Haulotte Group has upgraded its rough-terrain scissor lifts, the C10DX and C12DX. This scissor lift range is particularly suited to a number of rental applications and industries such as external maintenance, electrical, plumbing, and painting.
New Kubota engines are fitted in the C10DX and C12DX. Besides complying with Tier 4 emissions standards, the new engines are said to provide a significant reduction in noise while also reducing fuel consumption (-5% compared to the current engine).
Four-wheel drive, ground clearance of 270 mm (10 in), and automatic hydraulic differential lock enable the machines to climb steep slopes and work productively on the most uneven ground, says the company.
Aware of the daily demands that aerial work platforms have to withstand, Haulotte says its engineers paid special attention to designing in robustness. The new design includes outriggers that are now fully within the machine footprint to prevent damage caused by impact. The bumper and design of the first step make it much easier to access the platform and make the machine much more robust.
Both models are comfortable and easy to operate with fully proportional controls. One switch deploys and now also retracts the four outriggers at the same time. The turning radius of 3.50 m (11.5 ft) makes it easy to maneuver.
The new upper control box is more durable and reliable due to a new plug on the upper control box, which makes it easier to connect and disconnect. Sensitive controls on the upper control box have been replaced by switches for easy maintenance. Also, a new paint treatment has been used on the control box to make it longer lasting (lifetime is four times longer).
Maintenance of the C10DX and C12DX are said to have become easier due to a better quality hood closure, ensuring better strength and durability. Finally, self-diagnostics increases the speed of diagnosis and maintenance.
Other new options that recently became available include foldable guard-rails, a 2.5-kW hydraulic generator, and a swing-door gate.
