Com­fort, re­li­a­bil­ity, ef­fi­ciency ... and big ca­pac­ity, too!

Australasian Timber - - MATERIALS HANDLING -

EARLY THIS year the Man­i­tou Group an­nounced the ex­pan­sion of its in­dus­trial fork­lift range with the in­tro­duc­tion of eight new mod­els. These big ca­pac­ity mod­els are now avail­able to the Aus­tralian mar­ket af­ter suc­cess­ful re­lease in Europe in May 2015. These new mod­els come from 5T to 10T for diesel-pow­ered trucks, to 5T to 7T for gas-pow­ered ones.

These have been de­signed around users’ needs for sim­plic­ity, com­fort, re­li­a­bil­ity and ef­fi­ciency, all at the low­est op­er­at­ing cost, in line with MI guide­lines since the launch of the con­cept.

The new mod­els ben­e­fit from the spe­cial Man­i­tou de­sign ap­plied to MI trucks, which built the rep­u­ta­tion of Man­i­toU prod­ucts. This de­sign al­lows a roomy and re­fined op­er­a­tor’s com­part­ment for a pleas­ant and safe work­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Its f lu­id­ity guar­an­tees bet­ter han­dling and vis­i­bil­ity.

Ac­cess to the cab has been im­proved through many ad­just­ments: han­dle to step up eas­ily to the com­part­ment, non-slip steps on both sides, tilt­ing cylin­ders un­der the f loor to in­crease space. The vis­i­bil­ity has been in­creased to as­sure an op­ti­mum safety with a wide mast open­ing, an open-work roof and pro­filed rear pil­lars for re­vers­ing.

Wide space in the com­part­ment and stan­dard equip­ment such as con­toured seat with seat­belt, wide f loor with molded f loor mat and panoramic rear-view mir­ror, of­fer an ex­cel­lent work­ing space for the op­er­a­tor.

The new mod­els in­te­grate Cum­mins QSB 3.3L stage 3A (or 3B ac­cord­ing to the re­gions) for diesel ver­sion and PSI 4.3L for gas-pow­ered ver­sion, which means re­li­able engines, ref­er­ences in their cat­e­gory for high per­for­mance.

The MIs are also equipped with Pow­er­shift trans­mis­sion for op­ti­mal re­li­a­bil­ity. The stan­dard inch­ing func­tion guar­an­tees a jerk-free ap­proach, op­ti­mizes duty cy­cle times and in­cludes an end-of-stroke brak­ing func­tion.
