Haulotte astounds Apex visitors
A remotely controlled 3 tonne capacity crane and a 3.5 tonne capacity telescopic handler were the highlights of the first day of the Apex show. Pierre Saubot, president of Haulotte, proudly revealed his latest products to Vertikal.net with the observation that “more and more often I see platforms incorrectly used to lift loads, now we offer two solutions”.
The telescopic handler is made in partnership with another European company, but Saubot would not reveal who, adding only that the partner company had not previously made telescopic handlers and is better know for agricultural products. The design of the telescopic handler has been produced in partnership with Haulotte. The TL 14-35 and TL 14-30 are rated at 3.5 tonnes/14 metres and 3 tonnes/17 metres radius respectively.

Pierre Saubot believes the remotely controlled Easy Crane will open new markets
Haulotte’s Easy Crane is in principle an AWP undercarriage with a Pinguely design boom mounted on it. It is a radio controlled unit and Saubot believes that it will be used by operators working in a basket at height. The Easy Crane gives 12 metres height under hook and can lift 3 metres. It is also available with forks instead of a hook and offers 360 degrees slewing.
