The French company Manitou turned the world of materials handling on its head in 1958 when its founder, Marcel Braud, had the idea to turn around a tractor and add hydraulic steering and a lifting mast. The result was the first ever rough-terrain forklift and it proved to be the foundation of the company’s success. If you look at that first machine, you can immediately see the simplicity and genius of the idea.

It is, indeed, simply a tractor, with the operator sitting on the hood and facing the rear, where the mast and forks have been added. This configuration puts almost the entire weight of the tractor, engine and all, behind the driver and provides a natural counterbalance to the weights being lifted. What were the large rear wheels of the tractor now become the stabilising front wheels of the forklift.

Sticking to their knitting

Unlike other companies, Manitou has remained true to these original founding ideas instead of branching out into all sorts of other areas. Its goal is to be “the material-handling reference” and this admirable focus is evident in the quality of its machines. Today, Manitou’s materials-handling product range for agriculture is divided into masted forklift trucks and telehandlers.

Manitou forklift trucks

The straight-masted, or vertical, Manitou forklift is a good choice for those situations requiring manoeuvrability and utmost stability. The company has pioneered this design and their expertise is evident in the capabilities of the trucks. The M Series of masted forklifts have been designed from the outset to be true rough-terrain forklifts. The company has added simple maintenance and operator comfort to robust performance to create a family of machines suitable for a wide range of applications. Manitou also makes a semi-industrial range of masted forklifts. These are smaller and are tailored for applications that require manoeuvrability in tighter spaces, great handling, lots of traction and good comfort.

Manitou telehandler range

Manitou’s range of telehandlers is truly extensive. There are no fewer than 12 different models, and therefore there is a great chance of finding exactly the right machine for your application. The family runs from the MLT 625 all the way up to the MLT 845, with lift heights ranging from under six metres to more than 14 metres and lift capacities exceeding 4.5 tonnes.

All machines are designed as true agricultural workhorses, with specialist tyres, excellent ground clearance and lots of traction to ensure efficient working even on the most uneven of ground. A raft of attachments allows the accurate and safe handling of all sorts of materials around the farm. The cabs are spacious and ergonomically designed, with Manitou’s trademark JSM controls allowing single-hand operation of the boom and attachments, allowing you to keep a hand on the steering wheel at all times.

Safety first

Safety is, of course, a major feature. There is an aggravating movement detector, which interrupts operations to prevent any operator inputs that would endanger the stability of the machine. There is also a driver-presence detector, which prevents movements unless an operator is seated in the telehandler. ROPS and FOPS protection is standard and a lateral engine, low boom pivot and high seat give excellent visibility of the entire working environment.
