Ruthmann North America Announces 2019 Truck Mounted Aerial Drive and Fly Demo Tour

Ruthmann North America is excited to announce our 2019 Ruthmann North American Drive and Fly Truck Mounted Aerial Demo Tour.

Ruthmann builds ANSI A92.2 compliant truck mounted aerials in working heights of 93’ (28.5m) to 295’ (90 m). This year’s tour will focus on our non-CDL products including our T108A, 108’ (33m) and Tu93A, 93’ (28.5m) aerials.

The T108A and the Tu93A both have gross vehicle weight ratings of less than 26,000 pounds so the driver is not required under US Federal law to possess a Commercial Driver’s license.

Contact Richard Carr, richard.carr@ruthmann.us (813) 580-1959 for information or to set up a demo at your location.

Richard Carr Joins Ruthmann North America

Ruthmann North America LP is excited to announce the addition of Richard Carr to our North American sales team. Richard will use his sales background to sell all heights, up to 295’ (90 m), of Ruthmann’s truck mounted aerial platforms in the US, Canada, and Mexico. 

Richard will initially focus on expanding the market share of Ruthmann’s 93’ (28.5 m) and 108’ (33m) units.  The TU93 and T108A have GVW ratings of less than 26,000 pounds so they provide a non-CDL option for customers who need the speed and flexibility of a truck mounted lift but don’t want to have the administrative burden of commercial driver’s license compliance.

Tom Goyer, Vice President of Ruthmann North America LP, said about Richard and his new role, “We are excited to expand our North American sales team with Richard's passion and energy. His consultative sales approach will work well in the market and will help the customers purchase the most appropriate Ruthmann aerial.”
