and in public places.”
The Hinowa 26.14 offers as maximum working height of 25.7m as well as providing horizontal reach of 13.6m and 10m of up and over reach. The 17.75 Performance IIIS has a 17.06m working height and 7.5m of unrestricted outreach. Both can lift 230kg, enough for two people with tools.
