Manitou has introduced the MHT-X 790 and MHT-X 1490 telehandlers to the Australian and New Zealand markets.

Able to lift up to 9 T and with maximum lifting heights of 7 and 14 m respectively, the trucks can handle heavy and bulky loads in all terrain conditions.

The MHT-X 790 has a 6 T capacity at maximum lift height, a 4.88 m turning radius and a maximum travel speed of 30 km/h. Equipped with hydrostatic transmission, four-wheel drive and a ground clearance of 41 cm, Manitou says the telehandler excels on uneven ground.

The MHT-X 1490 has been designed specifically for mining, civil works and industrial site maintenance operations. It also has a hydrostatic transmission and a 6 T capacity at maximum lift height. Its turning radius is 5.34 m and its maximum travel speed is 31 km/h.

The French manufacturer says the machines are fully compliant with the Australian and New Zealand standards and have been manufactured to ensure "maximum safety and reliability in the southern hemisphere’s harshest environments".
