Truck Show Outtake: 2021 MAN TGS 35.470 With Ruthmann Steiger T 750 HF – High-Level Cherry Picking

MAN TGS 8x4 - Ruthmann Steiger - 1

Aiming for the high-hanging fruit? Then this fine piece of rental machinery is the perfect tool. Standing at some distance, I initially thought it was a truck-mounted telescopic boom crane. Yet on closer inspection, that’s clearly a work platform in the center.

The Ruthmann cherry picker (or more formally, an AWP – aerial work platform) teamed up with a MAN TGS 35.470 8×4 chassis-cab. The ensemble weighs an impressive 32,500 kg (71,650 lbs).

The number 750 in the AWP’s model designation refers to its maximum working height of 75 m (246 ft). That’s quite a stretch.

Now let’s see how this whole situation unfolds (suspense/dramatic music alert). Elevating!
