Briggs Equipment UK has taken delivery of its first Sinoboom electric boom lifts, delivered to its depot in Lisburn Northern Ireland.
The order includes at least four 46ft AB14EJ (AB460EJ) and some 60ft AB18EJ (AB600EJ) articulating boom lifts with working heights of 16 and 20.2 metres and maximum platform capacity of 230kg respectively. Both models feature Discover AGM sealed maintenance free batteries, AC direct electric drive and are equipped with non-marking rough terrain tyres.
Short Term Hire Manager Wayne Sloan said: “As part of Briggs’ commitment to our zero-emission strategy we have invested heavily in electric products for our short term hire fleet. The Sinoboom range is attractive as the AGM maintenance free batteries provide long term cost saving benefits, and the overall build quality and component specifications of these particular models impressed us.”
Julie Houston Smyth added: “We are delighted that Wayne has selected Sinoboom articulating booms for his hire fleet. Equipment operators expect alternatives to traditional diesel/petrol fuel rough terrain machines. This expectation is in turn driving rental companies to adapt to meet the challenge. The Briggs Equipment Group of companies’ strategy enables them to maintain their position at the forefront of these industry changes.”
