Haulotte expands its successful RTJ telescopic range

Haulotte expands its successful RTJ telescopic range

Designed for working in challenging environments and tackling the most demanding projects the HT16 RTJ OPRO (HT46 RTJ OPRO in North America) shares the same design and performance characteristics as the other models in the Haulotte RTJ range. Incorporating Haulotte safety standards and latest innovations the new telescopic boom provides a dual platform capacity along with 4-wheel steering and is ideal for work up to 16 meters (46 feet) high. OUTSTANDING PRODUCTIVITY AND EXCELLENT ALL-TERRAIN CAPABILITIES The latest addition to the RTJ range is an outdoor telescopic boom designed for versatile applications: heavy construction finishing maintenance sports and other events. It perfectly combines efficiency with excellent all-terrain ability. HT16 RTJ OPRO boosts your productivity The new RTJ machine has the best outreach on the market and offers a weight capacity of 250 kg (550 lb). For applications requiring heavy equipment the dual-load option increases the basket load capacity to 350 kg (770 lb). Haulotte’s new telescopic boom elevates the operator to the work area quickly (less than 1 minute to full height) thanks to quick and simultaneous movements associated with a 360° turret rotation. The mechanical axle drive allows for the use of a smaller simpler engine (24hp18.5 kW) while maintaining the same performances as other RTJ booms. Thanks to the smaller engine the telescopic boom eliminates the need for a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC). In STAGE V regulated countries there is also no requirement to use a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Superior agility and maneuverability on all terrains The HT16 RTJ OPRO (HT46 RTJ OPRO in North America) easily climbs over obstacles and slopes up to 45%. Operators can elevate on uneven surfaces even with a significant tilt angle of 5° whatever the boom angle. The operator controlled locking rear differential allows maximum traction in the most difficult rough terrain situations. Proportional controls guarantee smooth operation and precise movements on the way up to the work area. The new telescopic boom operates anywhere even on the roughest terrain. It is the only machine of its category featuring 4-wheel steering. In 4-wheel steering mode the turning radius is shortened enabling the driver to maneuver in tight areas. Crab mode facilitates motion in all directions making it easier to access the work area. NO COMPROMISES ON SAFETY AND ERGONOMICS The HT16 RTJ OPRO telescopic boom (HT46 RTJ OPRO in North America) is a reliable machine combining robust design with ergonomic controls and integrating Haulotte’s exclusive innovations: Activ’Lighting System and Activ’Shield Bar for optimal safety. Improved robustness and driving comfort Haulotte has paid attention to the strength and reliability of the materials used in its new machine. All of the high-quality components come from market leading suppliers; the controls cover and tray are made of ultra-solid composite material and pins are protected against corrosion. Its ergonomic control box with joysticks enabling proportional commands offers improved driving comfort: up to 4 movements can be cumulated! Exclusive innovations to work in complete safety In line with other RTJ equipment the new telescopic boom embeds a high performance lighting system. Haulotte Activ’Lighting System guarantees impressive visibility for safe loading operations in low light conditions: the lights integrated in the machine design illuminate the driving zone and both control panels. The Haulotte Activ’Shield Bar system integrated into the control panel reduces the risk of overhead crushing injuries. In an entrapment situation the operator is pushed towards the bar and the machine stops automatically. The safety gap provides a clearance for the operator. A SUSTAINABLE DESIGN TO IMPROVE THE TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP Haulotte paid special attention to the material and components used in the machine to improve machine lifespan and parts durability. Combined with exclusive innovations it enables rental companies and customers to save maintenance time and money. Modular design with easy component access for quick repairs HT16 RTJ OPRO (HT46 RTJ OPRO in North America) meets all Haulotte design standards. Sensitive elements such as the steering cylinders jib and cable channel are protected to avoid damage. All components requiring regular maintenance are easily accessible making maintenance operations and damaged parts replacement simple and less time-consuming. Hose routing is designed to prevent friction and leaks. Finally the 16 meter (46 feet) telescopic boom has a simple dependable engine that only requires basic maintenance for greater cost effectiveness. Haulotte Activ’screen : an on-board diagnostic tool Haulotte Activ’Screen makes life easy for users and technicians every day providing access to machine configuration information on machine functions and preventive maintenance recommendations. The advanced diagnostic program saves time and money and maximizes machine uptime. All Haulotte Activ’Screen functions are available on Haulotte Diag the free mobile app that lets technicians conduct wireless machine configuration and diagnostics. Haulotte Stop Emission System: reduced running time and maintenance intervals HT16 RTJ OPRO (HT46 RTJ OPRO in North America) benefits from an automatic start & stop system stopping the engine after an idle period of 90 seconds. The engine restarts instantly when the deadman pedal is pressed. This integrated innovation means reduced operating costs and improved residual value as fuel consumption is reduced up to 20%. It also increases the comfort of MEWP workers and people nearby thanks to reduced pollution and noise annoyances.

Schickling rental receives delivery of a Genie® 4-m (13- ft) platform

Schickling rental receives delivery of a Genie® 4-m (13- ft) platform

This April Schickling Arbeitsbühnen GmbH based in Visbek became one of the first rental companies in Germany to receive the new Genie® 4-m (13- ft) platform. Having acquired this aftermarket accessory for use with its 21.81-m (71 ft) Genie® S®-65 XC™ boom lift in just a few weeks Schickling has already seen the benefits that this new option provides in terms of saving operators time on jobs as well as enabling work to continue while maintaining social distance. “We chose to purchase the Genie 4-m (13-ft) platform because we could see that used with our Genie S-65 XC booms lift it would offer the perfect combination of 21.81 m (7` ft) maximum work height and up to 270-kg (600 lb) lift capacity providing a solution for a wide range of access tasks” explains company owner and general manager Elmar Schickling. “So far after using this solution to give the signage of our depot a good clean it has already been rented out on several occasions to install outdoor sunshades and awnings. Thanks to its extra length our new platform enabled operators to complete the entire installation across the full length of the job including the fitting of the mechanisms on both sides of the awnings. We see this as a great fit with many similar applications during the summer season.” “Additionally the platform’s increased dimensions (4-m13-ft long x 0.91-m3-ft wide) means that even with cumbersome materials there is less need to reposition the machine and more space for people to work in which saves time” Schickling continues. He adds: “Roofing guttering and the installation of plumbing and electrics at height are among the additional applications that our customers will be able to take advantage thanks to the benefits of our new Genie S-65 XC boom and 4-m (13-ft) platform combo!” And right now while social distancing is paramount and the International Powered Access Federation’s (IPAF) recommends that only one person should work in a standard MEWP platform — the extra-large workspace of the new Genie 4-m platform offers additional utility. Schickling concludes: “Our new Genie 4-m platform has proved to be an even more timely acquisition than initially expected. Thanks to its increased dimensions it provides an ideal solution that enables two people to work together when applications require while maintaining the recommended safe 1.5 - 2 m (6 ft) distance. We couldn’t have asked for more.“

Trio for efficient material supply

Trio for efficient material supply

The three new tow tractor models P C P C B and P60 C from Linde Material Handling are compact and offer outstanding maneuverability versatile equipment features and a wide range of safety systems. New tow tractor series from Linde Material Handling They make moving loads more comfortable safer and more efficient – even in confined spaces: the three new tow tractor models P40 C P40 C B and P60 C from Linde Material Handling have a narrow chassis and offer outstanding maneuverability versatile equipment features and a wide range of safety systems. Tow tractors have become indispensable in many transport processes. These all-rounders are mostly used as towing vehicles for logistic trains for example to supply production in industrial plants deliver goods to shops in airport terminals serve meals in hospitals – or as “shelves on wheels” in warehouses and distribution centers. Linde Material Handling is presenting three new tractor models each of which offers a choice between lithium-ion and lead-acid batteries: The Linde P40 C with four tons load capacity 800 Newton nominal tractive force and a maximum travel speed of 813 kilometers per hour (withwithout load). The Linde P40 C B with four tons load capacity 800 Newton nominal tractive force and maximum travel speed of 810 kilometers per hour (withwithout load). The Linde P60 C with six tons load capacity 1200 Newton nominal tractive force and a maximum travel speed of 813 kilometers per hour (withwithout load). All models have a width of only 800 millimeters and can be easily maneuvered even in narrow aisles. From the operator’s platform the driver has an unobstructed view of the working environment trailer coupling and load – ensuring maximum visibility and safety. The tow tractors are designed so that the driver’s torso and limbs remain within the protective vehicle contours at all times. In the event of a collision robust bumpers absorb the force effectively. Performance and equipment meet the highest requirements The vehicles are equipped with numerous safety systems as standard. An example is the Linde Curve Control which reduces speed when cornering depending on the steering wheel angle. The optional Linde Blue Spot projects a blue point of light onto the ground in front of the tractor thus warning pedestrians of the approaching vehicle. Glare-free LED headlights give the driver an excellent view of the road ahead even in poorly lit aisles. The vehicles are brought to a standstill by three independently operating brake systems. The electromagnetic servo brake (Linde Brake Control) is connected to the emergency stop switch and automatically acts as the so-called dead man’s function when the driving switch is released. The vehicle stops also automatically when the driver steps off the platform. The hydraulically assisted braking system in turn reacts proportionally to the load weight: the heavier the load the more braking force. Other advantages of Linde tow tractors include the optimized platform suspension which reduces human vibrations up to 30 percent compared to previous models. For best possible shock absorption it can also be adjusted depending on the weight of the operator. The wide low entry the height-adjustable steering wheel and an adjustable backrest with folding seat offer the operator a high level of comfort. Double castor wheels ensure optimum stability and traction in all driving situations. Four types of wheels offering different material and grip properties are available depending on the ambient conditions as well as the conditions of the ground to be driven on. If the tow tractor is part of a logistic train (“Linde Load Train”) there is an optional remote control available for the trailers. The optional modular Linde Connect fleet management is used for access control vehicle and driver administration maintenance planning shock sensors and usage analysis as well as zone-dependent speed adjustment.

Selecting the Right Type of Lifts

Engineering and construction are all about selecting the right tool. This is one of the reasons why you must make the best choice while selecting your equipment/machinery for the next project. 

If you are looking for a Lift than you must keep in mind the purpose of buying it. The clarity in mind related to the type of usage will help you choose the right Lift from a huge variety of Lift models available in the market. 

There is a certain specification that needs to be considered while buying a lift.

Below are the key specifications:

  • Horsepower: You need to understand that horsepower is the measurement of efficiency of a Lift. Higher horsepower would indicate the fact that the lift can pull the heavier object.
  • Size: The size of the frame is important for making the right move. If you are into a road construction project, you won't mind having a wide framed lift. On the other hand, if you are in a building construction project you may like to have a lift that has a smaller frame that fits in the construction site.
  • Attachments: A lift can have many attachments in the arms and this makes it flexible to do multiple tasks. This needs to be considered while buying the lift for your construction project.
