Hinowa cleans up with boom updates

HINOWA has confirmed upgrades of two of the firm’s tracked booms in an effort to improve productivity for cleaning and maintenance contractors.

A water supply line has been added to the platforms of both the Hinowa Lightlift 17.75 and 20.10 models. Sitting adjacent to the air pipe, the manufacturer explained this 0.5 inch diameter tube has a flow of 20.7 bar.

The 0.25 inch diameter air pipe and the water supply can be activated at the same time, with the aim of speeding up operations such as cleaning roofs and gutters on public and commercial buildings.

Steve Couling, managing director of APS, the UK distributor for Hinowa explained, “This update brings the 20.10 and 17.75 in line with the rest of Hinowa’s Performance IIIS series tracked booms. Fittings for air and water lines to the basket as standard will be widely welcomed by our growing customer base in the cleaning and facilities maintenance sectors.”

The Hinowa Lightlift 20.10 spider boom boasts a working height of up to 20.1m and a maximum horizontal outreach of 9.7m. It has a lift capacity of up to 230kg.

The Lightlift 17.75 also has a platform load capacity of 230kg. This tracked boom provides a working height of up to 17m, a maximum outreach of 7.5m, and features a dual pantograph lifting mechanism to allow it to be used flush against a wall.

Both machines utilise Hinowa’s Performance IIIS system. Features include outrigger deployment, levelling and retraction with one touch of a button; auto-speed control that takes ground conditions into account; and wireless remote control.
