Austrian rental company Maltech Arbeitsbühnen has taken delivery of some of the first new GSR B-Model series of 3.5 tonne truck mounted lifts.
The new machines were sold and delivered by GSR’s distributor Rothlehner and include both GSR’s telescopic ‘T’ models and articulated ‘PX’ units, following an initial trial order of two 24 metre B240PX articulated models earlier this year. The trial order has been followed by the delivery of several 20 metre B200T4 telescopics - launched in August - with new four section booms, mounted on the new shorter Mercedes Sprinter 314 CDI chassis with a total overall length of seven metres. They offer a maximum outreach of 14 metres and a 250kg maximum platform capacity, available at a 9.5 metre outreach.
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions and risks, a personal handover of the latest B200T4 to be delivered was done digitally by the two joint owners and managing directors, Thomas Kumposcht.
Kumposcht and Gregor Klopf said: “We have a long term business relationship with the supplier Rothlehner. The Rothlehner team in Austria around their branch manager Bernhard Spörk enjoys our trust and the product features were just as decisive for the choice of GSR devices as the competent support and reliable service of the company.”
Manfred Rothlehner added: "The new machines are a significant into the premium class of machine for the Italian manufacturer from Rimini, its new generation of devices means a real alternative with a remarkable price/performance ratio for our customers. We are very happy about the package of orders from Maltech and thank them very much for their trust."
