Haulotte redesigns Compact RT scissors
By Lindsey Anderson17 July 2012
Haulotte Group has resdesigned and improved their rough-terrain scissor lift Compact range: C2668RT and C3368RT
The C2668RT and C3368RT are now fitted with a Kubota Tier IV engine which complies with the Tier IV standard. The new engine offers significant noise reduction and reduces fuel consumption (-5% compared to the current engine) and emissions.
The units also feature increased rough terrain capacities with four-wheel drive, 11-inch ground clearance and automatic hydraulic differential lock enable the machines to climb steep slopes and work productively on the most uneven ground.
Haulotte also said, "Aware of the daily demands of a scissor lift, special attention was paid to the machine's durability." The new design includes standard outriggers which are fully within the machine's footprint to prevent potential impact damage. The re-designed bumper also serves as the first step for much easier entry into the platform.
"The two new models are easy to operate with full proportional and ergonomically designed controls," Haulotte said. "One switch can deploy and retract all 4 outriggers simultaneously with auto leveling capabilities. The outside turning radius is 11 ft. 6 in. making it easy to maneuver."
A new Can Bus connection on the upper control box has also been added. The pressure button controls have been replaced with switches and the control box has been powder coated to extend the life of the finish by 4 times, according to the company.
Access to service the C2668RT and C3368RT has also been improved. "A better quality hood closure and an additional trap door to the engine and components are included in the redesign. Relocation of the self-diagnostics tool increases the speed to diagnose and maintenance equipment," the company said.
To meet the needs of the North American market; foam filled tires, swing entry gate and foldable guard rails will be standard on the RT scissor line.
