Fast Plant, based in the UK, is expanding its fleet of Lithium-powered tracked booms with two Hinowa Lightlift 17.75 and one Lightlift 20.10.

The units, supplied by UK distributor APS - part of the IAPS Group, join its existing 20m and 26m Hinowa booms with Lithium-Ion battery backs.

Paul Gurton, sales and transport manager for Fast Plant, said, “The 17.75 fills a gap in our range and helps us to meet growing customer demand for Lithium-powered lifts.

“The Hinowa machines are increasingly requested for internal cleaning and maintenance work on atriums, such as in airports and shopping centres.”

Fast Plant offers the booms for hire with or without an operator nationwide. With a travel width of less than 0.8m and stowed height of less than 2m, the Hinowa Lightlift 17.75 can pass through narrow doorways. The outriggers self-level at the touch of a button.

This latest investment takes Fast Plant’s fleet to more than 150 units. Along with the growing fleet of Hinowa tracked machines, the company also offers a wide range of scissor lifts and self-propelled boom and has launched a dedicated website for its access business.
