Socage machines are chosen for post-earthquake reconstruction
By Maria Hadlow06 July 2012
Following the earthquakes in Northern Italy earlier in the year, firefighters and civil protection authorities have been using the taller aerial platforms more extensively for securing buildings and reconstruction.
Socage has sold three TJJ70 70m working height truck mounts to companies carrying out this work.
In the industrial area of Mirandola, near Modena, the TJJ70 bought by Tecnogronda srl works to dismantle the Sorin Group facility - a multinational global leader in medical devices for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
In the same area LMZ Sollevamenti srl uses its machine to demolish the roof of the BM's production plant, that is a biomedical company.
Danese Autogru's TJJ70 has worked on the Gabbia's tower in the Mantova city centre and is now helping to renovate the Bondarello church.
This Socage model is very flexible with two hydraulic jibs: the second jib can be rotated 180˚ to carry out under-bridge inspections. Mounted on 32t GWV chassis the TJJ70 has a working height of 70m and maximum outreach of 36.5m. The Safe Working Load is 600kg which carries up to six operators and their tools.
