Key features:

Engine:  Tier IV-certified, 74 hp Perkins diesel turbo engine

Transmission:  Manitou's Semi-Industrial line features an electro-hydraulic shifting hydrostatic transmission providing one speed for forward, one for reverse with travel speeds up to 13.7 mph.

Smooth travel on uneven ground:
Manitou's Semi-industrial forklifts combine the capabilities of a traditional forklift, with the ability to travel and handle material outdoors.  This stable lift truck has extra ground clearance, increased traction and a smooth hydro-static transmission, allowing it to perform pin-point load accuracy and smooth travel on uneven ground. The large diameter of the front wheels provides increased ground clearance and excellent weight distribution to handle longer loads or heavier loads in one trip. The increased ground clearance and the oscillating rear axle ensure the forklift is stable in adverse conditions, traveling over curbs and uneven terrain. A hydraulic shock absorber is standard providing safer travel on uneven ground.  

Masts & Attachments:
Masts are available in 2-stage or 3-stage designs.  The 2-stage mast provides maximum visibility,while the 3-stage provides free lift. Attachment options include lumber forks, brick and block forks, construction bucket, light material bucket, sideshift, hydraulic quickfit and TI telehandler interface (on 2-stage mast only).  The TI tilting carriage allows for quick fitting of attachments and interchanging attachments while the operator can remain seated in the cab.  

Cab / Operator's Compartment & Controls:

Semi-enclosed cab without doors is on the base unit.  A fully enclosed cab is available withoptional heat and /or air conditioning.  The cab tilts forward with a press of a button for full access to the entire engine compartment for routine service checks. The cab has been designed for operator protection, satisfying ROPS/FOPS requirements for roll over protection and falling object protection. Standard single joystick control, or optional JSM joystick.

Multiple tire options are available including low pressure tires to absorb shocks when driving over rough conditions.  Chains can be fitted when full traction is needed.
