Manitou MHT 860 L Turbo LSU
By Daphne Haneman

Manitou Australia has added to its distribution network with the appointment of National Equipment as a full line dealer for New South Wales.

Manitou commercial manager Stuart Walker said no other changes had been made to the network of industrial and agricultural Dealers.  

He said Manitou’s industrial dealers were LiftRite Hire & Sales (Western Australia), Western Diesel (Northern Territory), NTP Forklifts Australia (Queensland, NSW, Victoria and South Australia), and National Equipment (NSW).

National Equipment specialises in rough terrain materials handling equipment and will distribute the Manitou brand, including Manitou’s new telescopic handler, the MHT 860 L Turbo LSU.

Walker said the appointment was demand driven.

"Due to growing customer demand and Manitou’s increased product range it has been necessary for Manitou Australia to expand our dealer network in NSW," he said.

National Equipment technical operations manager Steve McLintock said he was looking forward to the new affiliation with Manitou.

"We are pretty excited to be developing a relationship with a world-class dealership and have been amazed with the fantastic feedback regarding the range," he said.

The MHT 860 L Turbo LSU was manufactured at Manitou’s Italian factory and arrived in Australia last week. It will be unveiled at this week’s Sydney International Mining & Engineering Exhibition (SIMEX).

A Manitou statement said the MHT 860 L Turbo LSU’s (load sensing ultra) technology was unique.

"Three simultaneous proportional movements can be carried out: tipping while raising the boom and extending the telescope, tipping and opening the grab," it said.

The MHT 860 L Turbo LSU has a lifting capacity of 6,000kg, a Perkins engine and three separate radiators preventing overheating in intense operating cycles.
