I looked at the equivalent Manitou, but if you’re bringing something to a job on a low loader, it might as well be bigger.


Lovely machine though, and nice pics.

Helluva little machine Mick.

Think that one goes about 4.5t.

 

Will lift 3t and wrestle a lot more.

There is a couple of them on the market that are legal to move on trailer behind pickup and still have a good lift capacity.

How’s that work? I thought you could tow 3.5 tonnes before you needed air brakes

Schaeffer and Kramer do some nice offerings in the sub 3.5 ton range too.

Spotted this the other day on another platform, not such great lift though, might aswell have an Avant/multi one and be able to use attachments

All those telehandlers will bog quicker than you can say ‘oh shit’ if the ground isn’t perfect. All they gain is reach and possibly a bit of load capacity. They’re a builders tool, not an Arb tool.  For repetitive cycles off-road using attachments a multione type will be much more efficient.
