Exhibited at Intermat 2006, in Paris, the telehandler offers lift heights from 14 metres to 30 metres. With a fork attachment, the telehandler can lift up to five tonnes. Depending on attachments, the MRT can operate as a handling machine, a lift platform or crane.

The three models, available in load capacities ranging from 3,000lbs to 4,500lbs (1,361kg to 2,041kg), offer hydrostatic steering and Mitsubishi's safety feature, the integrated presence system (IPS). IPS detects whether a driver is correctly seated and, if not, prevents all hydraulic movement. It also stops lowering, lifting, tilting and truck travel.
