Leading national access equipment specialist United Forklift and Access Solutions is celebrating the landmark delivery of its 1000th high safety and efficiency unit from one of the world's largest aerial work platform manufacturers, Haulotte.

United Forklift and Access Solutions' General Manager Mr Trent Osborne says the delivery to United of its 1000th Haulotte advanced technology machine -an Optimum 8 AC electric scissor lift -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 highly 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 coming 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."

"In addition to the benefits for Australia of Haulotte's leading edge innovation, experience and safety, 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."

Haulotte Australia General Manager Mr Keith Clarke says the new Optimum 8 is a real game-changer for rental companies and all users driven by efficiency and versatility, being a full-featured machine with a great drive system and built-in diagnostics.

“The delivery of this first Optimum 8 AC to United’s Perth office underlines their commitment to the industry’s latest safety, service and efficiency technologies, keeping United’s fleet at the forefront of the industry in Australia.”

This win-win relationship between United and Haulotte is exemplified by the features of the new Optimum 8, says Mr Osborne, including:

  1. Maintenance-free AC motors
  2. High-precision driving, for safety, productivity and confined spaces
  3. Proportional and quick movements
  4. ACTIV’Screen onboard diagnostics for minimum downtime
  5. Responsive sales and service provided by United locations throughout Australia, which bring together many years’ local experience in Haulotte product, including maximising uptime

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 longevity in the relationship is founded upon the instilled values both companies share,” says Mr Osborne. “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 – the customers.”
