It was the excellent service that Haulotte offered that
tipped the scales in its favour, as the criterion “service”
is one of special importance to large machines — speed
and high availability are extremely important in this mar-
When asked why Gardemann described Haulotte as
the number-one choice in the field of large equipment,
Mr Müller said:
