The Manitou Group recently announced that it is launching a limited series of two new Ag models, namely the MLT 737 and MLT 741. A total of 133 limited series machines will be available across all of Europe from now.
The machines feature a unique livery that uses a grey colour called Volcano, over the traditional red and black. The telehandlers will come with the choice of either a power-shift or M-Vario Plus transmission.
Both models have boom suspension and intelligent hydraulics (bucket shaking, return to load position, and combined movements of the boom and telescope at the same time).
Hydraulic locking of attachments will be standard. Meanwhile, the regenerative hydraulics function offers gravity-controlled boom lowering, which increases the speed of hydraulic movements and reduces the use of fuel. LED lights are used in the cab, on the boom and for main beam headlights.
Manitou are fitting the Ecostop feature which automatically stops the engine and the associated hour meter when the machine is idling without an operator in the cab.
Other features include a 3D logo with the ‘NewAg’ signature on the door, a leather seat, and leather trimmed steering wheel and armrest. Two cameras on the right and back of the machine offer increased visibility. Other equipment includes a USB bluetooth radio and a ‘Vision’ screen for greater visibility of dashboard information.
