Lifterz claims ownership of the largest independently-owned fleets of tracked booms in the UK. It has provided crawler-mounted booms through its specialist products depot since 2014 and in August 2016 acquired Spider Rentals.

The latest fleet expansion includes the new 15-metre Hinowa Lightlift 15.70 and the 17-metre Hinowa 17.75.

Liam Stericker, manager of Lifterz’ spider division, said: “Both our operators and customers really like the Hinowa product because of the ease of use and commonality of controls.”

Their narrow width, adjustable tracks and low ground pressure make them good for working in confined spaces and on a range of gradients and surfaces, he added.

Lifterz also bought another MEC 6092RT high capacity diesel scissor lift, bringing its fleet up to eight units.

All machiens were supplied by dealer APS.

Lifterz was the first UK rental company to invest in the MEC 6092RT and reports continuing demand for the machine. Standard features include MEC’s Quad-Trax true four-wheel drive, active oscillating axle for rough terrain and auto-levelling outriggers. With a gross weight of 9,200 kg, two machines can be transported on a single flatbed trailer.
