Manitou has launched three new large capacity MHT (Manitou Heavy Telehandler) telehandlers with maximum lift capacities up to 23 T. The three new machines include the 13 T capacity MHT 10130, the 18 T MHT 10180 and the 23 T MHT 10230 and are built at the Manitou Italia Cavazzona Plant at Castelfranco, Emilia. The additions boost the MHT range to six models, augmenting the MHT 790, MHT 1490 and the MHT 14350 launched in 2014. All three new models are powered by a Mercedes 129 kW engine available in either Stage 4 (Tier IV final) with 750 Nm of torque or Stage 3a (Tier III) with 675 Nm. All have hydrostatic transmissions with two forward and reverse speeds. All are available with jib/winch attachments as well as a variety of platforms - including platform with winch. Ancenis-based Manitou specialises in all-terrain or industrial forklifts, aerial work platforms, compact loaders and warehousing equipment. It is part of a multi-brand group that employs 3,300 staff worldwide.
