RUTHMANN assumes the sales and service of all products of the Italian subsidiary in Germany and Austria with immediate effect – to the known top quality standard. RUTHMANN SERVICE offers a top after-sales service to all international customers with the launch of the new Italian company.

One of the most successful models of Bluelift is the SA 22; 22 m working height, 250 kg basket load.
RUTHMANN ECOLINE truck mounted platforms are available on 3.5 t chassis as telescopic boom up to 18 m and articualting platforms (see picture) of 20 m.

RUTHMANN´s portfolio of truck mounted platforms will be complimented in future by products of the brand ‘Ecoline’. International markets may expect solid and powerful products on a competitive price basis. All models are designed for the 3.5 t chassis.

The range of RUTHMANN Ecoline truck mounted aerial platforms offers telescopic boom models up to 18 m and articulating boom models up to 20 m working height, with different features.

In the future, the RUTHMANN Italia brand family thus composes of the brand ‘Bluelift’ – as brand for spider platforms - and ‘Ecoline’ – as brand for truck mounted aerial platforms in the ‘low budget’ sector.
