Blaney has developed an adaptable mini loader small enough to fit through the average stable door.
Launched last week at the Balmoral Show, in Northern Ireland, the Bionic S1 035 is designed to provide a powerful, low-cost assistant that can easily access areas of the agricultural or construction work site that would be difficult for other larger vehicles typically relied upon.
With a quarter of a century’s experience in manufacturing vehicles and attachments for the off-highway industry, the Ballymena-based company’s latest offering can make use of a variety of attachments depending on the task at hand.
Capable of carrying weight up to 350kg, the small machine is expected to offer assistance where larger machines are unable to reach.
Blaney Motor Company marketing manager Gillian Bonnar, said, “This versatile mini loader is ideal for working in tight and awkward areas thanks to its small size and zero turning circle.
“With a bucket capacity bigger than a wheelbarrow it is ideal for mucking out and given its ability to reach over 2m it can tip into a trailer easily, making it better than any wheelbarrow.
“The Bionic is affordable help when you require an extra set of hands for lifting and shifting, it is so compact that it can be transported in a van or small trailer.”
Powered by a 21hp-outputting Honda engine, the mini loader has an optional high flow oil drive and, unlike in a small tractor, the operator is able to have all the necessary implements in front of them.
