SOCAGE at GIS EXPO
7 October 2015
Unexpected success for the Italian company Socage at the GIS, The Italian Cranes & Access and Heavy Transport Show, held in Piacenza, from the 1st to the 3rd of October. With a higher number of attendees than previous editions, the exhibition proved to be very interesting and fruitful. Many visitors for the Socage stand, both customers as well as prospective clients, with a positive outcome. The company showed five types of platforms: the forSte 75TJJ, a telescopic platforms with double jib mounted on a free circulation truck, already sold to the rental company Viviani, based near Mantua; a forSte 54TJJ, belonging to Albatros s.r.l., another telescopic with double jib, already know both in the Italian and in the foreign market; three 3.5tons truck mounted platforms with the patented X chassis – the forSte DA420, double articulated reaching 20 meters of working height, of the new 4 series, the forSte 28D, another double articulated in a lighter version, and a forSte 21DJ, first double articulated with jib on a 3.5 ton truck designed by the company Socage. The said platforms boast of 300 kg load capacity in the basket and offer a minor weight as a whole, thanks to a lighter structure, but, nevertheless, better performances, thanks to the new chassis with longer beams. The last two in particular have reported considerable success, due to the ability of Socage to understand the needs of the international market and constantly develop new models to keep the pace.
