Materials handling supplier Manitou Australia is launching its new telescopic farm loader to the agricultural market. Managing director Stuart Walker says it offers key benefits of safety, productivity and cost efficiency when compared to tractor front-end loader solutions. "The development of the Manitou MLT-X 627 is a direct response to users' need for a safe, robust, cost-effective solution." He adds it has a lift capacity of 2,700 kg and a lift height of nearly 6 m. "It is compatible with a wide range of Manitou attachments for a range of applications. "When fitted with a general purpose Ag bucket, [it] delivers 50% greater productivity than a tractor front-end loader and, in today's environment, farmers need every advantage they can find."
