Manitou to Demo Specialty Telehandlers at ConExpo

Manitou will provide ConExpo-Con/Agg attendees the opportunity to see and experience revolutionary telescopic handling equipment and attachments in the Gold lot at booth #G3978.

The MRT 2150 rotating telescopic handler with 360° continuous rotation will be equipped with an extendible 13’ work platform that can accommodate loads up to 1,320 lbs. (600 kg) and swing 180°. A 660-lb. (300 kg) winch is integrated within the platform. This equipment setup is ideal for industrial maintenance, panel and glass installers, general contractors, and masons.

The MHT 10130 heavy capacity telescopic handler with a maximum lifting capacity of 28,000 lbs. (13 000 kg) will be equipped with a pipe grapple attachment that has 94” (2400 mm) forks. With a maximum lift height of 36’6” (9.62 m), this setup is ideal for oil and gas applications.

Both the MRT Series rotating telescopic handlers and MHT series heavy-capacity telescopic handlers come standard with remote operation that lets the operator control engine functions, boom extension, and attachment operation from outside the cab. The equipment demos will showcase the remote operation and will occur consistently throughout the CONEXPO show at Booth #G3978.

"Manitou welcomes you to discover the enhanced versatility of the telehandler at the 2017 ConExpo-Con/Agg show," said Chris Mathijs, director of sales and marketing, Manitou, for North America. "Manitou will conduct live demos of our rotating and heavy-capacity telescopic handlers and unique attachments that could revolutionize material handling."

Manitou, Gehl and Mustang equipment will also have a static equipment display on 6,000 sq.ft. in the Gold lot, Booth #G4165. The Gehl brand will showcase nine new models in the skid loader, track loader, articulated loader, excavator, and telescopic handler product lines. The Mustang brand will showcase seven new Mustang models in the skid loader, track loader, articulated loader and excavator product lines. The Manitou brand will showcase more than five new Manitou models in the rotating telescopic handler, heavy-duty telescopic handler, and construction telescopic handler product lines.
