Teupen will launch the 24 m Leo24GT at the Intermat exhibition, taking place in Paris, France, during April.
It follows the 21 m Leo21GT, which was launched in 2014 and provides an additional telescope section in the lower boom.
Both models have an outreach of 12 m in the entire working area with a 250 kg basket capacity.
The minimum transportation dimension will be exactly identical: 1.99m height, 0.98m width and 6.40m length – only 5.00m without the detachable basket.
The Leo24GT is a bit heavier than the Leo21GT, says the company, but features like height- and width-adjustable track chassis, as well as the detachable and 180° rotatable basket are available for both models.
Instead of the standard cable control set, both models now come with an optional radio remote control that control all machine functions.
The Leo24GT will also include a new basket, first shown as a prototype at last year’s APEX exhibition, “With the new concept we have created a sturdy and high-quality basket that can be disassembled into its single components – an enormous cost reduction potential if the alternative would be to replace the entire basket instead, “explained Teupen CEO Michael Scheuss.
Another design concept on trial at APEX has also made it into series production. The new battery drive will be shown on the Leo21GT at Intermat. Installed in the same compartment as the regular combustion engine, the battery pack consists of four Lithium-Ion cells which supply the machine with a voltage of 48V and a charge of 120Ah.
It takes 2 hr, 15 mins to charge to 100% - intermediate charging is also possible. Furthermore, due to the Lithium-Ion technology, there will be no memory effect. The battery option will be available with six Leo models from the Leo15GT, up to the Leo24GT.
Mr Scheuss added that both the latest models combined innovative technology with market leading performance data. "At the same time the very high degree of similarity offers advantages in user training, maintenance and spare parts support – a clear benefit not only for rental companies."
