“And you’re sure it is there? OK, I am on my way! “ Those were John Fennel’s words from City Wide Building Services, when Pamela Nielsen  from Ruthmann ReachMaster called to confirm that the container with the company’s new Bluelift B85 Combo unit had just arrived at the Ruthmann Reachmaster Porter facility in suburban Houston.

The Bluelift B85 Combo is the latest addition to the Dallas-based company’s fleet of compact lifts from Ruthmann Reachmaster. It will serve as an important tool for the company who specializes in access- and reach challenging building services and maintenance tasks throughout central Texas. “The B85 Combo is an excellent choice as it offers both the lithium battery power for indoor use combined with the reliable Honda engine for outdoor use” explains Ebbe Christensen, President of Ruthmann ReachMaster. He continues “Equivalently important is the ultra-compact dimensions of the unit, which is about 4 feet shorter than any comparative unit, only 38 inches wide and 6 ft 6 inches tall, making it possible to get the unit into spaces virtually no other lift with 85 ft. work height can match. They also added an additional single man basket to the lift which will allow them to get into very tight spaces”.

John Fennel from City Wide Building Services confirms that the company already has jobs lined up for the new machine “So, when we had confirmation the unit was in this morning, we went on the road for the 4 hour drive while the Ruthmann Reachmaster guys performed their tests and PDI of the unit. That way we will have it out on its first job on Monday! ” says John Fennel.

Robert Parkerson, Service Manager at Ruthmann Reachmaster confirms that at particular this time of the year, there is a rush to get equipment out. “We actually had two containers arrive with lifts today from Italy this morning, and two units are already out the door here at the end of the day” which he admits is a little unusual. “Yes, normally we have at least a few days to test and PDI units, but because of the high demand, we are trying to turn the units around as quickly as we can”.
