CTE to launch 'new generation'
By Euan Youdale28 March 2017
Italy-based CTE is set to launch an articulated platform mounted on a pick-up.
The CTE ZED 15.2 is the first in a new generation of CTE platforms, based on high strength Strenx SSAB steel booms.
The model reaches 14.7 m working height, 6.3 m of outreach and 230 kg capacity for two operators with, with a reduced stabilization footprint and total weight of 3 tonnes.
Mounted on Isuzu D-MAX 4x4 or on Toyota Hylux 4x4, the platform is suited to rough terrain and working on slopes. Its dimensions allow it to be compact for transport and to work in narrow streets and confined spaces.
The patented H-stabilisation system with connecting rods allows the extension of the beam and stabiliser in one motion, without the help of jacks or cylinders.
Turret rotation is 360° continuous, while basket rotation is 60°left+60°right. The basket dimensions are 1400x700x1100 mm, identical to the other CTE ZED products on 3.5 tonne trucks. Controls are electro-hydraulic proportional from ground and basket.
As with all CTE ZED products on trucks, the electrical and hydraulic systems are inside the boom, protected from weather and debris and are protected from getting caught up with other elements during operations.
The first unit, with insulated fiberglass basket will be delivered in the next few days to Spain as the first in a six-unit order.
