New truck mounts at SAIE

By Maria Hadlow16 October 2008



Among the new products at SAIE are truck mounts from CTE, Cela, and Oil and Steel.

Gabrielle Valli of CTE is adamant that the Z21J 21 m working height articulated boom for 3.5 t chassis is the only machine of its size and type on the market with a jib. The jib provides the machine with additional up-and-over flexibility.

Also on show from CTE was the Z26J a 26 m working height articulated boom with a jib, mounted on a 6 t chassis. This machine is expected to be available Europe-wide in the first quarter of 2009.

Cela­ s new machine is a 27 m working height, double articulated boom with a jib mounted on a 5.6 t chassis. Nicola Manfrinato, commercial director said that the TP J270 was the first machine in Europe with this configuration and the company expected to sell 80 to 85 units a year.

Mr Manfrinato told AI that a 22 m articulated boom with jib on a 3.5 t chassis would be available from Cela from the beginning of next year.

Oil and Steel's Snake 2010 compact truck mount has a doble pantograph boom which takes the operator to a maximum working height of 20 m. On a compact base (2.4 m high and 5.79 m long) the model is designed for applications in confined spaces. With the innovative Gecko stabilistation system the Snake 2010 is particularly suitable for use in city streets," said Paulo Balugani, Oil & Steel's technical director, "It is ideal for lighting, maintenance, roofing painting any application where there is confined space."

Mr Balugani predicted sales of 300 to 400 Snake 2010 a year and told AI that 50 machines are already ordered.
