CTE's Z21 articulated boom goes into production
By Maria Hadlow23 July 2008
The Z21 20 m, articulated platform is now in production at CTE's Rovereto plant in Italy. The company believes it has combined a range of features to create a versatile, user-friendly, reliable and safe machine.
The design of the double pantograph, telescopic arm and the independent jib aim to give the user access to a very large work area. The 6-way proportional controls allow the operator to carry out more than one manoeuvre at a time over the 3600 rotation. The double pantograph connected to the jib provides an 9.2 m outreach giving access to otherwise inaccessible areas.
The pipes and pistons have been located inside the arms to protect them from damage and the barsket is made from a composite material for good shock resistance and electrical isolation.
CTE said that is proud of its Z 21 machine and that it has been able, as promised, to bring it to the market within the first half of 2008.
