Friday 21 July 2017 @ 09:30

Australia’s number one family-owned supplier of high quality, hire equipment, Kennards Hire has secured seven Genie® TZ-34/20 trailer-mounted boom lifts, with more orders pending.

Kennards Hire has located its latest Genie TZ-34/20 trailer mounted booms at Thomastown and Brooklyn in Victoria. They also have units stationed at its Bundamba and East Brisbane branches in Queensland and in Penrith, St Marys and Artarmon in NSW.

Features and applications

“The Genie TZ-34/20 Metre High Platform (MHP) is a sound fit for Kennards Hire because it is rugged, yet lightweight enough to use on lawns, slate or gymnasium floors” said Mark Zimmer, National Equipment Manager, Kennards Group. “Other significant features include its extension boom with its auto-levelling capability. Also, the unit’s variable-speed control system caught our eye, together with the hydraulic outriggers with interlocks and illuminated outrigger indicators.”

Other features that appealed to the leading hire equipment business include the unit’s 359° non-continuous turntable rotation, it’s battery-powered AC power to platform, the tilt alarm/sensor and its ability to be towed easily behind a ute or 4WD. “We have also put in place a set price preventative maintenance program for all Genie booms and scissors lifts,” noted Zimmer. “The Genie TZ-34/20 MHP applications include painting, electrical and sign installation, cleaning and general maintenance.”

The Australia wide footprint of Genie and its fantastic customer support proved attractive to Kennards Hire. “Also with a complete and comprehensive preventative maintenance plan, this allows us to manage our repair and maintenance while reducing the work load at the branch level,” said Zimmer. “We look forward to having these machines in our fleet for 10 years plus.”

Reduced costs and improved ROI

The Genie TZ-34/20 trailer-mounted boom lift is a popular machine as it’s easy to tow around and there are no transport charges, noted Brent Markwell, Genie Territory Sales Manager NSW/ACT, Terex Australia. “A Genie TZ-34/20 MHP can be used for as few as 3-4 hours on site before it is towed back to base.”

The flexibility and user-friendliness of the Genie TZ-34/20 trailer-mounted boom lift, together with its relative short worksite stints makes it a relatively easy machine to maintain. “The ability to service the machine frequently and get it onto worksites easily are central to why the Genie TZ-34/20 trailer-mounted boom lift is one of the best EWPs for return on investment,” said Markwell.
