By Patrick Hill01 April 2009
Oil and Steel is launching four new models at Intermat . Following the introduction of the 20 m high double pantograph Snake 2010 Compact, Oil & Steel has been developing two new models: the Snake 1770 Compact and the Snake 2512 Compact.
The Snake 1770 Compact is, installed on a 3.5 t truck, it has a maximum working height of 17 m and maximum working of 7 m. The stabilization system called "in shape" allows the machine to be stabilized in few seconds in minimal space enabling the operator to park the platform in narrow spaces without invading the road or the pavements.
The Snake 2512 Compact is shown on an Iveco Daily 6 t. The maximum working height is 25 m and the maximum working outreach is 12 m; it has been developed to respond to the increasing request for access platforms installed on light vehicles, with a GVW of more than 3.5 t.
Also launched are two models in a new Octopussy EVO tracked range. Oil & Steel says that Octopussy 1500 EVO and the Octopussy 1800 EVO represent the evolution of the tracked spider platform. The notable features are: the multi-area stabilization system, 45° right + 45° left rotating basket, tracks enlargeable from 0.78 to 1.08 m and, in particular, the optional 45° right+ 45° left hydraulically rotating jib.
