Balloo Hire has taken delivery of two Genie S-80 J Trax boom lifts - the first in the island of Ireland.

The compnay will use the extreme offroad units in a variety of settings, including construction sites, television and film sets and utility-related jobs.

The S-80 J Trax is the only tracked boom in its height class, with a maximum working height of 26.5 and an unrestricted lift capacity of 300kg. A 1.83m jib provides additional flexibility, while the Trax delivers lower contact pressure, reducing damage in sensitive ground conditions like wet grass, mud, sand and snow, and providing access to harder, uneven land, such as gravel, rock, concrete and asphalt.

Colin Magee, Powered Access Manager for Balloo Hire, said, “We also believe in continuous improvement and meeting the diverse needs of our customers. Our investment in providing a modern and reliable fleet reflects our commitment in not only delivering exceptional customer service but also positions us as a leader in the equipment rental industry.”

The Genie Trax booms are engineered with a patented track and axle system that features four independent triangular steel tracks encased in rubber at each corner of the unit. With a 30° steer angle, the system offers the maneuverability of a traditional front-wheel steer machine, while each triangular-shaped track swivels 22° up and down to maintain constant contact with the ground. The patented design has four independent tracks that swivel vertically up to 20° to create a smooth ride in rough conditions.
