Oil&Steel in Italy has launched the 20 m working height 2010 Compact to expand its Snake line of 3.5 t truck mounted platforms to four models. The new model fits, in terms of size, between the Snake 189 and Snake 2112 Smart models but offers a different working envelope and a novel stabilization concept.

The machine's double pantographic, steel, lower boom sections rise to an almost vertical position to provide 10 m of only vertical movement of the basket. Oil&Steel achieved this, an industry first said the company, by making the elevating mechanism's actuator rods of equal length.

Maximum outreach with the 2010 Compact's telescoping boom is 10 m with maximum payload of 200 kg. Boom rotation of 360º and ±90º rotation of the aluminium basket also contribute to the new model's access flexibility.

Stabilizers, whose ‘feet' deploy hydraulically from their legs to support the carrier, bear the name Gecko. Operators can cover the feet and their 300 mm diameter load distribution plates with engineering plastic protectors to shield the machine from contact with passing traffic when on the job.

The machine is fully hydraulically controlled, and all piping and cabling runs through the interior of boom sections. More obvious is the single-section frame, covered by a non-slip aluminium top, and the double bends of the frame side sections.

Oil&Steel demonstrated at the new model’s debut during the company’s annual Open Day in July in Modena and said first deliveries will be in October.
