Socage adds 20m model to Speed series
By Euan Youdale25 June 2021
Socage is strengthening its new upgraded Speed series of truck mounted platform with the addition of its existing forSte 20D model.
The new Speed line, which offers automatic stabilisation as standard, front basket attachment and a larger working area, now comprises 10 models, following the introduction of the 19.6m working height 20D.
As with other units in the series, 20D Speed has fixed vertical stabilisers, in an H + H configuration, that remain inline to the truck chassis to maximise the work area.
The range’s Speed Socage allows automatic stabilisation and return to transport position, from the ground and from the basket, with a flick of a switch. Large stabilisation feet are an additional feature.
Another advantage is the front attachment of the basket. It is designed for more efficient working maneuvers and greater accuracy, reducing the risk of collision.
Specific features to the 3.5 GVW forSte 20D Speed include 9m outreach, with a maximum basket capacity of 225kg. Turret rotation is 700 degrees.
