Manitou Expands Industrial Forklift Line for North America
West Bend, Wis. (November 8, 2019) – Three new propane-powered industrial forklift models from Manitou deliver heftier lift capacities for a diverse range of applications. The Manitou MI 40G, MI 50G and MI 70G provide lift capacities that range from 8,000 to 15,400 pounds (3650-7000 kg) and are equipped with a 99 hp engine, the highest horsepower offered in the Manitou MI industrial forklift series.
“With these new machines, Manitou now has an aggressive offering of 13 MI industrial forklift models for North America, with six of those being propane,” said Jeff Weido, senior director of product management and marketing, Manitou Group. “The new MI 40G, MI 50G and MI 70G are robust, reliable forklifts that deliver exceptional performance in heavy duty applications within manufacturing, factories, lumber, paper mills, general warehousing and distribution centers.”
The simple design of a Manitou MI forklift keeps the machine highly efficient with a limited number of electrical components and easy access for maintenance. The new models are equipped with the standard safety features seen across the MI offering, including a panoramic rear view mirror, optimized hose routing in the mast and a honeycomb roof for added visibility and protection. In addition, the models have working lights on the cab, front and rear headlights with blinkers and a backup alarm. Operators can also safely enter the cab with a low, wide anti-slip step on each side of the forklift.
Manitou has over 60 years of proven success in the forklift industry and focuses on producing products designed around user expectations for simplicity, comfort, reliability and efficiency. For more information on the Manitou MI 40G, 50G and 70G Industrial Forklifts, visit manitou.com.
