Haulotte Introduces HT46 RTJ Telescopic Boom at ConExpo

HT46 RTJ

March 11, 2020 -  Haulotte used the occasion of the 2020 ConExpo show in Las Vegas to introduce the newest telescopic machine in their rough-terrain boom range, the HT46 RTJ.

The HT46 RTJ is a 46-ft. telescopic boom that is both designed and manufactured in Archbold, Ohio. It features an updated design utilizing mechanical axles, which allows for a smaller engine while still maintaining the rough-terrain performance of a larger engine.

For optimal safety, it is equipped with Haulotte’s latest innovations:

  • Haulotte Activ’Shield Bar prevents crushing risks
  • Haulotte Activ’Lighting System ensures safety during nighttime loading and unloading operations
  • Haulotte Stop Emission System limits pollution and noise
  • Haulotte Activ’Screen provides key information about the machine in real-time.

In addition to the product reveal, Carlos Hernandez, executive managing director, Americas, presented an update on the direction Haulotte is taking in the market: “We launched the Pulseo Generation in 2018, a new generation of all-electric off-road machines as part of our Blue Strategy. All our thermal energy machines will gradually integrate the technologies developed on Pulseo.”

Carlos continued, “In fact, the new HT46 telescopic boom that we are showing today will be the last internal combustion machine from Haulotte as we complete our telescopic range.”

Haulotte machines are mainly used in urban or peri-urban areas, but the company is seeing more and more “low emission zones” appear, with more than 200 major cities in the world prohibiting the use of polluting or noisy equipment.

Haulotte is also building a strategy of providing a full solution portfolio that includes machines, but focuses on the customer and the network of services around the machines that make the customer successful. Coming soon is the development of new service offerings using fleet management solutions that will take center stage in the coming years.
