Haulotte takes the turn of the circular economy

Europe’s leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms is launching RESTART by Haulotte: the first manufacturer’s program dedicated to the reconditioning of used aerial work platforms in Europe. This new model confirms the Group’s commitment to a more sustainable development.

RESTART by Haulotte : manufacturer certified used aerial work platforms

restart_en.jpgThe RESTART by Haulotte program was designed to meet the growing demand for Haulotte-branded reconditioned aerial work platforms.

«Our offer is positioned between the traditional used market, where aerial work platforms are sold as-is without warranty, and the new equipment market. This new model allows us to offer quality reconditioned equipment, available immediately at a reasonable price. At the same time, it helps us reduce our environmental impact,»

says Ludovic Jankov, Haulotte’s second-hand manager.

Professional reconditioning

To carry out this ambitious project, Haulotte has converted its factory in L’Horme (France) into a «manufacturer» reconditioning center for used aerial work platforms.

«It’s a first in Europe! With a covered area of 3,000 m², the RESTART Center relies on a high-performance industrial tool and the energy and technical know-how of Haulotte’s teams,»

says Emmanuel Chabaneix, director of the reconditioning site at Haulotte.


The selected platforms follow a precise industrial path: testing and detailed inspection by the experts of the RESTART Center, diagnosis, and then reconditioning according to Haulotte specifications. More than 50 control points are checked to guarantee reliable machines and optimal safety for future users.

Three levels of reconditioning

Haulotte offers three used aerial work platform reconditioning packages to meet all needs and budgets. A certificate attests that the machine complies with the regulations in force at the time of its manufacture.


Plaftorms ≤ 15 years
The platform from the VERIFIED program are depersonalized and thoroughly inspected. Mandatory recall campaigns are carried out, and all machine functions, including those related to safety, are checked and brought back into compliance.



Plaftorms ≤ 10 years
In addition to the operations included in the VERIFIED program, the CERTIFIED formula guarantees that safety-related parts have been replaced with new, genuine Haulotte parts. All components close to failure are repaired or replaced. Partial cosmetic modifications are performed by RESTART Center operators to give the machine a facelift. A three-month warranty* is applied upon delivery.



Platforms ≤ 6 years
The premium CERTIFIED+ offer completes the operations performed in the VERIFIED & CERTIFIED programs, with new batteries.
Components close to failure are replaced with new Haulotte parts. The machines are professionally painted in the paint-booth and have a
six-month warranty*.


The RESTART by Haulotte program is a real alternative to buying a new aerial work platform. From articulated boom lifts to telescopic boom lifts, including vertical masts and scissor lifts**, this reconditioning program is deployed throughout Europe.***
