New Manitou Telehandlers
Manitou Group is releasing two new series of telehandlers into the North American market. Both the MT and MRT Series machines originated in Europe and are targeted at operators who need to work within tight space constraints, Manitou said.
Both series of machines are targeted at construction applications, especially in single-family, apartment and commercial markets, Manitou said. The need to work within space constraints will vary by region, but Manitou believes demand for space-conscious telehanders is a “growing trend” in the construction industry.
The MT Series consists of the 1440, 1840, 1840A and the 1840 H (hydrostatic) telehandlers. Each has a lift capacity of 9000 lb. and is powered by an 854E-E34TA Perkins Tier 4 interim diesel engine rated 102 hp at 2500 rpm.
In the MT 1840 H machine, the 3.4 L engine drives a Bosch Rexroth hydrostatic transmission with an inching pedal designed for additional controllability of ground and engine speed. The hydrostatic transmission is teamed with Dana axles front and rear.
The other MT series machines incorporate Dana’s Powershuttle transmission with a four-speed gearbox as well as Dana axles.
In all four telehandlers, the engine also drives Casappa tandem gear pumps that drive the hydraulic work functions. All models allow the operator to use four-wheel steering, two-wheel steering and crab steering when needed.
