The 11th Executive Hire Show is opening its doors to hire industry professionals on the 8th and 9th February 2017 at the event’s established home at the Ricoh Arena Coventry UK – in the heart of the Midlands.

Expect to see the biggest name suppliers to the UK hire industry at the 2017 show which has over 185 exhibitors – of these more than 50 are brand new to the event.

What’s new? – A look at some of the Cranes & Access products being launched at the Executive Hire Show.

The MFC750’s ultra-short wheelbase has already been used to good effect to install glazing panels at BBC White City, in West London.

Hird is giving its customers two new mini floor cranes for the price of one with the new Wienold MFC750. The machine is available exclusively from mini crane, glass lifting and access hire specialist Hird – and goes on show in the UK for the first time at the Executive Hire Show.

It is expected to impress visitors from the FM, building fit-out and construction sectors needing a crane that combines easy-to-use, highly compact design and impressive lifting performance.

One of the key advantages of the Wienold MFC750 is that it is, in effect, two counterbalance mini floor cranes in one. In its MFC 750Ks set-up – known as the Shorty – it is just 650mm wide and 1200mm long, yet can lift up to 475kg. It can also be adapted on-site by adding extension legs, that turn it into the MFC 750K, with a maximum lift capacity of 900kg. Yet it is still only 1800mm long.

Hird’s glass lifting team worked with German manufacturer Wienold to design the mini floor crane. Hird Director John Wilding says: “Our aim was simple. Create a mini floor crane that is as compact as possible but which can lift as much as possible.

No other counterbalance floor crane in the UK can do what the MFC750 can do in terms of flexibility, compactness and lift performance. In fact, for that size of load it can lift, we think it is quite probably the best-performing mini floor crane in the world.”

BoSS BS1139:6 compliant Linked Tower Scaffold and Cantilever systems at the EHS

WernerCo is a leading manufacturer and distributor of access towers, podiums and low level work systems – the company showcasing its BoSS range at the Show.

BoSS will feature a range of working at height solutions during the two-day event, giving visitors the opportunity to see first-hand the market leading products available on the market.

Taking centre stage on the stand is the new BoSS BS1139:6 compliant Linked Tower Scaffold and Cantilever systems. These tower builds utilise standard BoSS components in order to create more complex structures for specialist applications. The Linked Tower Scaffold provides access over and across obstacles whist the Cantilever system creates a safe working platform from the tower when the main structure cannot be located alongside the point of work.

New on display this year is BoSS’ braced StairMAX700, which has been designed for commercial and domestic stairwells, featuring a working height of up to 13 metres and is ideal for internal and external use.

Sophie Ellam, Product Manager, said: “It’s great to be at the Executive Hire Show again, giving us the perfect platform to showcase our extensive BoSS portfolio. Whatever the job, we have a range of products available that will get the job done safely and efficiently. Throughout the show our experts will be on hand to answer any questions, provide product demonstrations and offer advice.”

CLM Construction Supplies will be showing Imer hoists.  All Imer scaffold hoists now lift 30m as standard and have integral motor brake technology to reduce repair costs. Also new is the 500kg builders’ gantry hoist in 110V with a lift height of 42m, which can be fitted with an internal gantry beam for erection within scaffolding. Other additions include the UP5 battery powered access platform offering working heights of up to 5.3m and a range of rechargeable LED battery lights and step lights as an alternative to festoon lamps.

Euro Towers will be exhibiting its new range of products at the show.

Euro Towers will be exhibiting a number of new products at the show, a new addition to the popular Stepfold podium range, the Stepfold 500, offering a very handy platform level of 0.5m and the new Stepfold 3, offering a much-required platform level of 2m.

On show will also be some new accessories to support the ongoing hire of products in relation to current health and safety standards, in particular the new Tilt’N’Go Anti-Surf safety pack that includes a specially designed castor / leg configuration that is an alternative option for all low level folding units and podiums.

Euro Towers MD and former chairman of PASMA and the PASMA technical committee, Roger Verallo, will be available to discuss the latest industry standards and revisions.

On the Kranlyft stand visitors can expect to see the new model MK1033CW

Kranlyftis the distributor and supplier for crane sales, crane parts and crane hire of Maeda Mini Cranes.  Its Maeda range of mobile cranes, spider cranes and crawler cranes, MC104, MC174, MC285, MC305, MC405, MK1033,  MC815, LC383, LC785 and CC1485 – span maximum crane lifting capacities from 1 to 8 tons.

On the Kranlyft stand visitors can expect to see the new model MK1033CW-1 is unique in the range, being a knuckleboom type crane. The addition of this new crane enables Kranlyft and Maeda to become an even greater force in the growing glass-handling market, petrochemical industry, and many other projects where the use of a hydraulic jib is required such as maintenance inside factories.

The new crane is a narrow aisle, operator-controlled crane like the rest of the MC range, but with the advantage of a hydraulic 6 section luffing boom and jib. This gives the crane a serious “up and over” capacity, making it easier to perform many tasks such as installing glass in windows frames, lifting over pipes in narrow spaces and placing Dormers and Velux units on top of roofs.

The MK1033CW-1 is still narrow enough to fit through a standard doorway, being 75cm wide and less than 2m high. The overall length is 2.73m and it weighs 2.09kg in order to fit in construction elevators.

The small knuckle boom has a maximum capacity of 0.995t,  maximum working height of 1.3m and maximum working radius of 9.9m, making this is a truly versatile machine.

The basic model has a diesel engine and comes with a fixed crane hook on the end of the boom to reduce the distance between the top of the boom and the hook, again very important for work in confined spaces such as indoor glass-mounting or working under roof extensions. There is an optional winch available to make the crane as flexible as possible for different types of jobs. Additional options available are Petrol, Petrol/LPG engines, or 380-400 volt electric motor, as well as advanced options to the display such as GPS.

Ninth consecutive year at the EHS for Lyte Ladders

Lyte Ladders & Towers will be exhibiting at the Executive Hire Show 2017 for the ninth consecutive year. Lyte will be exhibiting the latest products to reach the access industry ranging from Glass Fibre Towers to shelf ladders. Lyte’s core product range will also be on display to give the visitors a wider view of the products that are available.

It will be Lyte’s 70th Anniversary and to celebrate the company is planning to officially launch its new fully tested and BSI certified Stair Tower and PAS250 certified Podium which will take centre stage on this year’s stand.

Lyte also offers nationally accredited training courses on the use and maintenance of both ladders and towers such as the PASMA course.

UK based, Niftylift is one of the largest manufacturers of mobile elevating work platforms in Europe.

Look out for the Niftylify 120T-9 at the Show

At the EHS Niftylift will be showing the new Nifty 120T. The Nifty 120T is a compact and manoeuvrable trailer-mount that can be towed easily by a small commercial vehicle or 4-by-4. With a 12.2m working height and 6.1m outreach, it utilises a telescopic upper boom to give up-and-over access to hard-to-reach locations, as well as low-level outreach where it’s often needed most.

Russon Access will launch its latest range of low level access machines, including the Ixolift 400, which has a working height of over 4m and a capacity of 150kg. It has no batteries, chargers, motors, pumps or electrics. It is ready to go to work both indoors and outdoors, requires no setup time and is virtually maintenance-free.

Also on show will be the latest version of the Powerlift, which can be operated by a cordless drill. It has a working height of up to 6.40m and a 160kg capacity. Setup time is less than one minute.

Snorkel will introduce the S3010E mini scissor lift at the Show

Snorkel UK, the sales and service provider for Snorkel lifts in the UK and Ireland, will introduce the S3010E mini scissor lift at the Show, a self-propelled machine that can lift one person with tools up to 3m. It includes saloon gates, and proportional controls, yet weighs just 495kg. Suitable for the tool hire industry, it is designed to provide a safe and productive low-level work at height solution that can be easily transported. Equipped with skid steer, the S3010E is easy to manoeuvre and has a zero inside turning radius.

New exhibitor Stanley Handling’s powered

Look out for the Stanley Sprinter at the EHS

Stairclimbers are designed specifically to help the user safely transport heavy and awkward items up and down stairs. They can also be used to load vehicles, and each machine has been made with users in mind. For example, the Stanley Sprinter is the lightest and most compact model available and can handle weights of 110kg to 170kg. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the PowerMate M2B which can tackle loads of up to 680kg.

One of the company’s bestselling products is the Power Mate L1; which has the ability to climb any size step up to almost a metre high, including into the back of ‘Transit’ vans and low loading vehicles. This allows the L1 to act as a ‘mobile tail-lift’, loading items weighing up to 295kg into the back of vehicles without the expense of hiring a fork lift or a vehicle with tail-lift.

The Executive Hire Show takes place on 8th & 9th February 2017 at its established Ricoh arena home.  Registration is open to visitors – and it’s FREE!
