Manitou has unofficially launched a new truck-mounted forklift for the Australian market. The TMT 2520 SR XT was manufactured in France and exported to Australia two months ago. Manitou Australia's commercial manager Stuart Walker said it suited the Australian environment. "The terrain in Western Australia is very sandy. To accommodate this, the new TMT has a higher torque wheel motion and wheel motors on each wheel," Walker said. The TMT 2520 SR XT has not been officially launched in Australia but is being distributed with Manitou's December 2005 release of the Manitransit truck-mounted forklift range that includes the TMT 2520 SR rough-terrain telescopic truck-mounted forklift. NTP Forklifts, LiftRite (Western Australia), Western Diesel (Northern Territory) and Waverly Forklifts (New South Wales) are official distributors of the TMT range. NTP Forklifts will showcase the TMT range in Sydney at the National Truck Show, on September 7-10, 2006.
