Up and Down Lifting Solutions in Ayr, Ontario, Canada recently took delivery of their first RUTHMANN T 235 A to expand their already sizeable fleet of truck mounted aerial work platforms. Up and Down and their customers were so impressed by the unit that they quickly ordered a second RUTHMANN T 235 A to expand their fleet and provide more capacity for their rental customers. The 235 ft (72m) working height truck mounted aerial work platform has an outreach of up to 118 ft (36 m).
The working height and outreach make the RUTHMANN T235A an excellent choice for providing the needed access in multiple applications including wind, communications towers, electrical transmission, building maintenance, and any other access situations which require height, extreme outreach, or multiple articulation points. The 3-section second boom and controllable 3rd boom with 180 degree articulation between both the 1st and 2nd booms and the 2nd and 3rd booms add to the up and over flexibility and capability with a total up and over length of 66’ (20 m).
Up and Down Lifting Solution’s customers have said they are impressed by the speed, stability, and smoothness of the RUTHMANN product. They could tell by the boom shape that this was different from what they were used to using. The performance which impressed them is due to the innovative design and the materials used. These includes multi-beveled booms (rounded appearance) and high strength, fine grained steel coupled to an impressive control system.
With a platform capacity of up to 1323 lbs. (600 kg), safely lifting tools, materials, and people is no problem for the RUTHMANN T 235 A. The large platform which extends from 8’ (2.4 m) wide to 12’ (3.65 m) wide offers enough space for Up and Down Lifting Solution’s customers to complete their work efficiently while also providing electric or air to power their tools.
As with all RUTHMANN products sold in North America, the T 235 A has a third party professional engineer’s written certification to compliance with the ANSI A92.2 US safety standard and the CSA 225 Canadian safety standard. This gives the owners and users the piece of mind, comfort, and confidence of knowing the RUTHMANN T235A meets the stricter requirements of the US and Canadian safety standards versus just meeting the European standard.
