The new ‘Star’ of Haulotte

Haulotte is expanding its popular vertical mast range with the launch of Star 8S (Star 20 in the US) to work efficiently up to 8 m. This multipurpose machine is ideal for indoor use such as finishing works, maintenance and restoration, logistics and distribution, and more.

The Star 8S has a load capacity of 200 kg and travel speed of 4.5 km/hr. Fitted with deep-cycle batteries, the machine allows operators to perform their daily tasks all day long.

With a narrow turning radius, the Star 8S can manoeuvre in highly restricted spaces. Combining high torque with precise and smooth control, the AC motors deliver excellent precision and comfort for the machine to go to hard-to-reach areas.

For increased flexibility, the Star 8S can be lifted lengthwise or widthwise during transport phases. Thanks to its automatic protection system against potholes, the machine can get over numerous obstacles, and cross slopes of 25%.

Equipped with smooth proportional movements, control and manoeuvring aloft are intuitive, secure and precise. The Star 8S offers higher stability, and a non-skid step has been integrated into the machine’s design to allow a safe entry in the platform. The basket extension provides additional space and a further reach of 40 cm.

To ensure less maintenance, the Star 8S is designed with the Haulotte Activ’Screen on-board diagnostic tool. Simple to use, it provides operators with key information. All pins, nuts and metal parts have been specially treated to guarantee optimum resistance to corrosion, said Haulotte. The two batteries swing-out trays can open easily, and a quick-open inspection hatch enables easy access to the hydraulic block to optimise downtime costs. Asynchronous motors also require no regular maintenance.
