Options for boom efficiency and safety
Haulotte is continuing to develop new accessories designed to enhance operators’ efficiency. In March, the group launched a variety of options designed to maximise productivity and safety while operating on Haulotte’s mobile elevating work platforms.
Dust, sand, salt fog, humidity or fine particles may cause irreparable damage to booms. Haulotte has introduced two hostile environment packages to protect key components such as control boxes or boom sections from debris and oxidation. These packages are already available on: HA26 RTJ O/RTJ PRO, HA32 RTJ PRO and HT28 RTJ O/RTJ PRO (HA80 RTJ O/RTJ PRO, HA100 RTJ PRO and HT85 RTJ O/RTJ PRO in North America). They will be deployed on the whole RTJ and LE range within the year.
On big booms, axle extension requires the use of outriggers. The newly launched outrigger pads distribute the weight of the boom on a larger surface, thus reducing significantly the ground pressure. Lightweight and water-repellent, they are made from high quality recycled plastic and offer a good protection against water, corrosion and slippage. Coming in a box, they measure 50 x 5 cm and can be stored in the chassis when not used. The outrigger pads are available on all big booms: HA32 RTJ PRO, HA41 RTJ PRO and HT43 RTJ PRO (HA100 RTJ PRO, HA130 RTJ PRO and HA132 RTJ PRO in North America).
On a jobsite, alarms coming from all types of machines cause a major source of noise. The Haulotte white noise alarm concentrates the sound in the danger zone. Because the alarm is only perceptible in a restricted working area, this new option enables operators to work in urban area without disturbing the people nearby. This new option is now available on HA20 LE/LE PRO, Optimum 8, Star 8, Star 10 and the whole Compact and RTJ range (HA61 LE/LE PRO, Optimum 1931 AC, Star 22J, Star 26J, Compact and RTJ range in North America).
