Among the products Haulotte Group displayed at ConExpo 2014 was its HT67RTJ (rough terrain with jib) telescopic boom lift, which is now in production. Working with a panel of customers, Haulotte designed the new boom lift to meet the needs of a broad range of industries, with its working envelope, lifting speed, and proportional, simultaneous movements being standout features.

Bernie Duque, vice president of AWP marketing and product management, commented, “This is the next generation of Haulotte lifts. It is focused on providing performance, value, and up-time for the customer. The HT67RTJ offers the best working envelope in its size range, is maneuverable, and can reach full working height in just 56 seconds."

The HT67RTJ has a platform working height of 67’5”, horizontal outreach of 60’5”, and optional dual load capacity that gives the machine a lifting capacity of up to 1,000 lbs.

The new boom lift features four-wheel drive and a steering selector that lets the operator choose two-wheel, four-wheel, or crab steering. With centralized controls, the four wheels are controlled simultaneously, allowing the steering movements to operate quickly and safely. Additionally, the HT67RTJ has a high level of driving control at full speed with the jib raised for better visibility of the wheels and obstacles.

According to Haulotte, the boom of the HT67RTJ has been designed to ensure the best rigidity on the market and the capacity of the hydraulic circuit has been optimized to increase performance of simultaneous movements.

Oscillating axles and an automatic differential lock allow optimum rough-terrain travel. 

The boom is extended by cables, so it is no longer necessary to dismantle the boom to replace the extension system. Components are easy to access and maintain, and a diagnostic display for fault and service alerts is integrated into the lower control box, enabling pre-diagnosis to save service time.  

Additionally, the HT67RTJ is the first machine to have the new Haulotte fully modular basket which allows the end user to replace only the damaged component instead of changing the entire basket.  

 “The HT67RTJ offers the power and performance to handle rugged applications, and its wide range of options enable customization for top performance. Again, it’s all about providing value to the customer,” concluded Duque.
