    The new CITY-STEIGER ® TU 285 – mounted on a 7.49 t chassis – is the perfect work platform for cramped, inner city conditions. Assignments include: façade maintenance, industrial cleaning, roof repair, and paint jobs.

    The extremely compact TU 285 features a 28.50 m working height and 20.50 m lateral reach. This exciting new model has an overall length of just 6.96 m, a short 3.60 m wheelbase, and is only 3.69 m high.

    The CITY-STEIGER ® TU 285 has many special technical features. The popular and time-tested multi-bevelled tower and boom system have also been adopted on this model. What’s new? The tower section is now located at the rear and the upper boom has been newly designed. The operator is able to approach objects with unprecedented sensitivity and precision.

    The newly designed upper boom is exceptionally long. The extended upper boom can easily be manoeuvred over objects so that work can be carried out behind hard-to-reach objects. The truck itself can also be positioned extremely close to the desired object.

    Our TU 285 comes equipped with many exciting standard features. This includes the popular horizontal/vertical support system and a variety of features found in/on the work cage. The start-stop mechanism, cage rotation device, memory function, etc. are all standard features. The TU 285 can be controlled from the control panel in the work cage or the alternate control on the passenger side. This innovative new STEIGER ® model can carry out assignments on sloped surfaces of up to 5°.

    Optionally available: outrigger controls located at the rear on both sides of the vehicle and the fully-variable support mechanism. Depending on the position of the individual outrigger, the state-of-the-art electronic control system enables dynamic range adaption for maximum operational safety and efficiency.
    The work cage – 1.70 m x 0.86 m in size – is also standard equipment on the TU 285. It has an impressive 320 kg carrying capacity. The interchangeable work cage system and/or larger work cage (2.10 m x 0.86 m) are available upon request. The new work cage is 1.80 sq. metres bigger than the standard cage. Last but not least, the CITY-STEIGER ® TU 285 can be mounted onto a great variety of truck makes and models.

    The CITY-STEIGER ® TU 285 leaves nothing to be desired!
