Rough-terrain telescopic MEWP

The Haulotte HT46 RTJ O/PRO shares the same design and performance characteristics as the other models in the Haulotte RTJ range, including a dual-platform capacity, 4-wheel steering and a reach of up to 46 feet high.

Haulotte sources report the new RTJ machine has the best outreach on the market and offers a weight capacity of 550 pounds for applications requiring heavy equipment, the dual-load option increases the basket load capacity to 770 pounds. It can elevate the operator to the work in less than one minute to full height and can simultaneously power the 360-degree turret rotation. The mechanical axle drive allows for the use of a 24 horsepower, simpler engine while maintaining the same performances as other RTJ booms. The smaller engine eliminates the need for a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) or Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).

The Haulotte HT46 RTJ O/PRO shares the same design and performance characteristics as the other models in the Haulotte RTJ range, including a dual-platform capacity, 4-wheel steering and a reach of up to 46 feet high.

It can climb over obstacles and slopes up to 45 percent. Operators can elevate on uneven surfaces, even with a significant tilt angle of 5 degrees, whatever the boom angle. The operator controlled locking rear differential allows maximum traction in the most difficult rough terrain situations. Proportional controlsguarantee smooth operation and precise movements on the way up to the work area.

The new telescopic boom operates anywhere, even on the roughest terrain. It is the only machine of its category featuring 4-wheel steering. In 4-wheel steering mode, the turning radius is shortened, enabling the driver to maneuver in tight areas. Crab mode facilitates motion in all directions, making it easier to access the work area.

Haulotte has paid attention to the strength and reliability of the materials used in its new machine. All of the high-quality components come from market leading suppliers; the controls cover and tray are made of ultra-solid composite material and pins are protected against corrosion. Its ergonomic control box with joysticks enabling proportional commands offers improved driving comfort: up to 4 movements can be cumulated!

In line with other RTJ equipment, the new telescopic boom embeds a high performance lighting system. Haulotte Activ’Lighting System guarantees impressive visibility for safe loading operations in low light conditions: the lights integrated in the machine design illuminate the driving zone and both control panels. The Haulotte Activ’Shield Bar system, integrated into the control panel, reduces the risk of overhead crushing injuries. In an entrapment situation, the operator is pushed towards the bar and the machine stops automatically. The safety gap provides a clearance for the operator.

Haulotte paid special attention to the material and components used in the machine to improve machine lifespan and parts durability. Combined with exclusive innovations, it enables rental companies and customers to save maintenance time and money.

HT46 RTJ O/PRO meets all Haulotte design standards. Sensitive elements such as the steering cylinders, jib and cable channel are protected to avoid damage. All components requiring regular maintenance are easily accessible, making maintenance operations and damaged parts replacement simple and less time-consuming. Hose routing is designed to prevent friction and leaks. Finally, the 46 feet telescopic boom has a simple, dependable engine that only requires basic maintenance for greater cost effectiveness.

The Haulotte Activ’Screen makes life easy for users and technicians every day, providing access to machine configuration, information on machine functions, and preventive maintenance recommendations. The advanced diagnostic program saves time and money and maximizes machine uptime. All Haulotte Activ’Screen functions are available on Haulotte Diag, the free mobile app that lets technicians conduct wireless machine configuration and diagnostics.

It also features an automatic start & stop system, stopping the engine after an idle period of 90 seconds. The engine restarts instantly when the deadman pedal is pressed. This integrated innovation means reduced operating costs and improved residual value as fuel consumption is reduced up to 20 percent. It also increases the comfort of MEWP workers and people nearby thanks to reduced pollution and noise annoyances.
