Our HEIGHT performance highflex STEIGER® models are also ideal for assignments under bridges, as these photos taken by the Spanish equipment rental company – Alberto Piñeiro Lift* – illustrate.
One of their customers recently rented the STEIGER® T 570 HF for maintenance work at a water reservoir in Galicia, Spain.
In order to inspect/repair the water barrier, intake, and trash racks from inside the work basket, the T 570 HF was positioned and stabilized on the „bridge” above the dam. Without constantly having to reposition the work platform, the assignment was carried out smoothly and efficiently.
With its special technical features, our T 570 HF maximizes agility at the job site.
This innovative model features a “working depth” of up to 12 m. Thanks to its highflex technology, the work basket can be rotated by 440 degrees. With the jib (RÜSSEL®) in lowered position, assignments can easily be carried out behind obstacles and below ground (as seen here on the left).
Happy about the successful deployment of his T 570 HF, A. Piñeiro (General Manager and owner of Alberto Piñeiro Lift), made the following comment: “The T 570 HF performed brilliantly, and safety was never compromised. Our customers are impressed with the versatility and performance capabilities of RUTHMANN STEIGER® models. The selection of STEIGER® aerial work platforms in my rental fleet has increased steadily over the past several years.
In addition to the T 570 HF, our rental customers also have access to an amazing T 630. I have also ordered two additional STEIGER® models. A T 750 HF – the flagship of the highflex series – and T 510 HF, with its world class performance capabilities (51 m working height on a 2-axle chassis), will be arriving soon.
Our company is well-known all across Spain. We are proud to be one of the pioneers in the large-scale equipment category. Our success depends on reliable business partners such as RUTHMANN that provide us with innovative and high-performance machinery. The success we enjoy can also be attributed to RUTHMANN’s extremely engaged and successful sales and service partner in Spain – AMCO Machinery & Consulting (run by Bert Wiegel and his dedicated team of professionals).”
Our long-time customer – equipment rental specialist, – is headquartered in Pontevedra (Galicia) on the Atlantic coast. Piñeiro has over 20 employees and is also an IPAF partner. To learn more, visit www.aplift.com
Excellent “working depth”: The work basket on the T 570 HF can be rotated by 440 degrees. With the jib (RÜSSEL) in lowered position, under-bridge assignments can safely be carried out with utmost efficiency.
The T 570 HF features fully-variable outriggers for flexible stabilizing width and a 2-degree permissible set-up inclination. This maximize safety when working in cramped and confined conditions.
Mounted on a 3-axle chassis, the T 570 HF has an impressive 57-m working height and 41-m lateral outreach.
