Time brands make multiple equipment launches at APEX
By Leila Steed07 June 2023
Time Manufacturing Company has launched a range of products at APEX, taking place in Maastricht this week.
Among the new announcements were models from Time’s Versalift, France Elévateur, Movex and Ruthmann brands.
The UPTO 15 van mount from France Elévateur, first launched at Bauma last year, has now been joined by the 13m working height UPTO 13, which has a shorter principle boom and shortened chassis. It will be followed by the UPTO 18 on a 3.5 tonne chassis.
In addition the UPTO 15 is now available as a full electric version, alongside its sibling van mount, the e-Topy 11, now mounted on a Ford E Transit.
Joining the low emission product line is the TLRH hybrid series from Spain-based Movex with its 16, 18 and 20m working height models.
New from Versalift is the VDTE with a new light construction allowing it to be mounted on a heavy electrical vehicle, while still offering good payload. The same boom can also be mounted on a conventional van mount to offer even more payload.
Moving up the size scale is the new Versalift V-200 with 14m outreach across the full 360 degree diagram. It is mounted on a 3.5 tonne Iveco, that is compact bought to offer a 3,750mm turning radius.
In addition, there is another new V series product, the V-170; a smaller model designed with France Elevatuer.
This will be followed in 2024 by the V-225, meaning the Time group in Europe will have a complete product line.
Lastly, the company announced that Ruthmann will re-enter the 100m working height truck mount category with the new T1000 to be launched in 2024.
Preliminary specifications include a 600kg capacity in the basket.
It will be mounted on a five axle truck with a total weight that is designed to be 10 tonnes lighter than previously at 53 tonnes. A unit had already been ordered by France-based Joly Location.
