Manitou Group, worldwide reference in handling, aerial lift platforms and earthmoving, presents its new range of articulated loaders at a dedicated event.
The Group’s aim is to offer a very wide range of products to meet the needs of all its users.
With 12 new models, Manitou Group has extended its range of articulated loaders, which now comprises 22 models, all available under the Gehl AL (Articulated Loader) and Manitou MLA (Manitou Loader Articulated) brands.
These new products offer a load capacity ranging from 700 kg to 1.5 t for a lifting height of between 2.50 m for a short arm and 3.07 m for a long arm. In order to offer a level of performance adapted to each model, series 2 and 3 models are equipped with a 25 hp stage V engine, and series 4 and 5 with 48 hp.
The complete range makes it possible to respond to very wide-ranging demands, with the largest of the articulated loaders providing a nominal load capacity of up to 3.3 tonnes. This depth of range is aimed at many markets thanks to a wide selection of attachments comprising more than 100 products, including buckets, forks and bale clamps, as well as levelers and augers.
The wide variety of applications enables the Group to target very different markets, be it agriculture, with stable and livestock maintenance, or construction, with specifically designed models (AL320/MLA 3-25 H-C and AL420/MLA 4-50 H-C for “Construction”).
These two versions also allow pallets of materials to be handled on urban sites, where there are space constraints. It should also be noted that with such a broad product range, the new articulated loaders will also fully meet the expectations of landscapers and horticulturists.
All the models are equipped with hydrostatic transmission for added performance. The Manitou MLA 2-25H and Gehl AL 230 models have a hydraulic motor on each wheel to make these small machines even more maneuverable in any environment. These new models will all be available in all the Gehl and Manitou distribution networks in Europe in June.
