Options abound on new M series

Manitou has redesigned its M series rough-terrain, vertical-mast forklifts, which come in 6,000-, 8,000- and 10,000-pound capacities. The company also plans to introduce a 12,000-pound forklift later this year. Users have the option of two- or four-wheel drive, torque converter or hydrostatic transmissions, Perkins or Cat engines and open, semi- or fully enclosed cabs. The company is offering frame leveling on a masted truck, which allows you to level your truck and load before placing the load on a landing area. The cab tilts forward to provide service access for daily maintenance checks. The one-piece unitized mainframe has full fenders.
