Ruthmann has launched a redesigned and more compact version of its 30 metre T 300 truck mounted platform.
The T 300 XS (Xtra Short) features an all new four section main boom plus an articulating jib to offer an outreach of 23 metres - two metres more than its predecessor - with a 100kg platform capacity. Its maximum platform capacity has also been increased by 30kg to 350kg.
Available on a variety of Euro 6 Mercedes, MAN or Iveco chassis with gross vehicle weights of 7. 5 to 8.6 tonnes, the stowed boom length has been reduced by 600mm for an overall vehicle length of 7.59 metres. Coupled with its reduced rear overhang, the company claims it is the most compact 30 metre truck mount on the market on a 7.5 tonne chassis. As a result, the T 300 XS is aimed at urban applications, ranging from building cleaning to tree pruning.
Further improvements include a complete redesign of the superstructure frame to provide weight savings and increased stability, while its two telescopic cylinders are now made from high strength fine grain steel. The base frame is also shorter.
For the first time in the T series, the T 300 XS will feature the company’s new outrigger/support operation system that has proven well on its TB/TBR series. It can also be supplied with a range pruning, insulated, 2.1 metre extra wide platforms with 180 degrees rotation as standard.
