Haulotte scissor lift production starts in USA
The first US built Haulotte Optimum 1930 E scissor lift – the Optimum 8 in other markets - has rolled off the BilJax production line in Archibold Ohio.
The local engineering team has tweaked the design of the machine to improve the machine, including widening the platform slightly to provide a little more space and take it closer to the width of the machine.
