Big rough-terrain model from Manitou

07 March 2008

Manitou will launch into the US its 16 t capacity, 10 m lift height MHT 10160 telescopic handler at Conexpo in Las Vegas this March. The French company said the machine, manufactured in Italy, is the largest rough-terrain telehandler on the market.

Capacity at its maximum forward reach of 5,5 m is 4,2 t.

A 131 kW Tier III Mercedes turbo diesel powers the machine through a two-speed hydrostatic transmission. It features a load sensing hydraulic system, frame levelling, three steering modes, and a fully-enclosed cab with heater and defroster.
