The T 900 HF has a working height of 90m and offers 42m of outreach. The performance is achieved with the manufacturer’s patented DRS-system (dynamic outreach system) and its ‘dual concept’ that increases the range of possible applications.

DI Horst Felbermayr, general manager of Felbermayr holding, “The lateral outreach of 42m, the dynamic outreach system as well as a weight less than 48 tonnes were essential decision criteria. This increases the flexibility whereby we expect a high rate of utilisation.”
