I would be working on her paying attention to you while stuff is happening elsewhere too. If you can enlist a helper, you can have them operate the 'scary' thing while you work to desensitise her & show her that you're in control. Don't try to force her to go touch the object, but ask her to keep going past it & stopping again - sort of half circle lunging. Starting at a distance where she doesn't have much problem and gradually progressing closer as she becomes confident will allow you to practice the 'right' behaviours and minimise practicing the wrong ones. If done right, this will give her more trust & respect in you as her leader too, which will rub off on everything else.
