Haulotte introduces Star 6 Crawler
Haulotte’s new Star 6 Crawler has been designed to give the operator easy access to all jobsites as it can be used on a range of terrains. The crawling system not only enables the mast to go over the roughest terrains, but also significantly reduces the ground pressure, which is essential for driving on sensitive floors. It operates both indoor and outdoor, up to 6 m working height. It is thus suitable for various applications: maintenance, finishing, landscaping, sporting and other events
Haulotte’s new electric rough-terrain vertical mast Star 6 Crawler can get over unstable, wet or uneven grounds and cross slopes up to 25%. A mobile axis on the intermediate oscillating rollers provides an optimal ground adherence. The machine can elevate inside and outside on any kind of flat surface: it is particularly suited for working on fragile floors thanks to its low ground pressure. The mast architecture also ensures optimal stability: the 200kg load capacity enables two operators to work indoors with confidence. For a more comfort and efficiency a 40cm basket extension offers an extra outreach.
Star 6 Crawler’s AC motors provide high torque and high levels of manoeuvrability. The new vertical mast offers smooth and proportional movements for an unmatched precision and safety. With its narrow turning radius, operators can manoeuvre in the most confined spaces.
Haulotte has added a number of practical details to its new Star mast to make life easier on a jobsite. Looking at the platform, a non-skid step integrated into the machine’s design and a swing door entry gate allow a safe entry. The vibration-proof rubber buffers under the platform ensure a smooth lowering. The ergonomic control box gathers all commands together so that they are all accessible with one hand. For maximum flexibility, the Star 6 Crawler can be lifted lengthwise during transport phases thanks to dedicated forklift pockets.
All components are protected against water projections and are easily accessible in order to facilitate the maintenance. The Star 6 Crawler is equipped with AGM batteries and asynchronous motors which require no regular maintenance. The mast’s simple architecture with no chain and no cable minimizes risks of breakage. The tracks and charger plug are also protected from shocks as they are located inside the chassis frame. In order to save time in troubleshooting, operators can access to the Activ’Screen display and functions through the Haulotte Diag app.
The Star 6 Crawler is available for pre-order now, and will be available for sale in the second half of 2020 in Europe (except Russia) and Asia Pacific countries.
