MANITOU: Truck Mounted Forklifts

Model: TMT 55

The TMT series is a revolutionary truck with a telescopic boom design that allows this truck to reach into buildings, over flatbed trucks, and on to trailers. It has a lift capacity of 5500 lb and the long boom option reaches up to 58 inches (1473 mm) in front of the front wheel for one-side reach capability when loading flatbed trailers. The TMT series contains a compact design which makes it ideal for a truck mounted forklift. It has an overhang of only 55 inches (1397 mm) when mounted and a low overall weight. This means that the unit will not add excessively to the hauler’s payload or hinder the driver’s maneuverability while transporting the unit. The TMT 55 is made to endure rough terrain. The rear pivot is designed to move farther back to create a larger triangle to help increase stability when being operated. The engine compartment is easily accessible, while all hoses and moving parts are thoroughly protected. The TMT 55 presents an operator’s compartment whose comfort and 360 degrees of visibility is second to none. The Boom control joystick on this truck has integrated reversing shift functionality which will allow the operator to have one had on the joystick and one hand on the steering wheel at all times. The TMT 55 also possesses a powerful high-torque, 49 hp (37 kW) Kubota Tier III certified diesel engine. This particular engine delivers the low-end torque needed to handle loads in rough-terrain conditions. More information on this telescopic boom truck is provided below.
