Ruthmann's new Steiger T330 attracted a lot attention when it premiered at the CeMAT show in Germany, resulting in a number of orders worth, says the company, "millions of Euros."

The Steiger T330 is a 33m working height machine on a 7.49t chassis, it has a 21m outreach. The machine has a modern multi-bent profile boom system made of fine-grained steel. The rigid turret functions independently without any additional hydraulic mechanisms. When pivoting, the turret remains within the contours of the vehicle at all times.

Lifting, pivoting, and telescopic movements can be controlled and carried out at the same time on the T330 for fast positioning.

With a total vehicle length of 8.79m and marginal 3.9m wheelbase, the Ruthmann Steiger T 330 is compact and easy to handle when working in congested urban areas.

The cage concept is also new on the Steiger T 330, the carrying capacity of 320 kg can accommodate up to 3 people with tools, square profile steel has been used for greater cage stability. In addition, there are a standard built-in cage cleaning port and a tool-storage facility

The variable H-shape (horizontal/vertical) outrigger mechanism permits one-sided, complete, or narrow jacking. Positioning at inclinations of up to 5° with automatic range limitations for stabilising on slopes, assures easy handling and safety at the job site. The T330 can either be mounted onto a MAN or Mercedes base vehicle.
