….Shining on Innovation!
HT23RTJ: the prototype of the new rough-terrain telescopic boom was previewed at Intermat.
This aerial work platform has been designed by our R&D department in close collaboration with a panel of customers to meet the needs of a range of industries working at heights up to 23m.
This new telescopic boom achieves the best performance in its class:
- The best working envelope
- The fastest lifting speed
- The best comfort
- Excellent manoeuvrability
This new boom has an incomparable lifting speed: reaching full height in 53 seconds and increasing productivity three fold in this product segment.
An optimal manoeuvrability is a result of the best turning radius of its class with 4 wheel steer and drive making it easy to operate on congested building sites and/or in tight spaces. There are 3 driving modes: two-wheel steer, four wheel steer and crab and with centralized control, the four wheels are controlled simultaneously, allowing the steering movements to be operated more quickly and safely - Operators have a high level of driving control at full speed, with jib raised for better visibility of the wheels and obstacles.
The new telescopic boom HT23RTJ has oscillating axles as standard and excellent rough-terrain ability. This machine also has differential lock, and a narrow chassis which enables it to be operated in the most congested environments.
Particular attention has been paid to the rigidity of materials. The boom and the jib are made of high elastic modulus steel making them very stable and safe to operate. Similarly, for unmatched performance in terms of simultaneous movements, special care has been taken to optimise the capacity of the hydraulic circuit. The operator can achieve maximum control in safety and comfort. The chassis is controlled by a hydraulic system that makes the machine extremely reliable.
All components were selected to high standards. Extension of the boom is performed by cables; it is no longer necessary to dismantle the boom to replace the cables. Components are easy to access and to dismantle.
The HT23RTJ is the first machine to have the new Haulotte fully modular basket which is easy and cost effective to repair.
The new telescopic boom will be available from November 2012 in Europe and early 2013 in North America.
