E-Reco system as standard for trucks
Ancenis, France

Manitou is offering, as standard, the E- Reco attachment-recognition system on its new-generation MRT EASY and MRT PRIVILEGE + ranges of rotative telescopic trucks.

The technology provides the load chart in real time, taking into account the rotation angle of the turret and the position of the machine's stabilisers, in accordance with the standard relative to mobile cranes.
