Published: May 5th, 2015
Calder Stewart and Grayson Engineering have recently taken deliveries of their new Manitou 280 TJ Access Platforms to assist in the Christchurch rebuild. Both owner operators are impressed with the machines’ manoeuvrability, stability and accessibility and will certainly put these machines to test during the rebuild process.
Manitou 280 TJ has a working height of 28m and a maximum outreach of 21.45m and can hold 2-3 persons in a large basket measuring 2.30m x 0.90m. These machines are very user-friendly with smooth hydraulic functions and offer some unique features over their competitors to reduce work cycle times. These machines are suitable on construction sites as well as a variety of industrial applications where access is a requirement.
