Leading equipment hire firm Coates Hire has taken delivery of 10 new Manitou 160ATJ+ elevating work platforms. The 160ATJ+ is the only 45 ft. (13.7 m) elevating work platform on the Australian market with a capacity of 400 kg, some 75% higher than a standard 45 ft. elevating work platform. Coates Hire has placed an order for a further 31 high-capacity Manitou access platforms to be delivered in 2019 on top of the 10 units just delivered, which will bring their total Manitou access fleet to over 80 units in Australia. "There's a great market acceptance here in Australia (of Manitou equipment) as being rough and ready and pretty robust. Our customers like the units and for us, they're a good fix. So, for us, it's been a really good successful relationship or partnership that we want to see continue in Australia," says Coates category manager Daniel Goodfellow.
