Forklifts South Africa designed for Africa

As the forerunners in forklift design, and to ensure that forklifts from South Africa are up to Africa’s challenges, Manitou engineered and built the world’s first rough terrain forklift.  As the engineer of the world’s first all-terrain forklift, it was a natural progression that the ‘go-anywhere’ rough terrain forklift, ideal for handling weights of up to 7 000 kg to 6 m heights, was developed.

Ideal for heavy-duty material handling in tough environments, the rough terrain forklift has superior stability and traction, hydrostatic transmission, advanced user comfort and durable, low maintenance hydraulics.

Manitou also supplies highly mobile and productive truck mounted forklifts, which include masted designs. They can be mounted and dismounted in under 60 seconds, have a compact and ergonomic design, high-accuracy manoeuvrability and 360° panoramic field of vision. All Manitou branches also stock and distribute ranges of conventional and industrial electric forklifts, and electric & diesel forklift trucks.
