Ruthmann Steiger TU 285 Facts

The Ruthmann TU285 MEWP is extremely compact and perfect for use for high level work in cramped city centre locations.  It has a working height of up to 28.5 meters and a lateral outreach of up to 20.5 meters, very handy when you can’t position the truck directly below your work site.

With a 320 kg cage load capacity allows you to safely lift both you and your work equipment to your high level working position.  Mounted on a 7.49 tonne vehicle this truck mounted MEWP is available for self drive hire, or for hire with one of our trained operators.

The upper boom has been designed to be exceptionally long allowing it to be manoeuvred over objects to access hard to reach places.  The tower section of the boom is located at the rear of the truck giving the operator unprecedented sensitivity and precision of positioning.
