French aerial work platform manufacturer Haulotte has upgraded its COMPACT range of electric scissor lifts with five new models. They have been redesigned to ensure maximum utilisation rate, increased safety and simplified maintenance, the company said.
The new additions offer working heights, from 8 to 14m and load capacities from 250 to 450kg, while the COMPACT 8N, 10 and 12 models can operate indoors and outdoors without height or load restrictions.
“The slab electric scissors market segment is extremely competitive. The new models of the COMPACT range are easy to use and ensure maximum productivity. They are versatile and suitable for a wide range of applications, such as industrial maintenance, finishing works, or during the construction phase,” said Baptiste Roland, Product Marketing Manager at Haulotte, on the announcement.
Two chassis widths are available: the models with a narrow chassis of 0.8m offer greater maneuverability, while the wide models (1.2m chassis) have a larger working area. The switch from hydraulic drive to asynchronous motors is also expected to improve the energy efficiency of the machine.
The new COMPACT scissors can be equipped with the SHERPAL telematics solution to increase uptime. The SHERPAL connected box is said to enable machines to be located in real time and share their operational status. An alert is sent when dangerous behavior is identified such as overload or deactivation of safety functions. By setting time slots and work zones per site, fleet managers can also use the telematics systems to easily detect out-of contract use.
In recent times, the firm has pushed strongly into electric machinery, in November 2020, it launched its new electric PULSEO scissor lifts, and in March 2021, it introduced its new SIGMA 16 electric articulating booms. In February 2021, it also redesigned its service contracts offering.
