Ruthmann announces 4th generation lifts
German based truck mounted aerial lift manufacturer Ruthmann is to launch four new 4th generation Steiger TB machines at Bauma, including the 27 metre unit on a 3,500kg chassis.
The Steiger TB270 concept machine was shown at Platformers Days show in Hohenroda last year and this will be the first of the new generation machines to be launched.
The TB270 will feature a 27 metre working height and be available on a variety of 3.5 tonne trucks. Ruthmann says that as with the current 3rd generation TB series models (which will remain in production) more emphasis will be put on off-road capability and load capacity.
There will be three other models in the new line up. The features of the TB 270 will be integrated into two of these - the 23 metre TB 230 and the 19 metre TB 190. Ruthmann is also launching a completely new boom system and will be seen on the Steiger TBR 200, a 20.5 metre telescoping boom platform with 110 degree rotating jib.
