New telehandlers

24 April 2008

The biggest big splash at Intermat in telehandlers is from Manitou. Visitors can see the new MRT 3050, which the company claims is the tallest rotating telescopic platform. The machine offers all-terrain performance, lift heights to 30 m, load carrying capacity (with forks) of 5 t, and remote control. Attachments provide lift platform or crane capabilities, and a hanging 3D platform attachment increases working height to 40 m.

Also new is the three-model MT 14 telescopic handler range, which replaces the Maniscopic MT 13 range at Intermat. All models have lift heights of 13.6 m, extend pallets up to 9.5 m, and allow one-hand control of all movements.

Another new line comes from Kramer, part of the Neusen Kramer group in Germany. Its partnership with Claas has produced the first two telehandler models, with 6 and 7 m lift heights, and the range will eventually reach 17 m.

JLG will show a special compact version of its 266 telehandler model, called the Lo-Pro 266. This will be under 2 m high, compared to the 2.2 m height of the standard model.

Watch out also for telehandlers from JCB, Merlo, Dieci and others.
