Hird to showcase kit to diversify rental offers at hire show

Mini crane, glass lifting, materials moving and powered access sales specialist Hird will be displaying exciting equipment options at the Executive Hire Show for diversifying rental fleets.

All the kit selected delivers solutions to current challenges, including boosting productivity with smaller operational teams, meeting ever more stringent safety standards and working safely at height.

Key items of equipment Hird will have on display include: a Winlet 400TL glazing robot and a Winlet ErgoMover electric materials trolley;

Smarter and safer

Hird Sales and After-Sales Manager Carl Cooper said: “With the shortage of skilled operatives in the construction and building maintenance sectors, the pressure is on to find smarter and safer ways of working.

“Plant hire companies that want to offer those solutions are in a strong position to grow their customer base. These are the businesses we’re looking forward to meeting at the Executive Hire Show.

“We will be showcasing what we believe are excellent choices for rental companies to diversify their fleets with products at a range of price points that give them exceptional returns in terms of hire value.”

Wireless technology

The Hird technical sales team will be presenting the equipment on stand I-36 at the show being held at the Coventry Building Society Arena in Coventry, West Midlands, on the 14th and 15th of February 2024.

The Winlet 400TL glazing robot has a maximum lifting capacity of 415kg. It can lift sheets of glass directly overhead to a height of 3.63m, and has an advanced manipulator to place glass precisely in apertures with almost no manual handling.


The Winlet ErgoMover Wireless is a battery electric materials trolley operated by a wireless remote control unit. It has a maximum capacity of 1,500kg, a rotating load bed for precise placement of materials and all-terrain capability.

Impress customers

Hird will also be demonstrating the lifting power of its Ottovac battery powered hand-held glass suction cups, produced by GRABO, which have a lifting capacity of 100kg and help operatives lift and place glass manually with enhanced safety.

Carl Cooper said: “All the equipment we’ll have on display will have one thing in common – it helps make operational teams more productive and safer, while doing a higher quality job that impresses customers.”

Hird is the UK and Ireland distributor for Winlet and Righetti – and for Valla pick and carry cranes, Oil&Steel spider lifts and truck mount platforms, Locatelli truck mounted and all-terrain cranes, and 3B6 electronic control systems.

It means Executive Hire Show visitors will have plenty of interesting equipment to see and talk at the Hird stand.
