L'Horme, France-based Haulotte Group has diversified its range of products with the launch of its Haulotte Top Lift (HTL) telescopic handlers this week at ConExpo. The HTL 90-45 and HTL 90-55 were designed in house by the company in order to meet the needs of customers, the company said. The new HTL telescopic handlers integrate technological innovations developed in the field of aerial work platforms. This optimal transfer of technology ensures user comfort and a high level of safety for operators.
The Haulotte Group has designed machines that meet the needs of the rental market, focusing on reliability and safety. The telehandlers bring a wide range of innovations to the market, in terms of compactness, pollution levels (with a significant reduction in noise and CO2 emissions levels), user safety, reliability, comfort, ease of use and transportation.
With lifting capacities of up to 9,000 pounds and lifting heights up to 54 feet, 10 inches, HTL telehandlers can be fitted with multiple accessories: forks, buckets, work tools, hooked brackets, metal windscreen protectors and side-mounted work tool containers. HTL handlers offer stability regardless of the terrain surface. This lateral stability is the combined result of the automatic locking of the rear deck rotation, the progressive movement deceleration system for limiting rearward travel, and the lateral tilt corrector, according to the company.
The two forward stabilizers reinforce this stability in all working configurations. Their independent operation allows them to rapidly adapt to all types of ground at any time. Blocking is possible up to a mast angle of 20. A rear deck locking system reinforces stability.
HTL telescopic handlers assist the operator in all operating positions with numerous visual and audible indicators.
The “travel” and “worksite” modes, clearly identified, make maneuvering safer by avoiding any possible confusion. In this way, the “travel” mode prevents any unforeseen lowering of the stabilizers.
ROPS and FOPS fitted, the cabs are sound-proofed and fitted with ventilation, air conditioning (optional), adjustable seats, and storage space. The ergonomics of the operating position were specifically studied to enhance efficiency: all of the controls are immediately accessible; a multi-function controller allows precise one-handed operation, whether in simple or combined movements. Furthermore, electronic assistance allows the absorption of all dynamic effects.
The HTL telescopic handlers are designed to handle all environments. Four-wheel drive and steering provide power and maneuverability and high ground clearance allow the handler can traverse rough terrain.
