The new Blaney vehicles are designed to be multipurpose and compact for manoeuvrability and mobility. Their size allows them to access hard to reach areas while their weight allows them to be transported under 3.5 ton. So if you’re involved in farming, plant hire, construction, equestrian, landscaping, amenities, road works or self-build, this could be the next machine for you the company claims.
Blaney Motor, based in Co Antrim is a division of the Blaney Group, which has over 25 years’ experience in design and manufacture. Established brands including Quad-X ATV equipment and Blaney Agri tractor machinery. The company aims to develop machines with innovative features to offer customers a complete solution to many tasks. Mr Blaney MD of the company says that most farmers have more jobs to do than they have time for, and with good farm labour being hard to find farmers struggle to get the help they need…until now!
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to showcase Blaney Motor’s new vehicles at the Balmoral Show and am thrilled with the feedback we have received on our compact wheeled loader range launched a few years ago and are excited to have further developed our range of vehicles which we will be showcasing at Balmoral, added Mr Blaney.
The machines are designed to be simple to operate, with all the controls at your fingertips. Blaney engineers have paid close attention to the need for farmers to hop on/ hop off quickly and incorporated a design for easy driver access.
The Blaney compact wheeled loader is equipped with a 40HP engine and hydrostatic transmission with four wheel drive limited slip differential. With a unique high capacity hydraulic system they are able to lift an impressive weight with a 1 tonne lifting capacity and an impressive industry leading 2.7m reach or 3.3m for the telescopic model. Special attention has been given to the design of this telescopic machine in transferring tractive effort to the wheels during loading or pushing material.
These compact loaders are multifunctional and can replace forklifts yet do more and tackle many of the jobs an ATV/UTV can do. Although small in size, these loaders are more than capable of most jobs many farmers do with larger more cumbersome handlers that are not suited to the job at hand.
Rather than a case of what can it do, it’s a case of what can’t it do. With Blaney’s experience in the attachment sector they offer a range of off-highway vehicles that are multipurpose and versatile, by offering a wide range of tools for the job in the form of attachments.
Around the yard and laneways the Blaney loaders are ideal for many jobs such as sweeping and hedge cutting as well as unloading, lifting and moving loads such as sand, stones, pallets and fertiliser bags. With a compact size and impressive reach the machines can be used to give access to maintenance jobs such as cleaning gutters and working at height.
