Ruthmann will add two more models to its Height Performance Steiger truck mount range this year.

The first will be the 40 m Steiger T 400, making its debut at the APEX exhibition in June. The second is yet to be announced.

The Steiger T 400 complements the existing 46 m Steiger T 460 and shares the same technical features with other models in the range.

“Work platforms in the 40 m working height range are gaining in popularity with rental companies because mobile telecommunication providers are expanding their LTE transmission networks,” said a company spokesman.

“These networks will eventually need to be maintained and serviced. In order to reach the majority of LTE towers with the greatest degree of efficiency, mobile network operators often choose truck-mounted work platforms in the 40 m working height range.” Sales of the model are already underway.

APEX takes place in Amsterdam, 24 – 26 June 2014, will be held in Amsterdam. The Steiger T 400, will be on show in the outside area, booth-number: 1230.
