WS-Skyworker HEIGHT performance - trio09.07.2013

T460_WS_Skyworker.jpg In order to enhance its selection of truck-mounted aerial work platforms, Swiss rental company, WS-Skyworker, has ordered three STEIGER ® units from the HEIGHT performance series.  The trio – a T 540 and two T 460 models – were ordered through HUBItec, RUTHMANN’s business partner in Switzerland.

HUBItec AG has been RUTHMANN’s competent and reliable authorized dealer in Switzerland and Lichtenstein for many years. For more information on HUBItec, visit www.hubitec.ch

This is the first time that HUBItec’s Roger Wagner has been able to sell a total of three STEIGER ® HEIGHT performance work platforms to WS-Skyworker, the well-known Swiss rental company.

“In Switzerland, there is an ever-growing demand for truck-mounted work platforms in the 40 m – 70m working height range. They are needed for a great variety of maintenance jobs”, says Martin Vögtli (WS-Skyworker AG General Manager). “In order to adequately serve the needs of our rental customers, we decided to acquire three HEIGHT performance-STEIGER ® work platforms made by the market-leader, RUTHMANN.

"These STEIGER  ® models have features not found on any other truck-mounted work platform. The long upper boom, for example, gives us and our customers a decisive advantage. These work platforms provide exceptional performance at the job site.”

WS-Skyworker AG is part of the Sky Group of Companies. With over 500 machines (90 different types of rental machinery), this Basel-based company is one of the leading work platform rental companies in Switzerland. Besides truck-mounted aerial work platforms, the inventory includes a huge variety of scissor lifts, telescopic handlers, and personnel lifts.

Martin Vögtli took delivery of his first HEIGHT performance-STEIGER ® – a T 460 model – in April at the bauma 2013 trade show in Munich, Germany. The T 540 was handed over to Mr. Vögtli at the Suisse Public trade show in Bern, Switzerland in June.

The STEIGER ® T 460 and T 540 are the first two models in RUTHMANN’s extremely successful HEIGHT performance-series. The special highlight of this product line is the innovative boom system. It consists of a very long and telescoping upper boom and long, movable jib (RÜSSEL ®). Compared to other models on the market today, operators now have far greater reach capacity when working up high. This opens up entirely new dimensions at the job site.

A total of 65 models in the HEIGHT performance-series have now been sold to RUTHMANN’s national and international clientele. This is a remarkable figure considering the fact that this series was only introduced a short time ago – in the spring of 2012.

RUTHMANN will still be adding the T 380 and T 630 to its successful product line before the end of this year.
