The Algerian Ministry of Defence has taken delivery of 10 units of Haulotte’s 17 metre/4,000kg HTL4017 telehandlers.
The units were delivered by Haulotte distributor Farrisia to the ECC construction engineering division of the ministry. The HTL4017 can take 2,500kg to its full height, and 700kg at its maximum forward reach of 12.9 metres.
Farissia also provided a full training session for six ECC employees on the safe use, efficient operation and routine maintenance of the new machines.
Farissia director Kada Marsel said: “We shared detailed information about the telehandlers and trained them to drive and park the machines. A focus was made on maintenance and safety. The delivery has been successfully completed.”
Didier Mertens, Haulotte general manager for Africa added: “We have received very positive feedback from our customers and hope to further develop the telehandler market in Africa thanks to our fruitful partnership. Five additional machines have already been delivered to Farissia – with three of them already sold.”
