The new electric rough-terrain Star 6 Crawler vertical mast from Haulotte offers excellent terrain capabilities, providing easy access to all jobsites. It can be used both indoor and outdoor, up to 6 m working height. The machine is ideal for various applications such as maintenance, finishing and landscaping works.
The crawling system not only enables the mast to go over the roughest terrains, but also significantly reduces the ground pressure, which is essential when driving on sensitive floors. The machine can get over unstable, wet or uneven grounds and cross slopes up to 25%. A mobile axis on the intermediate oscillating rollers provides an optimal ground adherence.
The Star 6 Crawler can elevate inside and outside on any kind of flat surface. It is particularly suited for working on fragile floors, because of its low ground pressure. Load capacity of the machine is 200 kg, allowing two operators to work indoors. For better comfort and efficiency, a 40 cm basket extension offers an extra outreach. The AC motors deliver high torque and great manoeuvrability. With a narrow turning radius, operators can manoeuvre in highly confined spaces.
For the platform, a non-skid step integrated into the machine’s design and a swing door entry gate enable a safe entry. The vibration-proof rubber buffers under the platform ensure a smooth lowering. The ergonomic control box gathers all commands together, so that they are all accessible with one hand. For maximum flexibility, the Star 6 Crawler can be lifted lengthwise during transport phases, thanks to its dedicated forklift pockets.
All components are protected against water projections and are easily accessible, for simple servicing. The Star 6 Crawler is equipped with AGM batteries and asynchronous motors, which require no regular maintenance. The machine’s simple design with no chain and no cable minimises risks of breakage. The tracks and charger plug are also protected from shocks as they are located inside the chassis frame. To save time in troubleshooting, operators can access to the Activ’Screen display and functions thanks to the Haulotte Diag app.
According to Haulotte, the Star 6 Crawler vertical mast is available for pre-order now, and will be available for sale in the second half of 2020 in Europe and Asia Pacific countries (except Russia).
