The new Bluelift ST 31

The new machine is an alternative to the company’s 31 metre SA31 articulated spider lift, and uses the new five section multi-profiled telescopic boom and articulated jib from Ruthmann’s T 330 XS truck mounted lift, mounted on a rubber tracked spider chassis.

Excellent combination of Ruthmann boom technology & proven Bluelift spider knowledge. Outstanding performance in every outrigger position including narrow; even retains 400kg capacity when narrow jacked.
