Lifterz has one of the largest independently-owned fleets of tracked booms in the UK. It has operated a Specialist Products Depot since 2014, providing nationwide hire of crawler-mounted booms; and built on this success by acquiring Spider Rentals in August.
Liam Stericker, Lifterz’ spider division manager, said: “Both our operators and customers really like the Hinowa product because of the ease of use and commonality of controls.”
Highly versatile and with low transport costs, tracked booms are the ideal products for demanding access applications. Features such as narrow width and significantly low ground pressure, as well as adjustable tracks, make them ideal for working in confined spaces and on a range of gradients and surfaces.
Lifterz also added another MEC 6092RT high capacity diesel scissor lift, bringing its fleet up to eight units. APS, the exclusive UK distributor for both MEC AWP and Hinowa, supplied all the machines.
The 6092RT uses MEC’s proven, 2.3m wide ‘92-series’ chassis. It provides a 20.2m working height and – thanks to its twin Ultra Deck extensions - a platform length of 7.5m. Lifterz was the first UK rental company to invest in the MEC 6092RT and has continued to see strong demand for the machine.
Standard features include MEC’s Quad-Trax true 4WD, active oscillating axle for rough terrain and auto-levelling outriggers for increased productivity. With a gross weight of 9,200kg it is easy to transport - two machines fit on a single flatbed trailer.
Lifterz is a leading independent access rental company, with a fleet of around 970 machines spread over its depots in Yorkshire, Lancashire and the East Midlands. It is a member of the Access Link, the UK’s largest national network of independent powered access hire companies, with 38 depots.
