Tom Goyer, Vice President of RUTHMANN North America LP and Richard Carr Sales Manager, started a demo tour with the EAGLE T 108 A compliant truck mounted aerial in Los Angeles at the beginning of June with interested customers and successful discussions.
The tour continued via Pensecola, FL and Panama, FL to Miami. In the first week the weather didn't play along, but in the second week it became even more beautiful.
Ruthmann builds ANSI A92.2 compliant truck mounted aerials in working heights of 93’ (28.5m) to 295’ (90 m). This years tour will focus on our non-CDL products including our T108A, 108’ (33m) and Tu93A, 93’ (28.5m) aerials. According to Ruthmann’s Richard Carr, who will be conducting the tour, “The best way to understand the safety and efficiency benefits of Ruthmann truck mounted aerial work platforms is to operate the units.” The tour will include parking lot demos but also, in some cases, actual job site work. Ruthmann will allow selected customers to use the product on their job site for a day to experience the benefits of the Ruthmann aerials in real world work.
The T108A and the Tu93A both have gross vehicle weight ratings of less than 26,000 pounds so the driver is not required under US Federal law to possess a Commercial Driver’s license. Ruthmann has been able to achieve this low weight and still provide platform capacities of up to 700 pounds (300 kg) and outreach of up to 69’ (21 m) through the use of high strength to weight ratio steel and an innovative boom design.
The next demo tour is not long in coming, this week the two employees are visiting Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa in Florida.
