New Manitou RT forklifts deliver increased efficiency in a compact size
Manitou Group, has launched the next generation of compact rough terrain forklifts with the new MC 25-4 and MC 30-4 models. These two models create a bridge between the indoor industrial style (ME/MI) and the true rough terrain forklifts (M series) in both size and performance.
These versatile forklifts can be used for handling pallets in both indoor and outdoor applications. The Manitou Compact (MC) forklift offers a ground clearance from 11.8in (300mm), travelling speed of 15mph (25km/h); a cost of ownership of $14.22/hour; low fuel consumption: low noise of 79dBand high visibility when handling loads at height.
Brian Rabe, North American product marketing and training manager at the Manitou Group says, “Replacing the successful MH25-4T model in the Manitou range, the all new MC 25-4 brings performance, visibility and operator comfort to a new level. The innovative panoramic glass roof and redesigned mast offering improves visibility. Standard selectable 4wd/2wd and new chassis improve performance. Reduced total cost of ownership and larger operator station are all key improvements rooted in Manitou’s DNA.”
Available with two motors on front wheels or four on front and rear wheels, the MC 25-4 and MC 30-4 have the ability to switch from 4-wheel drive to 2-wheel drive on the dashboard for any application. Front and rear wheel mounted drive motors put the power to the ground in 4WD mode and in 2WD mode give users the speed to transport material long distances.
Fuel consumption has been reduced by 12%, compared to the MH 25 and preventative maintenance has been reduced by 20%, compared to the MH 25.
