16,6 m of working height, 11,3 m of outreach, 250 kg of max capacity. CTE B-Lift 17 is born and it’s the first model of a new telescopic truck-mounted aerial platforms range for light duty chassis up to 27 m of working height.
The name of the range shows now a variation of the model designation (not hundreds but dozens) to mark the changes made to the entire range, and to unify the naming with CTE ZED family, always characterized by models with dozens.
Starting from the winning features of B-LIFT 162, this new product is an evolution-revolution for the CTE telescopic range.
Evolution for the transition from 3mm steel Domex to 2 mm steel Strenx, continuing the fruitful collaboration with the Swedish steel producer SSAB (recently CTE has received “My inner Strenx” certification, for more info:
Furthermore there is the revolution applied to the electrical and hydraulic systems with the introduction of a CAN BUS management system and a new hydraulic management system. The easy user interfaces of this platform are the same of the truck-mounted articulated range CTE ZED, with fully proportional electro-hydraulic controls, engine speed variable depending on the used maneuvers, smooth maneuvers with acceleration and deceleration ramp, electric PTO. An innovative remote console is housed in a specific compartment on the platform. To simplify the management of the service, it has been studied a diagnostic common to other CTE platforms (ZED, TRACCESS, B-LIFT).
The chassis has been completely redesigned and presents a new IOTS system (integrated oil tank system) which provides housing oil tank in the rear beam.
The total weight of the platform is less than 3200 kg. Mounted on Nissan Cabstar NT 400, the platform’s height is less than 3000 mm. Stabilization is HS+HS, also in shape.
To facilitate the operators’ movements, basket access has been lowered 120 mm compared to the previous B-Lift versions.
The basket is available in Alu or fiberglass basket, the rotation is equal to 65°+65°. Turret rotation ± 200°.
