New access manufacturer Catamout will be exhibiting at APEX for the first time, with the launch of a tracked boom, the Catamount 25.10.
The machine, to appear at next week's show, has a working height of 10m, with a total weight of 2500kg. Its key advantages are that no outriggers are needed, and it is transportable using a tow capacity of 3500kg. It offers a fuel efficient Yanmar engine and the latest operator and safety technology.
Company owner Caspar van Woerden grew up in Ontario Canada, and founded Catamount in the Netherlands in July 2015, after moving to country in 2007. The products are built in its production facility in the Netherlands and the planned product range for the foreseeable future will be several models ranging from 2500kg to 10000kg.
“There is a growing demand for a light weight compact aerial track lift in Europe,” says Mr van Woerden, “In the last factory which produced similar machines in Japan has discontinued their line of aerial lifts. We saw this as an opportunity to fill the gap. Together with a group of engineers and end users we formed a team to design and build the ultimate compact Track lift which meets todays safety and market requirements.”
