Extreme Powered Platforms have further expanded its growing fleet of tracked booms.
Extreme have taken delivery of the latest Hinowa 26.14 Lightlift, which was launched earlier this year. It has also invested in a Hinowa Lightlift 17.75 Lithium, which is powered by advanced lithium-ion batteries.
Both machines are based at Extreme’s West London depot in Shepperton, Surrey, which opened in April. The company purchased the booms from APS, the official UK distributor for Hinowa’s full range of tracked access platforms and compact site equipment.
Extreme have had Hinowa tracked booms in their fleet now for over a decade. The build quality and ease of use is second to none, as is the support from APS.
Customers rely on Extreme Powered Platforms for innovative and cost-effective working at height solutions. Adding a lithium-ion machine to their fleet enables them to fulfill 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 – without restriction throughout their entire working envelopes. The dual pantograph boom design enables working flush with walls and the drive train has a three-speed system which ensures it reaches the work area quickly.
As tracked boom lifts they have very low ground pressure, making them ideal for working indoors on sensitive flooring as well as outdoors on soft ground. The machines retract to pass through doorways or in between buildings and have compact stowed dimensions for transport.
