WEST BEND, WISCONSIN — Manitou, the world leader in rough terrain material handling equipment, is pleased to present the MT Series Premiere telescopic handlers to the North American market. Interim Tier IV-certified models MT1440, MT 1840, MT 1840 A and MT 1840 H make up the highly anticipated product line.

Impressive rated lift capacities of 9,000 lbs. (4082 kg) on all models allow operators to lift, transport and place large loads with ease. Lift heights of 44'4" (13.53 m) on the MT 1440 and 57'7"(17.55 m) on the MT 1840, MT 1840 A and MT 1840 H make aerial handling and material placement easy. Frame leveling and front stabilizers come standard on all models. The stabilizers increase lift capacity on the MT 1840 from 4,000 lbs. (1814 kg) to 5,000 lbs. (2268 kg) at maximum lift height and from 800 lbs. (363 kg) to 1,900 lbs. (862 kg) at maximum forward reach.

The MT 1840 A provides work platform capability. The MT 1840 A comes standard with a Load Moment Indicator (LMI) that provides forward stability information to the operator to help prevent tipping. Electrical sensors and power up to the boom tip integrate with sensors on the work platform to limit the possibility of overloading the platform. The MT 1840 A also comes standard with a lockout system that increases the area of stability for the machine equipped with a work platform.

Equipped with a 102 hp (75 kW) Perkins Interim Tier IV-certified diesel engine that delivers 310 ft.-lbs. (420 Nm) of torque, the MT Series Premiere telescopic handlers are prepared to tackle virtually any job. The MT 1440, MT 1840 and MT 1840 A are equipped with a Powershuttle transmission with a 4-speed gearbox. The MT 1840 H comes equipped with a hydrostatic transmission with an inching pedal for additional controllability of ground and engine speed. All models allow the operator to use 4-wheel steering, 2-wheel steering and crab steering when needed.

The MT Series Premiere telescopic handlers offer full size performance in a compact package. With an overall height of 8'1" (2.46 m) and overall width of 7'9" (2.36 m) on the MT 1440, these maneuverable machines come ready to work on even the most cramped jobsites.

The view from the spacious ROPS/FOPS canopy is a full 360 degrees due to the low mounted telescopic boom. An enclosed cab comes standard with a door, air conditioning and a heater/defroster for use in areas where operators need protection from the weather. Adjustable seat and steering wheel come standard on all models for superior comfort and ergonomics. The standard Joystick Switch & Move (JSM) joystick provides machine boom control, attachment function control, and drive selection in one control. Boom lights, work lights and road lights are standard equipment.

The MT Series Premiere telescopic handlers feature a wide opening hood that provides full access to the engine, gauges and filters, reducing maintenance time and improving service access. Standard periodic maintenance and diagnosis display on the multifunction screen allows an operator to easily monitor machine maintenance.

Hydraulic flow of 45 gpm (170 L/min) provides excellent hydraulic performance for a wide variety of attachments. Attachments include truss booms, jib booms, buckets and multiple types of platforms (only available on MT 1840 A) and forks. The hydraulic hoses are routed inside the boom, protecting them from jobsite hazards.

The Manitou MT Series Premiere telescopic handlers are available in North America. These machines are tailored for use in housing, general construction, building material supply, agriculture, rental, forestry, and oil and gas industries. A high lift height and large load capacity allow the MT Series Premiere telescopic handlers to perform a variety of material handling applications.

"The MT Series Premiere Telescopic Handlers provide a high end, premiere telescopic handler for our Manitou construction and rental customers," said Steve Kiskunas, Manitou Americas Telescopic Handler Product Manager. "The MT Series Premiere telescopic handlers provide excellent comfort for the operator while delivering exceptional rough terrain material handling performance. And with four models, there is a configuration for any work application."
