Mateco invests in compact truck mount
By Euan Youdale31 July 2020
Mateco has taken delivery of a 30m working height truck mount from Ruthmann.
The new LT 301 D, which offers a 17.1m maximum outreach, is mounted on a 3.5 tonne chassis, in this case a Mercedes-Benz sprinter, which is designed to reach heights that were only previously possible before using a 7.5 tonne truck.
Drivers with the standard EU class-B driving licence, allowing the use of vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes, will benefit from the LT 301 D, which will complement the 30m working height platform in the heavier 7.5 tonne chassis segment.
The versatile LT 301 D allows three movements at the same time - lifting, swivelling and telescoping, and comes with a rotating basket. In addition, the 30m machine has a very short length, thus allowing easy manoeuvrability on site.
