JIB TRAXX

To get more value out of your jib kit and crew booking you need a Jib Traxx buggy. If you're shooting at a large location like a country park or big venue with shots  in different places setup time is key to getting maximum value from your day. Our Jib Traxx buggy is a silent electric go-anywhere vehicle with low pressure turf saver tyres. We build the jib once and get it to almost any location you like in double quick time.

TRANPORT

All jibs are LOLER tested annually and electrical equipment is PAT tested where relevant.
