Manitou Adds Telescopic Handler to Product Line

Manitou, West Bend, Wis., has introduced the MLT 625 telescopic handler to its agriculture product line. A low-profile compact telescopic handler, it has a maximum lift height of 19’3” (5867 mm) and a maximum lift capacity of 5,500-pounds (2495 kg). It provides substantial power and reach in a compact machine that is able to gain access into low overhead buildings, garages and barns.

The compact design of the MLT 625 features an overall height of 6’7” (2000 mm) and a width of just under 6 feet (1819 mm). This makes it easy for it to access even the smallest structures, including small storage buildings, greenhouses, and stables. The short turning radius of 10 feet (3190 mm) enables it to maneuver into normally inaccessible spaces for handling hay, feed, seed, and fertilizer; animal care, harvesting work, and miscellaneous chores around the property.

The telescopic handler’s75-hp turbo-charged Kubota diesel engine, coupled with a hydraulic gear pump, results in a flow rate of 24 gallons (90 liters) per minute at a pressure of 3408 psi (235 bars). It offers an ideal power-to-weight ratio and a two-speed hydrostatic transmission that result in less fuel consumption. It is equipped with 18-foot agricultural tires, and has a ground clearance of 15 feet (378mm).

The machine’s hydraulic system provides maximum operating efficiency with a wide variety of attachments.

The cab is ergonomic and comfortable, with panoramic sightlines for increased safety and productivity. The operator compartment is also equipped with a digital display showing all the essential performance information. The insulation of the cab and engine compartment provides excellent soundproofing with low sound levels of 76 dB. The cab includes an intuitive and ergonomic JSM multi-function joystick control that allows the operator to control all drive and hydraulic functions with the right hand, leaving the left hand totally dedicated to steering, providing more precise control and convenience.  An adjustable steering column with both tilt and height adjustability further enhances operator comfort and reduces operator fatigue.
