First Haulotte Compacts to Australia
By Euan Youdale09 January 2023
Australia has received its first deliveries of Haulotte’s Compact range.
The new range was first previewed in the country at the HIRE22 exhibition in May last year, just after it was launched, allowing hire companies a preview of model before it hit the market there.
National sales manager for Haulotte Australia, Paul Sultana, said, “Having the preview model at HIRE22 was a great way to show the market what the new range would look like and some of the key features in the updates. Hire companies were impressed with its design and technology updates including the addition of the battery management system.”
The first few Compacts, which includes the battery Activ Energy Management system, began arriving last October and were delivered to New South Wales and Victorian distributors. More than 98 units have been delivered to the country and more are set to arrive in the country early this year.
Featuring five working heights, from 8m to 14m, with load capacities from 250kg to 450kg, the new machines are designed to add flexibility and higher utilisation potential to rental fleets. The machines include AC drive, which is designed to provide smooth operation, and allows easy maintenance and accessibility to components.
“We are looking forward to seeing these new models out there in the field,” added Sultana.
