Flameproof telehandlers – ideal for underground mining applications!

The flameproof wet system of the Manitou MT-X 625 and MT-X 732 have a fully programmable engine control system. In its standard configuration, it monitors the engine temperature, hydraulic pressure, oil pressure, fuel level, battery voltage as well as driver training and information.

The system can be customised to specifications for most control aspects from customised start-up screens to password access control. A fail-safe braking system has been incorporated to prevent runaway and vehicle motion in the event the operator is away from the telehandler.
