What's New in Plant & Equipment

World premier for new access platform from Ruthmann

World premier for new access platform from Ruthmann

The STEIGER T 285 from Ruthmann,made its world debut just in time for APEX, the aerial-platform event of the year. This professional truck-mounted aerial platform, designed for 7.49 t chassis, features a 28.5 m working height and impressive 21.1 m lateral reach. In its base position, the T 285 has a compact overall length of only 8.19 m.

The rigid turret, which always remains within the contours of the vehicle when pivoting, is perfectly suited for assignments in high-traffic areas or restricted access areas.

TThe new T 285 has the working-cage concept as on the T 330. The cage is spacious, provides unrestricted mobility and has a carrying capacity of 320 kg. There is enough room for 3 people with tools and equipment. The hydraulic 2 x 90° cage-rotation device and 185° swivelling range of the jib provide a high degree of mobility and versatility at the jobsite.

    Technical improvements made to the horizontal/vertical jacking mechanism include the fully-dynamic automatic adaption feature. Depending on the jacking position of the respective jack, the advanced electronic-control system is able to allocate the ideal operating range.

Even in the most difficult and cramped conditions, easy and safe positioning and operation at the jobsite are assured. The jacks are made of solid steel and can be used safely and efficiently on sloped surfaces of up to 5°.

Almost new

Although shown at another event earlier in the year (CeMAT),for many this was the first opportunity to see thethe Ruthmann Steiger T 330 with its 33 m working height and 21.2 m lateral outreach. The T 330 is available on truck chassis ranging from 7.49 t -18 t (GVW) and is an ideal aerial-platform for rental companies, gardeners/landscapers, commercial cleaners, and craftsmen.

The cage is the same size as on the T285 and has a carrying capacity of 320 kg, Total vehicle length is 8.79 m and width is 3.9 m.
