Ranger adds Teupen's new Leo 15GT Plus spider lift to its portfolio
Chesterfield-based Ranger Equipment has added Teupen's latest launch, the all-new 15.5m working height Leo 15GT Plus spider lift, to its portfolio.
This new feature-packed lift introduces a premium specification 15m model to sit above the standard Leo 15GT which will be revamped and relaunched in the future.
The Leo 15GT Plus boasts advances not available on the standard machine as well as enhancements being made across the Teupen range under its 'facelift' programme. The 'facelift' improvements aim to maintain the Leos' lead in versatility, user-friendliness and productivity, giving hire companies greater scope to solve difficult jobs for customers and command higher rentals.
A 7.9m maximum working outreach improves on the old model by 1.5m, and can be used at full 200kg platform capacity. This outreach and capacity, in combination with the very compact 3m stabiliser base, retained from the standard machine, sets a new lead for 15m spiders. The Leo 15GT Plus also gains an extra 0.6m of working height over its predecessor, and a fully independent 90 degree fly jib.
In common with other 'facelift' machines, the new model has a larger Z602 KUBOTA diesel power engine, with the latest fuel-efficient power management system for faster drive and boom speed. The platform control unit can be detached for remote operation of the platform via a wander-lead.
Ranger tells us that Teupen's smallest machine, the Leo13GT with 12.8m w/h, maximum 6.10m lateral outreach and 200kg capacity, is proving popular. Ranger is planning to unveil a new power option for this machine early next year.
When it was launched two years ago, the Leo 13GT introduced a number of innovative features being rolled out in Teupen's current 'facelift' programme, including a low-maintenance finish and automatic self-levelling outriggers.
