CTE sells Zed articulated booms at Bauma
By Sarah Ann McCay19 April 2013
Italian manufacturer CTE has seen increased demand for its new ZED articulated booms, with two sales completed around the bauma exhibition, in Germany.
The first order of the ZED 20.2 HV by Swiss company Maltech was completed just days before the show, while a German rental firm bought two of the Zed 20.2 HV platforms during the exhibition.
The compact truck-mounted platform offers a capacity of 300 kg at full outreach and measures 2.5 m in height in its stowed position.
The model has been modified with a new variable jacking system, enabling stabilisation in retracted or extended, and on one side or the other. This system allows the operator to stabilise with a single command in small spaces, providing greater flexibility when working on site, said the company.
Zed 20.2 HV means 20 m of working height, and .2 is for the evolution of the new octagonal design of the boom made with Docol 1200 M high strength steel. This change was made for telescopic and pantograph boom.
