NTP to showcase Manitou and TCM products at Queensland expo
Leading national materials handling company, NTP Forklifts Australia, is to showcase its extensive range of rough terrain and industrial forklifts, as well as telescopic handlers, at the Queensland Truck and Machinery Show in Brisbane in May.
While the company – with offices in Brisbane, Townsville, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney and affiliates in Perth, Hobart and Darwin – serves as the national distributor for five major brands, its expo efforts will focus on the Manitou family of rough terrain forklifts and telescopic handlers and the TCM collection of industrial forklifts.
France-based Manitou is recognised as a world leader in rough terrain materials handling, having led the way with numerous pioneering products. These include the innovative and compact "go anywhere" telescopic handler, the Twisco, which delivers outstanding manoeuvrability and remarkable performance capabilities.
The Manitou Twisco (a contraction of "twist" for its movement action and telescopic) has already made its mark across a diverse range of industries, among them the building and construction, warehousing and agriculture and nursery sectors.
Although extremely compact with a height of just 1,9 metres and a width of 1,66 metres, the Manitou Twisco is capable of lifting a pallet of breeze blocks or cement weighing up to 1500 kilograms almost four metres into the air.
Its compactness also means it can be easily transported to just about anywhere using no more than a trailer or light commercial vehicle.
Furthermore, its manoeuvrability – its three wheels contribute to an impressive turning radius of just 2,22 metres – enables it to move easily between interior and exterior obstacles – be they the confined inside space of a new building on a construction site, the narrow aisles in a warehouse, or the tight rows between crops in the field.
Products from the Japan-based TCM Corporation include a full range of forklift trucks for industrial applications and wheel and other loaders ideally suited to the construction industry.
