Haulotte Introduces 86-foot Telescopic 'Big Boom'

The Haulotte Group, L'Horme, France, has introduced its new Big Boom HB86 TJ+. The machine has a telescopic jib that offers an additional reach of 16'5” to work in the most challenging working environments.

The HB86TJ+ is designed to make the operator's work easier in a wider range of working environments, thanks to its narrow fixed-width frame, an oscillating axle and differential wheel lock. The machine boasts an outreach of 75'6” and an 8-foot platform. The machine also has the capacity to lift loads of up to 772 pounds quickly, and proportional controls allow access to hard-to-reach worksites.

The boom and the jib, with its hexagonal cross section in high elastic modulus steel, are exceptionally rigid, providing greater stability to the HB86 TJ+ for improved operator comfort. The proportional movements and self-leveling system also add to the operator's comfort. The big boom HB86 TJ+ also benefits from the new generational control panel used in the HB135JRT (H43TPX).

The HB86 TJ+ will be on display at ConExpo in Las Vegas, Nev., in booth G-236.

In other company news, Haulotte plans to have service support centers in Chicago, Ill., and Houston, Texas, by the end of March, according to Chris Koch, general manager of Haulotte U.S. The facilities will have full-time support staff, parts inventory and machine inventory.
