Haulotte on display
By Chris Sleight13 January 2011
Haulotte's stand will feature products from across its range, many of which are being shown in India for the first time. The newest machine on display will be the Compact 14 electric scissor lift.
The Compact 14 offers a 14 m working height and is designed for indoor use in warehouses and for building maintenance in the construction industry. Haulotte says it is the first major player in the powered access industry to manufacture this size of compact electric scissor - most manufacturers' ranges top-out at 12 m.
Other machines on display will include the H43TPX telescopic boom, which offers a 43 m working height and 20 m of outreach. The maximum capacity is 450 kg, and features include fast boom telescoping as well as proportional and simultaneous controls for quick, accurate movements.
The company's articulating boom range will be represented by the 32 m working height HA32 PX. With simultaneous 4-wheel drive and steering and a 370 mm ground clearance, the machine is a genuine rough terrain platform. Extended, oscillating axles and a hydraulic differential lock system allow it to climb 45% slopes.
The H18SX from Haulotte's rough terrain scissor lift range is designed for a variety of exterior building tasks, including repairs, roof work, cladding installation and other jobs where a large area platform is required.
At the other end of the scale is the Optimum 8 electric scissor lift which, despite its 8 m working height, is just 0.76 m wide and has a stowed height of just 1.91 m, allowing it to pass through internal doorways. The Star 10 electric vertical mast is a similarly small machine, with its 1.99 m stowed height and 0.99 m width. The machine also features 360° rotation and a fly jib to help get to hear-to-reach places.
