HEIGHT performance STEIGER ® models arrive Down Under23.09.2013

Two HEIGHT performance STEIGER ® T 460 models are now part of the fleet at HIGH ACCESS HIRE – the well-known Australian work platform rental company.

As part of a comprehensive training and technical instruction programme, HIGH ACCESS HIRE, the well-known Australian rental company, has just taken delivery of two STEIGER ® T 460 models. RUTHMANN’s Area Sales Manager, Andre Gerdes, his colleague from service, Michael Gollnhuber, and NIFTY LIFT, RUTHMANN's Australian sales and service partner, were on location in Melbourne for this momentous occasion. NIFTY LIFT is responsible for customer service (training, testing, maintenance and repair) of both T 460 models and all STEIGER ® models that will be exported to Australia in the future.

HIGH ACCESS HIRE owner, John Newton, explains why he chose the HEIGHT performance-STEIGER ® models over similar truck-mounted aerial work platforms:
In the aerial work platform industry, RUTHMANN STEIGER ® stands for innovative technology, top quality, and safety standards that are second to none. In addition, the HEIGHT performance-series scores major points with technical features not found on other aerial platforms. The innovative boom concept provides the T 460 with far greater reach capacity when working up high. This is exactly what our customers are looking for.”

This family-owned business has been a professional access equipment specialist in Australia for many years. Providing personal customer advice, satisfying individual customer needs, and finding common solutions are key success factors of this well-known Australian rental company.

After the successful handover and instructional training, the RUTHMANN crew and their Australian dealer, NIFTY LIFT, visited diverse customers and interested parties on the south-east coast of Australia. Here too, the HEIGHT performance-series made quite an impression due to the enormous versatility and power. The RUTHMANN crew returned to Germany with many specific customer requests.

More roadshows and trade shows are planned as NIFTY LIFT further increases awareness of RUTHMANN products in the land “Down Under”.

The STEIGER ® T 460 is the first model in RUTHMANN's highly-successful HEIGHT performance-series. The German aerial work platform manufacturer has already sold more than 70 HEIGHT performance-models to customers around the world. That is an extremely impressive sales figure because this series has only been on the market since the spring of 2012. RUTHMANN has announced that it will be adding another model to its HEIGHT performance-series. The new STEIGER ® T 630 will make its debut in the autumn of 2013.

The advantages of both T 460 models were evident after their first assignments in Australia. The extra-long upper boom with its movable jib (RÜSSEL ®) provides amazing reach capacity when working up high.
The T 460 models were mounted on MAN 3-axle chassis to meet the Australian registration/licensing requirements. These professional truck-mounted aerial work platforms feature a 46 m working height and 31 m lateral reach.
