Manitou introduces five new telescopic handlers
By Jenny LescohierFebruary 15, 2023
Manitou introduces five new MTA series telescopic handlers that it says hit industry sweet spots for lifting capacity and maximum height.
The new models - MTA 642, MTA 842, MTA 1055, MTA 1242 and the MTA 1255 - are designed to deliver premium performance and operator satisfaction, the company said.
The range starts at the 74-horsepower MTA 642 with 6,000 lbs. capacity lifting up to 42 feet high, and goes up to the 127-horsepower MTA 1255 that lifts 12,000 lbs. up to a maximum lift height of 55 feet.
Two new models — the MTA 842 and the MTA 1055 — feature both a 74 horsepower and 127 horsepower option to give fleet managers the flexibility to add the telehandler that best matches their service preferences (the 74 horsepower models require no diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to meet emissions standards).
Each of the five new models will be announced fully at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023, and will be available at Manitou dealers later in 2023.
