UK-based rental company Elavation Platforms has spent more than £1 million ($1.2 million) on a fleet of new spider platforms, from Italian manufacturer Hinowa.
Elavation Platforms ordered the new machines from Hinowa’s UK & Ireland distributor, Access Platform Sales (APS).
According to APS, the tracked platform order is the largest it has received this year for Hinowa units.
APS managing director Steve Couling said, “We’re delighted to be able to support Elavation Platforms as it takes this important strategic step.
“The confidence Dan and his team has in Hinowa reflects its position as the leading spider platform brand in the UK, a position built on clear performance advantages.”
Elavation Platforms, which is headquartered in Milton Keynes, has already taken delivery of two Hinowa Lightlift 26.14 Performance IIIS spider booms and a Hinowa Lightlift 17.75 Performance IIIS.
According to APS, a number of models from across the Hinowa tracked platform range will be delivered to the rental company over the next few months. While the exact number of machines in the order has not been disclosed, a Hinowa TeleCrawler13, with all-electric drive motors is among the models due to be delivered.
Elavation Platform’s fleet of Hinowa spiders will be managed by the company’s newly-appointed specialist equipment manager, Mandy McClement-John.
Elavation’s operations manager Dan Gonzalez said, “We’re very confident that Hinowa spider platforms, backed by the service provided by APS, are the right choice for us.”
