Manitou to Debut Biggest Ever Telehandler at ConExpo

In late December, Manitou, Waco, Texas, reported it was introducing its largest telehandler • the 36,000-pound capacity MHT 10160 • to the North American market at ConExpo. In addition to this machine, the company announces today that it will debut an even bigger telehandler to the worldwide market at the big show • the 46,000-pound capacity MHT 10210.

This unit features a maximum lift height of 31'8” with a capacity of 28,600 pounds at its maximum height. Capacity at its maximum forward reach of 19 feet is 11,000 pounds. Powering the MHT 10210 is a 175-hp Mercedes intercooled Tier 3 turbo diesel engine. Additional features include a hydrostatic transmission, four-wheel drive, and 10 frame leveling.

According to Dominique Himsworth, vice president of sales, marketing and aftermarket support for the group, Manitou was reluctant to announce the introduction of the MHT 10210 because the company was unsure if the machine would be available in time. “We are pleased that the truck was completed ahead of schedule, and that we will be able to launch this truck at ConExpo,” he adds.
