Manitou Australia has launched a new farm loader in its tailored agricultural range of telescopic handlers.
Having pioneered the telescopic handler concept in Australia in the mid-90s, Manitou has since been providing on-farm handling solutions to farmers across Australia and New Zealand.
The new Manitou farm loader, MLT-X627 is a telescopic handler offering key benefits of safety, productivity and cost efficiency, especially when compared to tractor front end loader solutions.
Manitou Australia Managing Director Stuart Walker explains that the addition of the Manitou MLT-X627 to the range of agriculture solutions completes their offer for on-farm handling applications of all sizes.
Designed as an alternative to tractor front end loaders in response to customer demand, the new Manitou farm loader offers a cost-effective solution to farmers seeking greater productivity and efficiency in their materials handling requirements.
The Manitou MLT-X627 farm loader offers a lift capacity of 2700kg, a lift height of nearly 6 metres, and compatibility with a wide range of Manitou attachments for a range of applications. When fitted with a general purpose Ag bucket the MLT-X627 delivers 50% greater productivity than a tractor front end loader.
In addition to offering one of the widest ranges of telescopic handlers in Oceania, Manitou Australia relies on the expertise of its network of dealers to support its rural customers.
Key features of Manitou MLT-X627 farm loaders include assured performance, compact rear engine design for visibility; compliance with high safety standards; 2700kg lift capacity, 5.5m lift height; fast hydraulics and breakout force; spacious air-conditioned cab; ergonomic and intuitive control layout; JSM hydraulic control for optimum comfort and precision; smooth and accurate movements; and compatibility with multiple attachments.
