Ruthmann T720 Truck Mounted Access Platforms with 72m working height

Things have been very busy here at Elev8 HQ and we haven’t had time to tell you about the two brand new Ruthmann T720’s access platforms which arrived this summer.


We love the reliability and intuitive control of Ruthmann MEWPs and these latest additions to our fleet are everything you would expect from this high quality access platform manufacturer.  With 72 meters of working height and up to 38 meters of lateral outreach these powered access platforms are perfect for use on many applications including wind farm maintenance, dock and shipping inspections, roof works and high level telecoms.


This access platform can be supplied with a camera cage for film and TV work such as live coverage of sporting events.


T720 access platform features

It has a movable jib which gives the operator flexibility when positioning the basket allowing it to be positioned so you can work behind objects.  This is useful for structural inspections, and because the basket can positioned up to 12 metres below the truck it is particularly useful for under / side  bridge inspection work where the only safe access is from on top of the bridge.


This machine has a class leading 20m fly boom in the 70 metre category allow great up and over capabilities.  Customers will be delighted at the very smooth and solid ride this machine gives, giving you a real sense of security and safety.


The MAN chassis on these two  truck mounted MEWPs are 8 axel with twin front and rear steer which make them very nimble and maneuverable.  A great feature is the 6+8 wheel drive feature allowing good off road ability too.


The Ruthmann T720 has a generous 600 KG working basket load capacity, making it perfect for jobs where you need to carry equipment such as glass or signage for high level installations.  This access platform also has lifting frames and a winch system making it one of the most complete access platforms in the UK today.
