Manitou Has Plenty To Shout


There was no questioning

Manitou commitment to

the North American market as they unveil

new machines at the World of Concrete.

Manitou MHT 1490 Heavy

Capacity Telescopic Handler

The new MHT 1490 heavy capacity telescopic handler

has been designed specifically for the North American

market as a telescopic handler able pick and carry up to

20,000 lbs. (9072 kg) capacity with a low boom mount

providing 360° operational visibility.

The latest model brings full-sized, heavy capacity

lifting performance in a compact frame, reaching heights

up to 46’0” (14 m).

Power is via a Final Tier IV Mercedes-Benz turbo

diesel engine, providing 176 hp (129 kW) and 553 ft.lbs.

(750 Nm) of torque at 1600 rpm.

An automatic locking rear axle gives better lateral

stability. The frame also has the ability to level while

driving, by the use of proportional valves that provide

flexible and accurate movements. This frame levelling

will correct leaning or sloping of uneven terrain to eight

degrees in either direction.

Optional attachments include hook, jibs, carriage/

forks, tyre handlers, work platforms, and underground

work platform for this machine.

A remote control is available to control the machine

Operation is made easy with the Manitou JSM, joy-

allows the operator to steer with the left hand while the

right hand controls all hydraulic and machine movement

functions. The latest model operates in full-time four-

wheel drive with three steering modes, 2-wheel, 4-wheel

and crab.

The deluxe cab features a longitudinal stability indi-

cator, combined with an Aggravated Movements Arrestor

system, and a load status regulator that has been in-

stalled for increased safety during complex handling

operations. I
