The first Ruthmann T 235 A for Canada

The first Ruthmann T 235 A for Canada

Up and Down Lifting Solutions in Ayr, Ontario, Canada, recently took delivery of its first Ruthmann T 235 A to expand their already sizeable fleet of truck mounted aerial work platforms.

Up and Down and its customers were so impressed by the unit that they quickly ordered a second.

The 235’-working-height truck-mounted aerial work platform has an outreach of up to 118’.

That working height and outreach make the Ruthmann T235A an excellent choice for multiple applications, including wind, communications towers, electrical transmission, building maintenance, and other access jobs that require height, extreme outreach, or multiple articulation points.

The three-section second boom, controllable third boom, and 180° articulation between both the first and second booms and the second and third booms add to the up and over flexibility and a total up-and-over height 66’.

Up and Down Lifting Solution’s customers have said they are impressed by the speed, stability, and smoothness of the Ruthmann product. They could tell by the boom shape that this was different from what they were used to using. The performance that impressed them comes from the innovative design and the materials. They include multi-beveled booms, high-strength fine-grained steel, and the control system.

The platform capacity of up to 1,323 lbs. enables the T 235 A to safely lift plenty of tools, materials, and people. The large platform which extends from 8’ to 12’wide offers enough space for Up and Down’s customers to complete work efficiently. The platform also supplies electric or air to power tools.

As with all Ruthmann products sold in North America, the T 235 A has a  third-party professional engineer’s written certification of compliance with the ANSI A92.2 U.S. safety standard and the CSA 225 Canadian safety standard. That gives the owners and users the peace of mind, comfort, and confidence of knowing the Ruthmann T235A meets the strict requirements of the U.S. and Canadian safety standards.
