Manitou Group, a worldwide reference in handling, personnel lifting, and earth moving solutions, is launching a limited series of two NewAg models, the MLT 737 and MLT 741. Available in Europe, this unique version has the latest innovations and has one of the widest ranges of equipment on the market.
For farmers seeking a customized machine that offers even more comfort, Manitou Group developed two agricultural models, MLT 737-130 PS+ and MLT 741-140 V+, within the NewAg range. With two available transmission types (Powershift and M-Vario Plus), users will be able to choose the model that is most suitable for their needs. These exclusive telehandlers have a unique design that uses a gray color called Volcano, which symbolizes performance and efficiency, contrasting with red and black to highlight its dynamics and suggest constant movement. For the first time since its launch on the market, this series has a 3D logo with the NewAg signature on the door, extending each user a personalized welcome. Camille Rouvrais, Product Manager for the MLTs, says: “With this limited edition, we would like to give our customers who are seeking an exclusive machine an even more customized solution. These two models are among the best equipped on the market. The design is also unique, with many new developments. We are convinced that our customers will appreciate this limited series!”
The extensive equipment available for this limited edition can be divided into three categories. The first is equipment designed for user comfort. Telehandlers MLT 737-130 PS+ and MLT 741-140 V+ have a leather low frequency suspension seat that provides excellent seating comfort and a significant reduction in vibrations to protect the operator’s back. The steering wheel and armrest are also trimmed in leather, giving the interior of the cabin a higher-end look. Two SafeView cameras on the right and back of the machine offer enhanced security and more convenience for the operator. Other equipment in the cabin includes a USB bluetooth car radio with microphone (100W) and a “Vision” screen for greater visibility of the information shown on the dashboard.
The second category of equipment relates to performance. Both models have Active CRC boom suspension in order to limit shocks when moving with a load while protecting the structural components of the boom. The Intelligent Hydraulics triptych (bucket shaking, return to load position, and combined movements of the boom and telescope at the same time) designed for greater productivity is available on the limited series MLT 741-140 V+.
The last category of equipment represented in this limited edition is profitability. Hydraulic locking of attachments, available standard, saves time for the operator. Available on the MLT 741-140 V+, the Regenerative Hydraulics function offers gravity-controlled boom lowering, which increases the speed of hydraulic movements and reduces the use of fuel. This function also reduces noise, especially noise associated with the use of the hydraulics. LED work lights are installed in the cabin, and the work lights on the boom and main beam headlights are also LED.
Representing 15% to 30% of total use time, idling speed costs the user approximately €10 per hour. This estimate takes into account the three main components of TCO, namely fuel consumption, machine depreciation, and maintenance. To limit these costs, Manitou Group has equipped this limited series with the Ecostop feature. This feature automatically stops the engine and the associated hour meter when the machine is idling without a conductor in the cabin.
Of course, the entire range of Manitou Group services are available on these two connected models, to include extended warranties, maintenance contracts, and financing solutions.
With 133 available machines, this limited series reflects Manitou Group’s capacity to offer models that are always more innovative and truly customized. This collection will be delivered all over Europe starting in the first quarter 2021.
