Belfast-based Balloo Hire has taken delivery of more than 100 scissor units, in a substantial order placed with Sinoboom’s European subsidiary.

The new order is a mix of 1932ME, 2732E and 3346E battery-powered slab models, providing working heights of 7.8m, 10.1m and 12m respectively. The delivery also included the first Sinoboom 4647EP scissor platforms to arrive in the UK/Ireland region. The 16 metre working height 4647EP scissor is only 1.27m wide with a 350kg indoor rated capacity.

 Balloo Powered Access Manager Colin Magee,  pictured here with Sinoboom UK & Ireland Regional Manager Julie Houston Smyth, commented: “The first Sinoboom equipment added to our powered access fleet in Autumn 2020 was extremely well received. The product is robust, good quality and has performed very well - customers now ask for our Sinobooms by name, prompting us to further invest.”

While Julie Houston Smyth added: “We are delighted that Balloo continue to invest in Sinoboom equipment. Since Sinoboom first arrived into the UK & Ireland, the range has really grown in popularity throughout the region. Balloo Hire are a great partner who invested in the brand at the beginning of our story.”

Sinoboom is certainly finding favour at the moment. Its European subsidiary is headed by ex-IPAF CEO Tim Whiteman. While Pinnacle Platforms has exclusive rights to the equipment in Great Britain.
