Specialised machinery and equipment
Manitou is the mastermind behind the world’s largest telehandler – the MHT-X 14350. Developed to meet industry needs, this record-breaking telehandler, available on order from all Manitou telehandler dealers, is a versatile, reliable and robust rough terrain, all-purpose vehicle. It delivers unparalleled handling capabilities with increased safety and ergonomic operator comfort. It has a maximum load capacity of 35 000 kg and a maximum lift height of 13.60 m.
As safety demands in the mining industry increased, it became necessary to engineer equipment to meet and exceed these demands. Some examples of Manitou’s commitment to providing the highest levels of safety was the development of a range of flameproof equipment. Selected telehandlers and skid steer loaders are now equipped with numerous fire resistant and fire retardant innovations. These protect, insulate and filter exposed sensitive, reactive motor components. Manitou fireproof equipment includes the MT-X625 and MLT-X 732 telehandlers and the Gehl 4240E Skid Steer Loader. Some of this equipment was launched just prior to Electra Mining 2014, which was used as a platform to showcase their unique abilities.
In addition to specialised machines, Manitou is renowned supplier of attachments tailored for various applications. In fact, we developed specialised attachments for use in the mining industry, although many of them are also ideal for other industries. Our specialised mining attachments include handlers for conveyor belts; struts and cylinders; tyres; and wheel motors, as well as Manitou Scalers, jibs, safety cages and roof bolters.
