By Lindsey Anderson23 July 2013
Manitou has debuted the MT 5519 telescopic handler now equipped with a Tier IV engine. The Tier IV certified MT 5519 is available for North American markets.
The model MT 5519 is powered by a 69 hp (51.5 kW) water-cooled Yanmar tier IV certified diesel engine. A two-speed hydrostatic transmission, with inching valve, three selectable steering modes, and a powerful hydraulic system are all standard on the MT 5519.
The MT 5519 telescopic handler features a 6-foot, 4-inch (1.93m) frame height and turning radius of 11 feet (3.35m). The low-profile boom reaches to a height of 19-feet, 1-inch (5.8m) and features the same welded box-section design that is on the larger MT Series telescopic handlers.
The MT 5519 telescopic handler was designed to meet the growing needs of contractors, builders and rental companies for a 5,500-pound (2495 kg) lift capacity machine.
Internal wet disc service brakes are standard equipment, along with a SAHR (Spring-Applied, Hydraulic-Release) parking brake, which is
automatically applied when the engine is shut-off, or manually by pressing a rocker switch.
The unit has a 360-degree view and an enclosed cab is optional with front and top windows, a door and a heater/defroster for use in areas where operators need protection from the weather. Air conditioning can also be added.
Two direct mechanical joystick controls for boom and fork tilt functions are standard. A deluxe suspension seat is optional. A work light package can be added.
