HAULOTTE Australia has introduced an Australian-developed automatic load management system (LMS) that is said to pioneer stringent operating standards, especially for suspended jib or hook loads over 3t.
The system is designed to ensure telehandlers are safe, and exceed mandatory Australian Standards AS1418.19, AS1418.5 and AS1418.10 covering suspended loads over 3t. The system programs the machine to electronically recognise the correct tool parameters and rating charts for each of the many tools and implements that can be fitted to telehandlers.
This includes lifting materials with the forklift attachment, to lifting suspended loads with jibs, to lifting people in elevated work platforms, to fitting a bucket and moving materials. The system analyses incoming data to automatically ensure the machine is operating within safe working limits.
