Ruthmann Steiger TBR260


The TBR 260 is a new generation of Steiger® access platforms featuring increased performance and maximised stability and versatility at the job site.  Manufactured to the high standards we expect from Ruthmann, the TBR 260 cherry picker is constructed from high-strength, fine grained steel for maximum stability.  The boom system has laser-welded seams to give more stability and precise movement.

Mounted on a compact 3.5 tonne truck this cherry picker is ideal for working at height when set up space is limited, for example when working at height in city centre locations.   Our customers will love the ease of use and flexibility of the TBR 260, which is available for hire with one of our trained MEWP Operators or for self-drive cherry picker hire across the UK.

The TBR 260 access platform has a maximum working height of 26 metres.  With up to 16.1 metres of outreach this cherry picker is useful when obstructions prevent you from setting up directly below your worksite.  It’s moveable Rüssel jib with a swivelling range of up to 180° give this cherry picker increased agility and manoeuvrability when working on and behind objects.

Perfect for self drive cherry picker hire

Our self-drive clients will love this cherry picker which is mounted on a 3.5-tonne truck.  Ruthmann have made improvements to the design of this range, giving increased work speed and easy handling. The TBR 260’s control system allows four simultaneous movements (lift, rotate, telescope, Rüssel up/ down) plus basket rotation.  Have a look at Ruthmann’s video below to see the TBR 260 in action.

Increased MEWP cage capacity

We specified an upgraded MEWP cage capacity to the standard TBR 260 model.  Our model has a MEWP cage capacity of 300kg, very handy for safely lifting people as well as the work equipment and materials needed to complete high-level tasks.


We have a great range of cherry pickers for hire in a range of sizes to suit any project.  Contact us today for more information or visit this page to see all cherry pickers available for hire.
