The MAN’GO 12 is about 1 T lighter than competitors, with the machine weighing nearly 4T.
Manitou has released the MAN’GO 12 diesel boom lift to the Australian, New Zealand and Oceania markets.

Released in Europe early this year, the latest addition to the French equipment maker’s aerial work platform range boasts a new design and new concept.

The MAN’GO 12 can lift workers up to 12 m and is suitable for structural work, finishing work, pruning and industrial cleaning. Its large basket can carry two people or 230 kg, and its compact design allows access to restricted areas. With a 1.8 m width, Manitou says the boom lift is 10 cm narrower than its competitors. As the machine’s boom length is 9.9 m, there is no requirement for the operator to be licensed for elevated work platform operations. According to Manitou, the MAN’GO 12 is about 1 T lighter than competitors, with the machine weighing nearly 4T.

"We really wanted to respond to a requirement with a dedicated technical solution," says Samuel Viaud, product manager of access platforms. "Each function has been completely redesigned … to offer an appropriate alternative."

Headquartered in Ancenis, France, the Manitou Group, which specialises in all-terrain materials handling equipment, had a turnover of EUR1.25 billion (AUD2.0 billion) in 2014. It operates in 140 countries and employs 3,300 staff.
