Haulotte Introduces First Boom Lifts in Electric-Powered Shift of Machines


Haulotte announced at Intermat that the company will be changing its focus to developing primarily electric-powered lifting and material handling equipment, introducing its first battery-operated articulating boom lifts as part of its “Pulseo” generation of machines.

With the motto of “Let’s Dare Together,” the OEM said it will keep only a portion of its machines diesel-powered in the future, in what the company said is an effort to respond to the demands of their customers. Haulotte said the new rough-terrain HA20 LE and HA20 LE PRO, unveiled at the Paris show, are designed to work a full eight-hour shift on a single charge of their high-capacity lead acid batteries, and they also include a built-in multi-voltage charger and range-extending diesel engine.

The new zero-emission articulating boom models feature four-wheel drive for outdoor applications, but they can also operate indoors as well, with optional nonmarking tires. The models have a 61-ft. platform height and offer up to 550 lbs. of platform load capacity, with an optional dual-load capacity of up to 770 lbs. in the basket.

The PRO model features a 360° continuous-rotation turret, and both models come standard with Haulotte’s existing safety features on its RTJ line, including its Activ’ Lighting System. The Activ’ Screen functions are now available on mobile devices with the free Haulotte Diag app, which gives maintenance technicians wireless access to the machines.

Haulotte is offering a full five-year warranty on the HA20 LE and HA20 LE PRO, along with other models in the Pulseo line it will be introducing.
