The Dijon based Joly location has received the first Ruthmann T720 truck in France. This would be the first Ruthmann truck to be delivered in the country. The latest machine was taken for job in the Dijon’s historical central district where it was set to work on a 5 star hotel situated next to the Grand hotel de la Cloche in the city center. The building was established between year 1881 and 1884 and was protected from demolition in the 1970s when an order for preservation was placed on the walls and façade.
The new lift was simple and easy to work on the whole of the façade and the roof from one single position. The lift’s long telescopic job let to reach to the hotel at the back of the building where it performed repair and maintenance over the roof slates and gutters. The lift had the ability to work on the front and back of the hotel. After the work was done, the lift was moved towards Paris and was set to work on Brest.
This amazing machine has been mounted on an 8 into 4 by 4, has one axle on the front and 3 axles at the rear. Axle one and axle 3 are the steering axles and axle 2 and axle 3 are the driving axles. The wheelbase is a bit short that 4.5 meter instead of 5.1 meter. Because of such measurements, the turning radius is way better as compared to any similar combination. Moreover, in rough terrain, the driving axles provide the driving power right at the point where the load is for exceptional traction. The front over hang is less than two meters.
The T720 is the latest addition to Ruthmann’s height series offering flexible access in odd situation. All credit goes to its extended telescoping with moveable jib. The model has a working height of seventy two meters and has a maximum lateral reach of thirty eight meters. The design shows that the operator would have 21.4 meter reach at a working height of sixty eight meters along with a hundred kilogram cage load. The Ruthmann T720’s flexibility lets the work to be done behind awkward obstructions including pipes, building fronts, and wires and cables. With the help of this model work can also be done at depths measuring up to twenty meters below the surface. All thanks goes to the jib system and the telescoping and rotating of the cage.
The T720 is designed to offer customers the advantages of extended length. The operators now get additional 5.5 meter of upper boom length as compared to other models in the series. A new feature incorporated in the model is that 4 outriggers can be manipulated individually from the back on both sides of the vehicles. This feature is added for providing better decision making while jacking and increasing safety on the site. The simple and easy positioning of the outrigger pads also results in decreased set-up time. The Ruthmann T720 has compact and precise dimensions with a total length of only 13.7 meters.
