||RUTHMANN is presenting the CITY- STEIGER ® TU 285 – its brand new aerial work platform in the 7.49 t category – at the Platformers’ Days 2014 trade show in Hohenroda, Germany.
The STEIGER ® TU 285 features a 28.5 m working height and 20.5 m lateral reach. With an overall length of just 6.96 m and height of only 3.69 m, this innovative new model is extremely compact in size. With dimensions such as these – and short wheelbase, of just 3.6 m – RUTHMANN’s newest STEIGER ® model is able to manoeuvre through the most cramped inner city conditions without any degree of difficulty. The STEIGER ® TU 285 is therefore perfect for inner city assignments including façade maintenance, industrial cleaning, roof repair, and paint work.
RUTHMANN’s new CITY-STEIGER ® was designed and developed with customers in mind. With its state-of-the-art technology, the TU 285 is also the perfect replacement investment.
The facts speak for themselves, whenever time-tested and brand new technologies merge. The innovative tower and multi-bevelled boom system, so popular on RUTHMANN’s top-sellers in the 7.49 t category (T 285.1, T 300.2, and T 330.1), can also be found on the new TU 285. The tower section has been redesigned and is now located at the rear. The fully redesigned upper boom with its 180° swivelling range, provides the TU 285 with an enormous amount of agility at the job site. The operator is able to approach objects with sensitivity and precision like never before.
With the fully redesigned upper boom and its “hanging jib”, objects can be approached with utmost sensitivity and accuracy.
As is customary at RUTHMANN, the TU 285 comes equipped with many exciting standard features. This includes the popular horizontal/vertical support mechanism. The four outriggers can be controlled using the control panel in the work cage or the alternate control on the passenger side. Optionally available are the controls located at the rear of both sides of the vehicle.
A fully variable horizontal/vertical support mechanism is also available upon request. Depending on the position of the individual outrigger, RUTHMANN's state-of-the-art electronic control system enables dynamic range adaption for maximum operational safety and efficiency. This professional work platform can even carry out assignments on sloped surfaces of up to 5 degrees..
The spacious aluminium work cage – 1.7m x 0.86 m in size – is also standard equipment on the new TU 285. There is now also a bigger work cage available upon request. Customers can order the newly enlarged 2.10 m x 0.86 m work cage. It is 1.8 sq. metres bigger than the standard cage. RUTHMANN will be presenting this new work cage for the very first time at the Platformers' Days 2014 trade show. The carrying capacity of the standard cage is 320 kg while the enlarged work cage can accommodate loads of up to 300 kg. The more spacious cage can also be ordered for the RUTHMANN STEIGER ® T 285.1, T 300.2, T 330.1, and upcoming T 190 and T 230 models.
The new CITY-STEIGER ® TU 285 complies fully with EURO 6 emission standards and can be mounted on many different truck makes and models.
The TU 285 leaves nothing to be desired and is simply the perfect aerial work platform for all powered access, inner city assignments.
