Socage to unveil new platform at Bauma

By Sarah Ann McCay02 April 2013

Italian manufacturer Socage is to launch a new 28 m double articulated platform at bauma, taking place in Munich, Germany later this month.

The new Forste 28D is mounted on a 3.5 tonne chassis, a new record for the company. The previous 28 m model, DA328, is mounted on a 5.6 tonne truck.

The new 3.5 tonne truck design means that anyone with a driving license can hire it, said the company. The Forste 28D is able to reach 28 m working height, while SWL is 300 kg and maximum outreach is 14 m. It also has electro-hydraulic controls.

The new Forste line is named after a childrens' charity, while the number indicates the working height and the letter stands for the type of boom, which in this case is 28 m double articulated.
