Lift increase for Matbro TS range

UPDATES to Matbros TS280 model have resulted in an increased lift capacity from 2.8 to 3t and, as a result, the machine is rebadged TS290.

The standard 6.7m (22ft) boom is also complemented by 7.4m (24.3ft) and 9.0m (29.5ft) boom options, with stability afforded by a 7.1t unladen weight.

The TS290 now has high density polyethylene mudguards, a restyled engine cover and plastic moulded diesel tank, the latter designed to improve visibility between the offside wheels.

A restyled cab interior and Turner torque converter/powershuttle transmission complete the changes. £34,975 buys the standard 6.7m version. &#42

Matbros TS280 becomes the TS290 after a series of updates.
