Another First for Dromad Hire - 19/01/17

Thursday, 19 January 2017 13:03:00 Europe/London

 

 

 

Dromad Hire is the first company in Ireland to add the new Hinowa 15m boom lifts to its hire fleet.

 

The award-winning plant hire company has taken delivery of two of the country’s first Hinowa Lightlift 15.70 Performance IIIS models. These lightweight, compact crawler-mounted booms provide a 15.4m maximum working height. With low ground pressure they are ideal for working indoors or on 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.

Dromad Hire takes delivery two new Skyjack 4740 battery scissor lifts, which were launched earlier in the year at Vertikal Days.

At only 1.19 meter wide the new 4047 models provide a working height of 13.80 meters, making them ideal for warehouses and factories with narrow aisles.


Speaking of the hand over Sky Jack Europe’s Sales Manager Glyn Goodwin commented “Dromad have always been very proactive when it comes to introducing new innovative machines to their fleet, and this only demonstrates the company’s commitment to deliver the most cutting edge products to their customer.”


According to Dromad Hire’s Darren Rowland “These new machines will provide that extra height wherea traditional 32ft just won’t reach and at almost the same width, they will be perfect for a lot of our existing customer applications that require extra height and now we can finally provide a solution.”
