CARGOLOADER ®-Innovation. Easy loading and unloading now possible with Class B driver’s licence.

(PresseBox) (Gescher-Hochmoor, ) For the past sixty years, RUTHMANN has not only been the leading manufacturer of aerial platforms under the brand name of STEIGER ®, but the German manufacturer has also been the leading supplier of special-transport vehicles.

With its CARGOLOADER ® and FLEXILOADER ®, RUTHMANN provides transport vehicles for a great variety of applications. On short to medium routes with frequent loading/unloading, it is extremely important that goods are handled in a safe, ergonomic and efficient manner. An independent study conducted by the University of Muenster, verifies the outstanding effectiveness of RUTHMANN´s special transport vehicles. The CARGOLOADER®, for example, can cut costs by up to 40%.

On the CARGOLOADER®, the entire loading area can be either be lowered to ground level or raised to 1.6 metres. Until now, this innovative and cost-effective function was only available on vehicles in the 5-ton (GVW) category. Only holders of C1 truck driver’s licences were allowed to operate vehicles in this category. With the new RCP 35, RUTHMANN has introduced a CARGOLOADER® that can be operated by drivers with the new Class B driver’s licence. This is a great benefit to many existing and potential customers, especially when it comes to food transport at hospitals or industrial intra-company transportation services. Here dispatchers or fleet managers often rely on trainees who can only operate vehicles that do not exceed the 3.5 ton (GVW) limit.

The maximum load capacity of a transport vehicle is also very important, for obvious reasons. The new RCP 35 offers an impressive 1,000kg load capacity even on the relatively heavy closed-container variety. The standard cargo area of the new RCP 35 is 3.9 metres long and 1.6 metres (maximum) wide. However, because of the many diverse customer needs for vehicles in this category, RUTHMANN is very flexible when it comes to equipment, accessories and design. Customers have a wide range of options to choose from, including refrigerated containers, loading areas with canvass covers and tarp hoops, food-transport containers, patient-transport containers, etc.

In addition to the amazing lifting and lowering capabilities, cargo areas and
containers are completely interchangeable on the CARGOLOADER ®. It is therefore entirely possible to, for example, transport food in the morning and deliver other types of goods in the afternoon, using only one CARGOLOADER ®.

RUTHMANN currently offers the CARGOLOADER ® RCP 35 using a Ford Transit truck as the base vehicle. The distinctive feature of this combination is that the overall height of the vehicle does not exceed 2 metres while its standard width does not exceed 2.3 metres. One of the adavantages: operators can use all RCP 35 functions even in underground garages/ parking lots.
