The Igo T 85 was launched in 2008 and immediately rose in popularity across Europe, particularly in Germany and France. Since then, it has become well known in Asia and the United States. In 2011, an upgraded model — the Igo T 85 A — was developed to include a third additional mast section and new slewing system, reaching 124.6 ft. (38 m) height under hook.
