Manitou releases worlds largest telescopic handler
Since inventing the first Rough Terrain forklift in 1958, Manitou has been delivering powerful solutions to the logistic and materials handling problems of the mining industry and is now the world's leading supplier of such solutions to the resources sector.
Today, Manitou is continuing its tradition of leading through innovation by releasing the world's largest telescopic handler, the MHT 10225. With a lifting capacity of 22,500kg and 10 meter lifting height Manitou is taking the market to the next level.
This new model is part of the MHT range which offers enhanced versatility and safety compared with cranes and forklifts. The ability to handle oversize loads as a forklift, instead of having to lift as a suspended load means less stability concerns than a crane, and when compared with a forklift the load management system and pre programmed loads charts for each attachment ensure that lifts are carried out in complete safety.
When it comes to versatility the MHT range can handle freely suspended loads either with a single hook system or it can be offered with a fully integrated winch system. Other attachments offered include work platforms up to 1000kg all fully compliant with AS1418.10.
Other mining specific attachments include tyre handlers for all size tyres, hub and strut handler, hydraulic cylinder handler, suspension strut handler etc.
MANITOU Australia Managing Director Stuart Walker said,"Designed to operate on very rough terrain, the MHT range can handle very heavy and bulky loads. The machine / accessories torque is key for applications requesting both versatility and capacity. Far from being ‘just another loader' the MHT offers maneuverability, precision and versatility for a true operating performance."
