R&R Enjoy Instant Success with Genie® TZ™-34 Boom Lift

Monday 18 January 2016 @ 09:13

General hire company, R&R Hire Services, located in Brisbane, recently added a Genie TZ-34 boom lift to its multi-brand fleet, with immediate results.

“The TZ-34 boom lift has been hired out 14 times already, and we haven’t received one service request from a client,” said Ian Rodgers, CEO of R&R Hire. “We’d get three or four phone calls weekly about other machines in our fleet.”

The purchase of the TZ-34 boom lift represents the first time R&R, which specialises in compact EWP and earth moving equipment such as trailer mounts and skidsteers, has added a Genie machine to its fleet.

“We did our research and I wanted a machine that ran on electricity,” said Rodgers. “With a petrol motor, you’ve got oil, spark plugs and fuel that have to be constantly checked. This is not an issue with a TZ-34 boom lift.

“Using an electric powered machine also means we have been able to cut the costs of servicing the motor, while the fact it will go for a few days without charging is another tick for the TZ-34 boom lift.”

Using an electric powered trailer mount also enables R&R Hire Services to reduce its carbon footprint and emissions. “R&R do a lot of work around schools,” said Kurt Kinder, Regional Sales Manager, Queensland and PNG. “Because the TZ-34 boom lift runs totally on electricity, there are no emissions, and this is another reason why R&R Hire went for this machine.”

R&R Hire Services clients are utilising the portable and lightweight Genie TZ-34 boom lift for general metropolitan work such as signwriting, window cleaning and maintenance activities. Rural clients are using the machine for tree lopping on their properties, according to Rodgers, who believes the TZ-34 boom lift’s ease of use is proving a big winner with customers.

“The TZ-34 boom lift is so simple to use. It has two buttons and an audible alarm that tells you when it’s good to go – and if you haven’t got it quite right, there is another alarm that alerts you to a problem,” he said. “On the scale of one to ten, with ten being very happy, I’d rate us a 15 in relation to the Genie TZ-34 boom lift.”

The TZ-34 has been so successful for R&R, with customers requesting the electric model, that they have placed an order for another one.
