Lifting specialist Haulotte group has added another telescopic boom to it's line-up. According to the company, operator comfort has been improved on the HB86 TJ+ , thanks to the new model's proportional movements and self-leveling systems.
Rigidity has been improved in boom and jib with a new hexagonal cross section providing greater stability to both models. Additionally, the big-boom has a differential wheel lock and an oscillating axle, to help provide access for hard-to-reach areas.
The company only opened in the Middle East in November 2007, joining big names such as Genie and Terex who have become long established in the region. However, Haulotte Group has been on the Paris stock exchange since 1998 and the firm has been manufacturing for more than 100 years. Besides aerial work platforms, other products include telescopic handlers, multi-jobs and self-propelled cranes. With a US $752.8million turnover in 2006, the group also operates in Europe, Asia and the USA as well as Australia and Russia.
