Multitel has confirmed that it will launch three new platforms at the Intermat show in Paris, as well as showing updated versions on two others.

The new platforms are two new truck mounted units and one new track mounted. The latter is the new SMX 250 that was shown in concept form at the company's 100 year celebrations in September - its official launch will be at Intermat.

It has a 25m working height and an 11.65m outreach but the unit weighs only 2660kg making it suitable for transport by a trailer towed behind a 4x4 vehicle. Like the company's SMX 225 it has narrow and full jacking envelopes with full 360deg rotation possible even from the narrow jacking set-up. The SMX also has a low centre of gravity, light weight and short transit dimensions.

One of the new truck mounts is mounted on a 3.5t chassis cab the other is a 42m working height unit, which is available mounted on either an 18t or 26t chassis.

The new model on the 3.5t chassis cab is the MX 210. This unit has a 21m working height and a 9.8m outreach with 200kg in the cage. Developed from the MX 200, which, says Melvyn Else of Access Industries, the UK dealer for Multitel Pagliero, is the best selling 20m truck mounted platform in Europe. The MX210 has an all aluminium alloy sub-frame to reduce weight and keep the unit "well below" the 3.5t limit.

The 42m platform is a development from the MJ320 that was launched at APEX. It has the same geometry as the MJ320 with up to a 30m outreach.

Updated versions of the Multitel MT202DS, a 20m straight boom model with permanently all in line outrigger jacking and the 160 ALU, Multitel's straight boom platform will also be on show along with other models from the company's range.
