France-based Manitou has introduced a line of diesel booms to North America, mainly based on its existing range, including the new articulating ATJ 46
The new Manitou MEWP product line includes two electric models, the AETJ 49 and AETJ 43, and three diesel models, the ATJ 46, ATJ 46+ and Man’Go 33. They were announced at the Rental Show, taking place in New Orleans this week.
New to all markets, not just North America, is the ATJ 46. This machine introduces new features designed to reduce the total cost of ownership, including an automatic start and stop system and 24 hp Kubota engine that does not require after treatment. The machine provides easy access to main components and a self-diagnostic system. It has a platform height of 45 feet 11 inches and offers up-and-over reach of 27feet 3 inches at a height of 24 feet 2 inches. Four-wheel drive is standard, and the machine comes with rough terrain tires, 14 inches of ground clearance and a 500 pound platform capacity.
Mark Hanson, regional vice president of Manitou Group and CEO of Manitou North America, said, “All five new models were engineered to comply with the proposed North American ANSI standards. Significant changes include modifications to the electrical system, a swing door on the basket and new Tier IV engines for the diesel models.”
The Manitou ATJ 46+ is ideal for any high-capacity job, with a large platform that can handle up to 900 pounds without restriction. The platform reaches up to 45 feet 6 inches and has a horizontal outreach of 28 feet 3 inches.
For the rental market specifically, the Man’Go 33 is designed to be compact, lightweight, easy to use and easy to maintain. At 5 feet 10 inches wide and 9,150 pounds, the Man’Go 33 is easy and less costly to transport. Manitou is also bringing electric-powered MEWPs to North America, including the 43 feet working height AETJ 43 and 49ft working height AETJ 49 booms.
