Socage to show the Raptor at ConExpo
By Euan Youdale09 February 2023
Italian truck mount specialist Socage is appearing at ConExpo with its new company that focuses on spider lifts, Socage Raptor.
The new company was launched last year to concentrate on the tracked platform market and so far provides models from 15m to more than 20m working height. The brainchild of Socage owner Fiorenzo Flisi, alongside tracked platform expert Fiorenzo Lodi Rizzini, the new entity is set to revolutionise the world of double pantograph and telescopic boom tracked aerial lifts, said Socage. The new range includes three products so far; the 15S, 18S and 21S.
Socage Raptor will export its products to more than 50 countries around the world, including the US, where it will present the new 15S and the 21S at ConExpo. The 15S offers 15m maximum working height and 7m of outreach, with a basket payload of 225kg - for two operators and materials, without limitations throughout the working area. It includes a double articulated aerial boom with hydraulic jib for greater versatility.
As standard, the platform is equipped with hydraulic controls for the movements of the aerial part and with a radio remote control as an option, for greater comfort and operator safety.
The 21S lift has a maximum working height of 20.8m and a maximum lateral outreach of 10.3m. Its basket payload is 230kg, for two operators and materials, again throughout the working envelope, with no limitation. It is fitted with automatic stabilisation and closing, for easy and safe use.
