Manitou Expands Aerial Work Platform Portfolio in Europe with New Scissor Lift Range

Manitou Group has launched a new range of scissor lifts. In doing so, the company aims to provide customers with a complete range of self-propelled aerial work platforms.

With two models, the SE 0808 and SE 1008, with working heights of 26’ 2” and 32’ 8”, respectively, this range will be extended to include a 39’ 3” model (SE 1212) later in the year.

These models will be delivered throughout Europe from April onwards via Manitou’s 350-strong dealer network, which will also support the after-sales service to provide support to the company’s customers.

The range will evolve by 2025, with distribution extending beyond Europe.

“All three models benefit from Manitou’s renowned quality standards. We have big ambitions in the scissor market, where demand is very strong. As a reminder, industrial “scissor” models account for nearly 60% of the global aerial work platform market,” said Samuel Viaud, product manager for Manitou Group’s scissor lift range.

The company says the new scissor lifts were designed with high-quality components to help customers achieve low cost of ownership.

Two highly efficient AC motors, combined with a lighter weight, ensure greater machine autonomy. According to Manitou, they are maintenance-free for their entire service life, greatly reducing servicing costs.

These models are designed to operate on flat, stabilized ground, both indoors and outdoors.

The scissor lifts meet a wide range of needs: industrial maintenance and finishing work (electrical, plumbing, installation of fire protection systems, etc.)

Manitou says this range was created to make it easy for the operator to get to grips with, thanks to a streamlined, intuitive control panel. A full-height gate and two handles attached to the machine ensure safe ascent and descent.

The operator also benefits from an extendable sliding floor and an extra 35” of space, giving a total basket length of 8’ 3”. To facilitate communication between the machine and the operator or technician, this connected range features integrated diagnostics and a color screen that provides information on safety, battery consumption and maintenance.

These machines are equipped with side sheaths that allow them to be moved quickly, facilitating safe loading and unloading.
