Hostile environment package, turf-protecting outrigger pads and white noise alarms improvements added
Haulotte has recently launched a variety of options and accessories that maximise productivity and safety for operators of its mobile elevating work platforms (MEWP).
The new options include hostile environment packages to improve machine lifespan, outrigger pads to protect the soil or turf that the MEWP is operating on and a white noise alarm on Haulotte machines to reduce noise disturbance in the areas the units are working in.
According to Haulotte, two recently introduced hostile environment packages protect key components on its machines, such as control boxes or boom sections, from debris and oxidation.
The packages are meant for machines working in environments where dust, sand, salt fog, humidity or fine particles may cause irreparable damages on booms. These packages are available on the Haulotte HA26 RTJ O / RTJ PRO, HA32 RTJ PRO and HT28 RTJ O / RTJ PRO models. Haulotte also said that they will be deployed on the whole RTJ and LE range within the year.
The new outrigger pads to protect the soil are designed for big booms, whose axle extensions require the use of outriggers. The outrigger pads distribute the weight of the boom on a larger surface, thus significantly reducing ground pressure.
According to Haulotte, they are light and water-repellent, and are made from high-quality recycled plastic, offering good protection against water, corrosion and slippage. Coming in a box, they measure 50x50cm and can be stored in the chassis when not used.
The outrigger pads are available on all big booms, such as the HA32 RTJ PRO, HA41 RTJ PRO and HT43 RTJ PRO.
The Haulotte white noise alarm is meant to reduce noise disturbance on job-sites, where alarms coming from all types of machines can cause major noise disturbances.
The Haulotte white noise alarm concentrates the sound in the danger zone. Because the alarm is only perceptible in a restricted working area, this new option enables operators to work in urban areas without disturbing people nearby. This new option is now available on the HA20 LE/LE PRO, Optimum 8, Star 8, Star 10 and the whole Compact and RTJ range.
