Manitou Adds The New MLT 420 Compact Telescopic Loader to its Extensive North American Offering

West Bend, Wis. (Sept. 10th, 2020) – Manitou Group is excited to introduce the NEW Manitou MLT 420 AG Telescopic Loader to our extensive MLT product line-up for North America. The MLT 420 is the most compact Manitou telescopic loader, in the product line, and can navigate in confined spaces and offers all the advantages of a loader, telehandler and industrial forklift combined.

The super-compact dimensions, just 58" wide and 79" high, makes it easy to work in confined spaces. But don't let it's small size fool you. This compact unit has a maximum lift capacity of 4,400 lbs. and a maximum lift height of 14 feet 4 inches.

Although compact, the Manitou MLT 420 has a full size operators cab for ultimate comfort and a full 360 degree visibility. The machine is easy to operate, and a two-speed hydrostatic transmission with directional and gear change on the JSM® (Joystick, Switch and Move) adds flexibility and precision. The JSM joysticks allows the operator to control all hydraulic functions with one hand, so the other hand can remain on the steering wheel at all times for added safety. The MLT 420 is also equipped with a standard auto reversing fan which makes it ideal to work in dusty environments. A wide selection of attachments are available for maximum versatility and we make it quick and easy to change your hydraulic attachments with our Easy Connect System.

The Manitou MLT 420 Compact Telescopic Loader is currently in production and orders are now beings accepted. If you have any questions, please contact your Regional Sales Manager or member of our sales support team.

These machines are fully supported and available at Manitou dealerships across the United States and Canada. For more information on the new Manitou MLT 420 Telescopic Loader, visit
