New Manitou telehandler offers made

Published: May 30th, 2013

Manitou’s telehandler range just got better with the immediate release of the Manitou MLT 840-137, a replacement for the MLT 741-120. This upgrade is significant and provides a fresh new look and lots of improvements that add up to something special.

Distributed by Manitou Agriculture, a business unit of AB Equipment, the new Manitou MLT 840-137 rough terrain telehandler has impressive performance capabilities that ideally suit New Zealand farm conditions. For instance the MLT 840’S maximum capacity allows you to move up to 4000kg, and, better still, to tip up to 3 tonnes into a 4.5 metre high trailer. The boom of the Manitou MLT 840 lets you carry loads up to 7.55 metres in height with 80cm of offset. They say that performance equals agility and this new Manitou has it all, with a turning radius of 3.98 metres that sets new standards in agricultural telehandler execution.

The Manitou MLT 840-137 is equipped with a 137HP John Deere 4.5 litre engine and a 180 litre per minute variable flow hydraulic pump. It also features a cooling system that controls the fan speed automatically according to the engine temperature, which leads to significant fuel savings and a superior working environment.

The MLT 840 also includes Manitou’s exclusive JSM hydraulic controls that speeds up the hydraulic operation by diverting oil to all functions simultaneously to provide a quicker and more responsive hydraulic operation. The JSM allows the operator to move the machine forward or in reverse whilst being able to undertake multiple tasks in unison and still maintain a safe and efficient process.

For the operator, a feature of the Manitou MLT rough terrain telehandler is the new 5-speed M-Shift gearbox that is designed for smooth gear changing in all situations. The power shift automatic transmission is fitted as standard.

When it comes to cab comfort there have been a number of improvements. Manitou offers a machine that not only looks good both internally and externally, but is also intended for maximum operator well-being. The driving area has been ergonomically designed to increase productivity and comes with a pneumatic cloth seat, air conditioning, rear view mirror and a CD/ MP3 player. Other features include an easy-connect hydraulic system, a radiator auto-cleaning system, a manual accelerator, an interactive digital dashboard and a whole lot more.

The Manitou 840 is one of the safest telehandlers around. It has excellent stability and is further enhanced by a presence selector located in the seat.
A large window area, lateral engine, low boom pivot as well as the high seating position give 360 degrees visibility, guaranteeing your own safety and everyone around you.

The Manitou MLT 840-137 rough terrain telehandler is big on performance and is ideal for most handling tasks including animal feed, harvesting work and bulk loading and unloading.
