JMS has added a Hinowa Lightlift 33.17 Performance IIIS spider boom
The first lithium-ion powered Hinowa Lightlift 33.17 Performance IIIS spider boom in the UK has been delivered to powered access hire specialist JMS.
The fast-expanding rental company has snapped up the machine which combines the benefits of lithium battery technology with the compactness, lightness and performance of Hinowa booms.
Access Platform Sales (APS), the exclusive distributor for Hinowa products in the UK, supplied the tracked spider boom to JMS.
APS managing director Steve Couling says the Hinowa Lightlift 33.17 spider boom has generated significant interest in the UK in the short time it has been on the market. "This is in line with the growing demand for lithium-ion electric spider lifts, as they challenge diesel booms for power efficiency and operating time while delivering zero-emission and low-noise operation.
"This gives our customers two spider booms in one because the Hinowa Lightlift 33.7 is just as at home putting in a long shift on external projects as it is working at height indoors.
"Greater flexibility and productivity translate into better cost control, combined with the sustainability and reputational benefits that flow from low carbon footprint and fume-free operation."
JMS managing director Mark Jackson says: "The Hinowa 33.17 will allow our clients to complete roof inspections from one or two locations, where previously the task may have needed multiple machine moves.
"Taller lithium electric booms, like the Hinowa Lightlift 33.17, now also represent a very credible alternative to diesel booms for a wide range of external working-at-height projects."
