Dromad Hire is the first company in Ireland to add the new Hinowa 15m boom lift to its hire fleet.
The award-winning plant hire company has taken delivery of the country’s first Hinowa Lightlift 15.70 Performance IIIS. The lightweight, compact crawler-mounted boom provides a 15.4m maximum working height. With low ground pressure it is ideal for working indoors or for rough and uneven terrain.
Dromad Hire managing director Seamus Byrne said: “We are delighted to introduce the first of these new Hinowa booms to Ireland. It is vital we continue to offer our customers the most up-to-date equipment on the market. The new cutting edge features and ultra-compact design of the 15.70 really take it to a different level from traditional spider booms, allowing increased production and efficiency for the operator
Dromad’s Hinowa fleet is now comprised of 10 machines with working heights from 14m through to 26m. All were supplied by Access Platform Sales (APS), the exclusive UK distributor for Hinowa.
“All the Hinowa booms in our fleet are now Lightlift Performance IIIS models,” added Seamus. “This means that customers who are familiar with the controls on one machine are familiar with them all.”
The fourth model in Hinowa’s Lightlift Performance IIIS range, the 15.70 has compact dimensions, with an overall length of 4.02m, width of 0.78m and stowed height of 1.99m. Length is further reduced to 3.4m with the platform cage removed.
Its superb working envelope provides outreach of 6.6m while elevating to 10m, and still working flush to a wall. The machine can lift 230kg – enough for two people with tools – without restriction throughout its entire working envelope. Platform rotation is offered as standard. It has a compact stabiliser footprint of 2.8m x 2.8m, while the drive train has a three-speed system which ensures it reaches the work area quickly.
