Manitou Adds Attachment Recognition System to Rotative Telescopic Trucks | Construction News

The attachment recognition system, E-Reco is now standard on Manitou's latest rotative telescopic trucks, the MRT Easy and the MRT Privilege Plus. The system detects the attachment at the head of the boom, analyzes its data, and proposes the corresponding working configuration; it also features RFID radio identification technology that enables it to recover and record data remotely.

"Simple and intuitive, it lets all MRT users work easily while making best use of the machine's potential. The automatic calculation of the load chart, adapted to the attachment in place, safely optimizes the use of the rotative telescopic truck", says Olivier Vasseur, product line manager attachments.

The ranges of attachments that are not equipped with the attachment-recognition system can benefit from this technology simply by adapting RFID kits.
