The 35 T capacity MHT-X 14350 is described as a robust rough-terrain, all-purpose vehicle with a focus on handling capabilities, safety and operator comfort. The model features a 7.2 l, 240 kW Mercedes-Benz engine delivering 1,300 Nm to cater for the mining and heavy industrial sectors. It has a 14 m duplex turret. It will be one of several machines on show which were designed and manufactured at Manitou's Mining Competence Centre. The full range includes six models from 3 T to 40 T. AIMEX runs from 1-4 September at Sydney Olympic Park.
