INNOTRANS is on the way


From September 20th to 23rd we will be attending the InnoTrans expo 2016 in Berlin, come and see our latest improvement for the railway industry at the booth : Outdoor area /430 – or inside T2/45

Product focus: 202TBI


The famous 172TBI gets a little sister, but bigger. Bespoke design for a Portuguese client, we boosted the performances from 17m to 20m in order to fit perfectly their needs. Mounted on a 4X4 heavy duty truck, it will get the job done anywhere no matter the terrain. Also fitted with a custom workshop to store tools and repair work. The insulated boom remains the same using fiber glass and silicone.

Product focus: 354 TBE


Last year we launched our 284TBE (28 meters working height) during INTERMAT in Paris, this year we go big with the 354TBE displayed for the first time during BAUMA in Munich. The unit is allowing better performance without compromising the compactness of the vehicle thanks to the sliding system of the boom which saves 1.5m off the overall length of the vehicle by storing it on the top of the vehicle’s cabin. With a telescopic JIB from 2.2m expandable to 4.7m it allows better overhang with 4 people in the basket. Mounted on a 18T GVW Scania P410 the 354TBE is the right tool if you need high performance while working in the city.

BAUMA round up


This year we announced 3 new products on our booth, the 354TBE an incredible 35 meters mounted on a 18T GVW Scania Truck keeping the same length as our 28 meters thanks to our revolutionary boom sliding system. We also showcased our most recent innovation, the fully electric ultra-compact van mount, the 091Fe (alongside the 091F in thermic version) design for inner-city work. The platform offers a 9m working height and 4.6m outreach.

How we see hybrid technology


We have been making machines with battery packs for more than 20 years for the national French electricity company ERDF, and have been following the evolution of this technology. All our range can be fitted with hybrid technology. It also fits electric-powered platforms on standard vans and trucks and offers a 100% electric platform and carrier.

For example, the 11 m Topy 11 to the 28 m 248 TBE has a hydraulic system with batteries which can supply enough power to work for 15 full cycles, and can be fitted with solar panels to help charge the batteries faster.


We land in Egypt


This summer the Alexandria Passengers Transport Authority took delivery of their tramway maintenance truck from France Elevateur. It is a one out of 2 tailor made machines, mounted on 18.000 KG GVW MAN truck. It features a 3500V insulated platform of 3000mm length and 2200mm width, 500Kg working load and a working height of 8m. On client’s request we also fitted a Fassi F95A crane with a 4 person’s fiberglass work cage so the client can use it as a crane but also to lift the basket.

The second machine will be out of our factory very soon and the client will be able to enjoy it before the end of 2015. It is an immense pleasure to supply APTA and we look forward to a long collaboration.
