Manitou to debut compact telehandler
By Lindsey Anderson21 January 2019
Manitou North America is debuting a super-compact Gehl RS4-14 telehandler at World of Concrete this week. The machine is just under 60 inches wide and 75 inches tall and is the most compact model in the Gehl lineup. It boasts a maximum lift capacity of 4,400 pounds, lift height of 14 feet, 3 inches and outreach of 9 feet. The Gehl RS4-14 telescopic handler has four-wheel drive, three steering modes and a 10-foot, 1-inch turning radius, so it can work on uneven terrain and in confined spaces.
Although compact, the Gehl RS4-14 telescopic handler has a full size operators cab for ultimate comfort, the company said. ”The machine is easy to operate, and the two-speed hydrostatic transmission with gear change on the JSM (Joystick Switch and Move) provides flexibility and precision. The JSM joysticks allows the operator to control all hydraulic and directional functions with one hand, so the other hand can remain on the steering wheel at all times for added safety. A wide selection of attachments are available for maximum versatility and customers have the option to select the universal skid attach system or Manitou quick attach system,” the company added.
World of Concrete runs Jan. 22-25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. For more information, see the Jan/Feb issue of Access, Lift & Handlers.
