Manitex Liftking redesigns flagship model with customer input

Thursday, 26 Feb 2015 ( #707 )
Liftking's updated M Series.
The recently improved and updated M Series is proving to be a real success for Manitex Liftking and its customers.

With over 40 years of heritage, the latest
M Series is built upon the strengths of previous versions while incorporating the latest technology and safety advancements. Customer input has always been a large contributor to the design strategy as evident in the new cab design with focus on improved ergonomics and function. By increasing the cab interior volume by over 17%, the operator benefits from more headroom and legroom while allowing the installation of a more powerful heater and larger suspension seat. The newly designed A/C system is now integrated into the cab eliminating the roof mount unit and the associated issues.

The larger cab allowed the window glass area to be increased by 25% which improves on the already great sight lines. The enlarged door openings and widened entrance steps makes ingress even easier on what is considered to be the best access in the industry.

Split doors are now standard.
Full LED lighting is now standard.
The two-piece split doors allow versatility on the jobsite and can be easily removed without the use of tools. This has now been made standard due to such positive customer feedback. Also standard on new models are larger exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals, full LED work lighting, and full gauge package.

Standard on all M Series is HD Clearview Roller Mast with Sideshift, Powershuttle transmission and limited slip differential. Perkins turbo Diesel is standard, with many other options available, including LPG. Available in capacities from 6000 lbs to 20,000 lbs.

New AG Series now in production.
Building on the very successful M Series is Manitex Liftking’s newest model for 2015 – the AG Series designed specifically for the Agricultural industry. The AG Series incorporates all the features of the standard M Series, but in a smaller foot print. This reduces weight and turning radius, while increases travel speed and performance. All of which are requested features from our agricultural customers.

Available with a Perkins or John Deere Tier IV turbo Diesel and various other options including bin clamps and sod carriages. Available in capacities from 5000 lbs to 8000 lbs.
