No job is out of reach with the RUTHMANN Bluelift SA18HB tracked spider lift – designed for close proximity and rough terrain.

Popular among arborists in Australia, the RUTHMANN Bluelift SA18HB tracked spider lift is ideal for many maintenance tasks thanks to its narrow width and lightweight design. With a maximum working height of 17.8m and maximum horizontal outreach up to 9.3m, this model can easily reach high elevations.

As a Bluelift Hybrid model, the SA18HB is a full hybrid solution that can switch from battery power to combustion engine. This industry-leading design delivers versatility as it reduces emissions in three energy-efficient operating modes.

All Electric mode allows the machine to be solely powered from a 90 amp/hr lithium cell battery whilst operating in a fixed position. Rapid recharging can be completed in approximately two hours with an on-board charger.

All Engine mode is operated from the combustion engine for full power and full speed. This is ideal for outdoor usage with the ability to travel long distances.

In the Auto mode, the spider lift can switch between battery power and diesel engine to offer the most efficient fuel saving mode. The SA18HB can work for four to five hours of continuous use. Auto mode also delivers low emissions and reduced noise for environmentally friendly operation.

A radio control with multilingual display makes this machine a global product with the ability to be driven safely through tight areas and uneven terrain. The SA18HB is capable of climbing stairs for a wider range of indoor and outdoor applications. And with a gradeability up to 28 per cent, the self-stabilising system locks the spider lift into place for safe work at height.

The SA18HB has a tight turning radius for navigating narrow landscapes and other areas. Its adjustable hydraulic chassis allows for precise positioning in any situation.
