Already Hires takes on new Hinowa dumpers
By Sarah McCay30 July 2014
UK rental firm Already Hire has ordered two Hinowa HS701 dumpers and will become the first UK owner of the new tracked mini-dumper when it takes delivery.
The new Hinowa mini-dumper is designed for loading skips. Already Hire, which operates across London and the M25 area, plans to rent the machines to its customer base of rail contractors, including contractors working on Crossrail and the London Underground.
Trevor Goodwin of Already Hire said: “When it comes to underground rail, these compact Hinowa machines can access areas that are impossible to reach with bigger dumpers. Also the narrow width means they fit comfortably between the rail tracks, making it easier and safer to move them around.
“For similar reasons they are in demand with builders, especially for construction or renovation jobs where a bigger dumper just can’t get behind a building. The compact height also means that the HS701 fits in a van, helping us to minimise transport costs.”
The HS701 is a diesel-powered, 0.29m³ capacity dumper with a mast-type hi-tip feature, enabling it to load skips up to 1.35m high. Specifications include a 7kW (9.4HP) Kubota engine, two-speed gearbox, and a top speed of 3.8km/h. Measuring 758 mm wide, the dumper can comfortably pass through a garden gateway or standard door. Load capacity is 550 kg to heights of up to 1.35 m and the bucket can be tilted by up to 88˚.
Already Hire purchased the two HS701s from APS, the exclusive UK distributor for all Hinowa construction, lifting and materials handling products.
