Northern Irish rental company Balloo Hire Centre - a division of Briggs Equipment - has taken delivery of the first 15 units of a 50 unit order for 19ft Sinoboom 1932 slab electric scissor lifts, the first Sinoboom machines to be sold in the UK.
The 50 units include a mixture of direct electric wheel drive models which include the 1932ME and traditional hydraulic wheel motor drive machines the 1932MH. Balloo said that the purchase is part of its preparations for the growing demand expected to be generated by large projects in Ireland.
The 1932M - also known as the 0608M - offers a working height of 7.8 metres, a platform capacity of 230kg and a platform rating of two people inside and one outside. Overall width is 810mm while the machine weighs 1,575kg.
Powered access manager Colin Magee and fleet manager Paul McClelland took delivery of the first batch of new units at the company’s head office in Belfast from Julie Houston Smyth, UK & Ireland regional manager for Sinoboom.
Magee said: “When looking to expand our electric powered scissor lift range, we decided on Sinoboom’s machines as a great choice for our customers who are wanting the most efficient option combined with the latest technology for working at height. We’re impressed with the quality and are very much looking forward to a long-standing and fruitful relationship with Sinoboom.”
Houston Smyth added: “We are delighted that Balloo Hire have chosen to place their valued order with Sinoboom and have entrusted us to meet the specific needs of their battery scissor fleet. The quality and performance of the Sinoboom product range so far in Europe speaks for itself and we are confident that this equipment will perform incredibly well in the field and ultimately result in a great investment for Balloo Hire.”
