Since the beginning of the year, Haulotte Africa received numerous orders for its telehandler range. Recently, Farrisia official distributor delivered ten HTL 4017 to ECC (Etablissement Central de Construction), a subsidiary of the Algerian Ministry of Defence specialising in carpentry and public works. Haulotte telehandlers are indeed much appreciated in African countries because of their outstanding productivity and safety.
Telehandlers are highly robust and versatile lifting machines able to carry out multiple functions such as forklift, crane and work platform. Haulotte’s wide range of HTL - compact, high lift and heavy load ranges - embedded several technologies enabling the operator to focus on lifting operations in complete safety. The ECC establishment placed precision and comfort aspects in the center of their project. The HTL 4017 was a great fit not only for its ergonomic cab, but also for its excellent drivability. Three driving modes assure excellent manoeuvrability in any environment (2 WS, 4 WS or crab steer). The inching pedal ensures a smooth and progressive driving to easily approach a structure. Thanks to proportional movements, manoeuvring is intuitive, secure and precise.
Farissia performed a training session to 6 ECC employees. “We shared detailed information about the telehandlers and trained them to drive and park the machines. A focus was made on maintenance and safety” said Kada Marsel, Director of Farissia. “The delivery has been successfully completed. We already have very positive feedback from our customers. We hope to develop the telehandler market in Africa thanks to our fruitful partnership”, added Didier Mertens, General Manager of Haulotte Africa. Five additional machines have been delivered to Farissia - 3 of them are already ordered by clients.
