Haulotte United Forklift
The delivery of its 1000th Haulotte machine marks a solid and ongoing business partnership between national access equipment specialist United Forklift and Access Solutions and aerial work platform manufacturers, the Haulotte Group.

The 1000th Haulotte machine delivered to United was an Optimum 8 AC electric scissor lift – Haulotte's current flagship product.

According to Keith Clarke, General Manager of Haulotte Australia, the two companies have been working together for the past five to six years and have developed a collaboration.

United Forklift and Access Solutions' relationship with Haulotte extends back to 2010, with the delivery of a HA120PX rough terrain boom lift. Since then, United Equipment's national Haulotte range has expanded to cover the spectrum of scissor lifts, boom lifts and telehandlers.

"The partnership developed when United Forklift and Access Solutions was looking to fill a gap in its fleet some years ago, and looked at the Haulotte HA120PX, a small diesel, rough terrain boom. At the time, United was looking for someone to partner with and Haulotte was very happy to work with them," Keith said.

United Forklift and Access Solutions is one of Australia's largest privately owned forklift and access equipment companies with operations in all states.

United has the complete range of Haulotte products over eight ranges of products spanning sixty different models.

"United also does a lot of retail sales of Haulotte machines via a substantial branch network extending across all the major metropolitan centres as well as regional areas in Victoria and Western Australia.

"United is a sleeping giant. Now with over 1000 Haulotte machines in its rental fleet, United is a big business. The company has over 100 field service vans Australia wide (fully maintained state of the art GPS service vehicles operating 24/7 and accredited operating training programs) and manage this and the forklift sales and service market too," Keith said.

United provides short and long term rental options as well as flexible finance options on its complete range of equipment and can structure a competitive lease or purchase financial package.

Haulotte United Forklift
United Forklift and Access Solutions' General Manager Trent Osborne said the delivery to United of its 1000th Haulotte advanced technology machine demonstrates United's ongoing commitment to the leadership and quality of its already large and expanding national rental fleet and broad access solutions offering.

"The handover to us of this latest Haulotte machine is part of the continual process of updating our fleet with new and productive equipment that keeps us at the global forefront of safety and efficiency innovations in our industry.

"United values its long-term partnership with Haulotte, built up over many years, to establish an ongoing relationship that delivers many customer benefits, including the opportunity to work closely with Haulotte as a global leader and technology innovator across 23 countries.

"The innovative rental specification of Haulotte equipment is part of the expanding stream of world-class technologies arriving in Australia over the new year, which will continue to reinforce Haulotte's important role among United's suppliers of quality machinery, built to offer a leading return on investment.

"We will continue to work extensively in partnership with them to provide input for products that deliver optimum performance for tough Australian conditions, including strength, durability and ergonomic design."

According to Keith, the new Optimum 8 is a full-featured machine with a great drive system and built-in diagnostics.

It features maintenance-free AC motors; high-precision driving for safety, productivity and confined spaces; proportional and quick movements; ACTIV'Screen onboard diagnostics for minimum downtime; and responsive sales and service by United locations throughout Australia.

"Haulotte's extensive product range and diversity – coupled with quality manufacturing, latest technology and safety features – demonstrates Haulotte's commitment to providing quality products focused on the needs of end-users."
