Hook-Up Solutions will once again be bringing their unique ‘Hooka’ machine to the Executive Hire Show.

The Hooka was launched at the 2015 Show and went down a storm!  This innovative hire opportunity is the only pick and carry crane designed to pick up any bulk building material payload (pallets or 1 tonne bags), secure the load onto its bed using its ‘load-lock’ system, and then transport it quickly into tight or uneven work sites.

At only 1 metre wide and weighing 1.25 tonnes, it offers hirers a compact, low ground damage tracked machine for the safe and secure movement of bulk materials.  Ideal where confined access means deliveries are unable to be dropped close to site, or when a piece of plant needs to be moved into a building through a restricted access.  It has a 1.5 tonne lift and carry capacity and optional extras include a dozer blade, for levelling loose materials and a hydraulic emptying ‘tote’ box, which will allow the Hooka to be used as a hi-tip dumper and even lift bricks / blocks to scaffold ‘first-lift’ height.

The Hooka  is manufactured in the UK, to maintain quality and spares pieces of mind.   It is based on a Hinowa track base and a Honda V-twin power plant to ensure reliability, and will have service back up through Alfa-tail lifts – who have a fleet of 70 service vans spread throughout the UK.
