Haulotte goes electric with new Pulseo generation

The HA20 LE and HA20 LE Pro are the first models in the Pulseo product line from Haulotte, offering lower energy costs as well as reduced air and noise pollution.

These new electric, rough-terrain mobile elevating platforms can be used in public places such as shopping centres, airports, concert halls, pedestrian streets, etc, and also in areas where low-emission and low-noise are required like hospitals and schools.

The machines’ oscillating axle and four-wheel drive deliver excellent performance and stability for outdoor applications. Solid cured-on tyres provide the wheels with the flexibility needed to properly hold the ground, even on the roughest terrain. With their non-marking tyres, the machines can also work indoor.

Thanks to its silent electric operation, the Pulseo series can be used at any time with less inconvenience to its surroundings. Its low tail swing and easy handling allow for operation in confined spaces.

The machines’ fast elevation speed, 360° continuous turret rotation and simultaneous movements work together to enhance productivity. Dual-load models make it possible to increase the load capacity while adapting the working envelope, leading to stability.

The Pulseo machines offer proportional controls that ensure precise movements, resulting in smooth operation on the way up to the work area. The Haulotte Activ’Shield Bar 2.0 secondary guarding device system is available to prevent the risk of entrapment. Protected by the Safety Gap, the operator maintains easy access to controls and unobstructed visibility.

The Haulotte Activ’Lighting System ensures safe performance of the delicate procedures to load and unload the equipment. Comprising 11 LED spotlights, it provides ideal illumination of the basket, controls and the manoeuvring area around the machine.

Furthermore, high-capacity batteries and the ability to lower the basket by force of gravity with no power consumption maximise the battery performance for a full day’s work. If extended battery power is required, the on-board range extender engine can rapidly recharge the batteries, while the machine retains its full operating capacity during the charge cycle. At the end of a shift, the built-in charger and its smart power management module optimise both the charge and lifespan of the batteries.

The Haulotte Activ’Energy Management system, developed in partnership with Liten - a major European research institute and a driving force behind the development of sustainable energy technologies of the future - is designed to extend the lifespan of the batteries.

The Pulseo generation also features maintenance-free electric motors, extended maintenance intervals, easy access to components and simple battery maintenance. The Haulotte Activ’Screen system makes life easier for users and technicians on a daily basis. It can be used to configure the machine, provides users with information to help them identify alarms, allows them access the list of preventative maintenance procedures, and also helps to diagnose and resolve malfunctions, if necessary. All Haulotte Activ’Screen functions are available on mobile devices via the Haulotte Diag app.

The Pulseo generation was recently on display at bauma China 2018 in Shanghai.
