Haulotte unveils new generation of HA20 RTJ articulating boom lift

The new version of Haulotte HA20 RTJ rough terrain articulating boom lift has been completely redesigned to meet today’s demanding jobsite requirements. This model features a working height of up to 20 m.

Versatile and easy to use, the HA20 RTJ is suitable for challenging outdoor terrain. With its articulated arm and 11.9 m horizontal outreach, the boom lift can overcome obstacles and access hard-to-reach working areas. Furthermore, the Haulotte Dual Reach option can increase load and tilt capacities.

On the jobsite, there are many situations where users need to carry a lot of weight in the basket while working on sloping ground. To tackle these challenges and boost productivity, Haulotte offers the Dual Reach option, now available on the new HA20 RTJ.

The Dual Reach option increases the load in the basket from 250 to 350 kg, and enables working on sloping ground up to 6°. Once the system is activated, the machine continues to elevate and operate smoothly, limiting the number of back-and-forth movements between the ground and the working area.

Ideal for rough terrain conditions

Equipped with standard four-wheel drive and two-wheel steering, the HA20 RTJ can move easily over all types of terrain. Its oscillating axle enables the machine to adapt to various conditions, keeping the wheels in constant contact with the ground.

The automatic differential lock provides extra traction on uneven or sloppy ground, allowing the operator to maintain full manoeuvrability and navigate obstacles without difficulty. The combination of a new engine and a new hydraulic architecture (axle drive) helps the boom lift retain its excellent rough terrain capabilities.

The HA20 RTJ is also equipped with all Haulotte safety features. Thanks to its proportional controls, the boom lift offers precise, jerk-free driving and guarantees a smooth approach to the working area. The Haulotte Activ’Lighting System comprises 10 LED spotlights, which make it easier for the operator to load and unload the machine in low-light conditions.

The Haulotte Activ’Shield Bar enhances operator safety. In a entrapment situation, the operator is pushed against the bar, and the machine stops automatically. The wide clearance protects the operator from being crushed.

The engine of the new HA20 RTJ (rated at less than 18.5 kW), combined with optimised mechanical and hydraulic systems, delivers optimised torque while reducing fuel consumption by 35-50%. In addition, the new HA20 RTJ Pro boasts a 97% recyclability rate.

Haulotte has also redesigned the boom lift’s chassis and integrated an improved hydraulic architecture with axle drive. As such, the number of hydraulic hoses has been reduced by 35%, access to components and maintenance operations are facilitated, and downtime is reduced.

What’s more, the HA20 RTJ Pro offers several on-board diagnostic solutions to facilitate fleet management and minimise downtime. These tools enable the collection of machine operating data, the resolution of fault code, and the rapid identification of troubleshooting:

  • The SHERPAL telematics solution enables users to monitor the status of their machines remotely and in real time. It considerably reduces downtime by providing access to fault codes and actions to be taken. Telematics data are also useful for organising the routes of technical teams and preparing interventions.

  • The Haulotte Activ’Screen on-board diagnostics tool gives access to machine parameters and provides key information on machine status in real time.

  • Both functions are also available via the Haulotte Diag mobile application, which also offers advanced diagnostics with detailed resolution procedures.
