The order is a mix of battery and bi-fuel powered units from Hinowa’s Performance IIIS series. Models include the 14-metre Goldlift 14.70, 17-metre Lightlift 17.75, 20-metre Lightlift 20.10 and 26-metre Lightlift 26.14.
Nationwide Platforms operations director Peter Douglas said: “This is an important investment in a specialist area of the market that has seen significant growth over recent years. We fully expect this growth to continue with this investment helping to cement our position as the UK's leading access specialist.”
Upon delivery a Goldlift 14.70 was immediately sent out on hire, where it was craned onto the 11th storey of the Dollar Bay residential development project in Canary Wharf, London. The unit was chosen due to its weight (1,750 kg), compact size and lower point loadings.
Lightlift models also have a new basket design, a single key starting system and Hinowa’s RAHM remote monitoring system.
