GSR pair head for harsh conditions
By Euan Youdale04 June 2015
GSR has supplied its first two models in the Russian market for the maintenance of electric and telephone lines.
The of 17 and 29 m working height E179T and E290PX have been tested throughout the winter as they must meet harsh weather conditions.
The E179T telescopic boom is mounted on a 4X4 Gaz Sadko, considered the most suited light vehicle for the job. The boom carries up to 250 kg maximum load in the basket and provides a maximum horizontal outreach of more than 12 m.
The double articulated E290PX is mounted on a Kamaz 4308 two-axle 4x4 military vehicle. The E290PX works at full outreach unrestricted with 250 kg in the basket, giving an outreach of over 15.5 m with full capacity.
Both models use fully hydraulic controls and were conceived as heavy-duty machines, very different from the light-duty type typical in Western Europe.
