Manitou Introduces Five New Telescopic Handlers

Manitou has debuted five new MTA series telescopic handlers designed for the North American market: the MTA 642, MTA 842, MTA 1055, MTA 1242, and the MTA 1255.

Each of the five new models will be announced fully at the 2023 Conexpo-Con/Agg show this March. The telescopic handlers will be available at Manitou dealers later in 2023.

According to Manitou these new models all hit industry sweet spots for lifting capacity and maximum height. The company also said the new MTA series delivers operator and design characteristics that drive premium performance and operator satisfaction.   

These new models start at the 74 horsepower MTA 642 with 6,000 lbs. capacity lifting up to 42’, and go up to the 127 horsepower MTA 1255 that lifts 12,000 lbs. up to a maximum lift height of 55’.

Two new models — the MTA 842 and the MTA 1055 — feature both a 74 horsepower and 127 horsepower option to give fleet managers the flexibility to add the telehandler that best matches their service preferences (the 74 horsepower models require no diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to meet emissions standards).
