The MTW 100.216 for Rhomberg Fahrleitungsbau GmbH based in Wiener Neudorf (Austria) will mainly be used for installation works on new lines but also for the renewal and upgrade of existing lines.
The three-part column lifting platform in the machine centre provides great flexibility. The large platform can be lifted to up to 4.5 metres. The two smaller baskets can be extended independently - laterally by 3 metres and vertically by 2.8 metres. This allows reaching a maximum working height of 9 metres above top of rail. When combined and locked, the three elements provide a large working area for overhead line installation.
This machine is the second MTW 100 for Rhomberg Fahrleitungsbau. It was ordered in November 2017, around one and a half years after the handover of the first heavy-duty motor tower car.
