ART17TH MEWP with pantograph in action

Rail Products is delighted to announce that it will be exhibiting at the forthcoming AusRail show in Brisbane, (Nov 21st – Nov 23rd ) stand no 502 where our new ART 17 TH MultiGauge MEWP which has been developed with the full support of Manitou’s head office in France, will be on display.

Already acknowledged as one of the most innovative and technically advanced MEWPS available today - the ART17TH, is the only Manitou MEWP available in the market place today that has a total 360 degrees radius, unlike competitive machines which can only rotate to a maximum of 270 degrees.

Working from zero cant to 180mm cant in work mode and 200mm in travel mode, the ART17TH can also travel over the side at 90 degrees at a 120 cant, working at all times with a full load of 400kg. It also has a maximum lateral outreach of 8.94m with the telescopic arm fully extended, a continuous turret rotation and 180 degrees basket rotation capability, giving total versatility at both ends of the machine.

The ART17TH now also has the option of adding an in-built adjustable track gauge (1000mm to 1600mm) which will enable it to work across virtually any major rail network in the world.

Furthermore the machine can be fitted with a ‘Pantograph’, which enables the machine — for the first time ever — to ‘pan’ on the move. The self-propelled machine provides height and stagger measurements as it moves. Rail Products’ new Mark II Pantograph will now not only monitor height and stagger measurements, it will also record them — another first for the company. Plus further technical development of the ‘Pantograph’ has meant a new Mark III version is about to be launched which will also offer GPS data control as well as video feedback.
