Long-lasting electrophoretic paint finish, protective control box covers, bumper rails to protect decals against damage, and forklift pockets both side and rear, are all standard features in the Sinoboom electric-drive scissor range.

Colin Magee, powered access manager for Balloo Hire, 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.”

Julie Houston Smyth, UK & Ireland regional manager for Sinoboom, said, “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.”
