Haulotte worked very closely with its customers to design this new machine, Keith said.
“The improvements in this new generation machine will help our customers become more successful. This machine is incredibly smooth and fast to operate. We left in all the extras our customers said were important, including 360 continuous slew and 4-wheel steer. We have also added an oscillating axel and on board diagnostics,” Keith said.
“The HA16RTJ PRO has been designed to meet customers’ requirements with a machine that is simple, robust, reliable and easy to maintain with optimal performance and a high level of safety.”
Alfasi has been a customer of Haulotte for four years and among its fleet of over 1,200 machines including cranes, telehandlers and EWPs, has a fleet of Haulotte machines from 19ft scissors to 100ft booms with Haulotte now also its preferred supplier of telehandlers.
Gary Murphy, General Manager at Alfasi Hire said: “After seeing the HA16RTJ pro in at the preview launch last year, we ordered these machines to ensure Alfasi Hire always has cutting edge equipment to offer our customers.
“We believe the new range of boom lifts, starting with the HT23RTJ and now the HA16RTJ Pro, are the next generation of boom lifts in terms of technology, performance, serviceability and features. The productivity gains to the customer through faster operation, proportional controls, greater gradebility as well as ground clearance make these must have machines for our fleet. In addition the diagnostic tool and features are a class leading.
“Because safety is our number one priority, we have made it standard to have Haulotte’s Activ Shield (crush management system) fitted to all of our booms. Being a Quality and Safety certified business, we are serious about the commitment we make to not only providing the best machines but also a range of additional safety features not commonly found in the market. Activ Shield is an example of this commitment.” Gary said
