Hird Sales to showcase kit to diversify rental offers at hire show

Hird Sales at the Executive Hire Show - Coventry - 2024 - hero

The Hird Sales team is looking forward to displaying exciting equipment options for diversifying rental fleets at the Executive Hire Show.

The equipment selected to take to the show is designed to solve urgent worksite challenges, such as improving productivity with smaller operational teams and meeting ever more stringent safety standards.

Key items of equipment Hird Sales will have on display include: a Winlet 400TL glazing robot; a Winlet ErgoMover electric materials trolley; a Quattrolifts Express 200S glass lifter; a Righetti CL-W cladding lifter; and an Oil&Steel Snake 2010H Plus truck mounted platform.

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 Quattrolifts Express 200S is a low-cost, push-around glass vacuum lifter with a maximum capacity of 200kg. It can transport and install glass sheets measuring 3660mm x 1500mm and has a side-shifter for precise placement.

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.

Hird Sales is supplying 45 of the electric trolleys to Dogger Bank Wind Farm Operations and Maintenance base to support equipment and materials movement across the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

The Righetti CL-W cladding lifter is one of a range of versatile and powerful cladding lifters available from Hird Sales. It has a maximum capacity of 375kg, with smart controls for extending battery life and keeping loads safe.


Appearing in the show’s external display area will be the Oil&Steel Snake 2010H Plus truck-mounted platform. Extremely compact and stable, it provides a maximum working height of 20m, with a maximum outreach of 10.2m, and a basket capacity of 225kg.

Impress customers

Hird Sales will also be demonstrating the lifting power of its Ottovac battery powered hand-held glass suction cups, produced by GRABO.

They 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 Sales 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.
