Elavation Doubles Down on Tracked Booms

Independent access rental company Elavation has added another 26m Hinowa tracked boom to its hire fleet.

The Milton Keynes-based powered access specialist has taken delivery of a second Hinowa Lightlift 26.14 Performance IIIS. This is a crawler-mounted articulated boom offering a 25.7m maximum working height (23.7m max. platform height) and up to 13.6m of horizontal reach.

Julie Hennessy, Business Development Manager at Elavation, said: “This spider lift provides extraordinary performance, enclosed in a compact machine of only 990mm width together with less than 6m length.

“We invested in a second machine to accommodate demand from the tree care, facilities management and rental fields. It has already been out on hire – in fact, our additional 26.14 proved invaluable to a customer on some recent chimney maintenance.”

Elavation purchased the machine from APS, the official UK distributor for Hinowa’s full range of tracked access platforms, mini-dumpers and compact site handling equipment.

The Lightlift 26.14 can lift 230kg – enough for two people with tools – without restriction throughout its entire working envelope. The dual pantograph boom design enables working flush with walls and the drive train has a three-speed system which ensures it reaches the work area quickly.

As a tracked boom, the LightLift 26.14 has very low ground pressure and non-marking tracks, making it ideal for working indoors on sensitive flooring; as well as outdoors on soft ground. The machine retracts to just 990mm wide for passing through doorways or in between buildings and has a transport length of less than 6m thanks to the easily detachable basket.

Elavation already supplies a range of Hinowa booms to its customers, including the 14 metre Hinowa 14.70, as well as three models with Hinowa’s advanced Lithium-Ion battery technology, with working heights of 15m, 17m, and 20m.
