Haulotte selects Kohler to power two telehandlers


Aerial platforms and telehandlers manufacturer Haulotte Group has chosen the Kohler KDI 3404 in the 55kW calibration for two of its most successful telehandlers, the HTL 4014 and the HTL 4017, designed for markets subject to the Stage IV/Tier 4 Final standards.

“We were looking for an engine that, in addition to using emissions reduction technology that does not involve the use of DPF and SCR, would provide the same torque delivery of the Tier 3 engines we were using previously,” said Vincent Mazzoleni, telehandlers business unit manager.

“First of all, we chose the engines for their compliance with the requirements I mentioned – no particulate filter or SCR, and torque values in line with our expectations. Added to these elements were an engineering timeframe that was consistent with our program, and no less important, a competitive cost point.

“This choice allowed us to obtain a solid competitive advantage, as we were the first manufacturers of telescopic handlers to introduce on the market machines in the over-10m segment equipped with Tier 4 Final engines.”
