Our TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) innovations

Discover the Manitou innovations that reduce the TCO (total cost of ownership) of your farm machinery. Compatible with several models of the MLT range of telehandlers, these innovative systems improve the profitability of your handling equipment and optimize their daily operation.

« Estimating the TCO of my machine allowed me to take into account all the data to calculate my production costs as accurately as possible. And thanks to Manitou's innovations, I benefit from a higher resale value and lower fuel and maintenance costs. So, I reduce the total cost of ownership of my machine on a daily basis. »

The TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) is the total cost of ownership of a property. In the case of an agricultural handling machine, this indicator takes into account the fixed investment costs (sales value, purchase price, annual tax) and variable costs (maintenance, extended warranty, fuel consumption, training costs). The lower the TCO of a machine, the more profitable you can become.

Manitou has developed several high-performance solutions on its MLT agricultural telehandlers. These innovations allow you to increase the residual value of your machine, save fuel and preventive maintenance costs, and improve your annual profitability.

  • Ecostop: this innovative system automatically switches off the engine when the driver has left the vehicle cab, based on a user-defined time period. This allows you to make significant savings on TCO (between 1500 and 3000 euros per year) and to limit the environmental impact of your machine.
  • JSM Auto Power: this innovation is available on Manitou telehandlers with hydrostatic transmission, automatically adjusts engine speed according to the operator's hydraulic power demand on the JSM Joystick (Joystick Switch & Move). This feature reduces your fuel consumption and lowers the noise level of the machine by providing the right engine speed for the right need at the right time.
  • Automatic Grease System (AGS): this system automatically lubricates critical components of your machine for optimized maintenance and elimination of manual operations.
  • Eco mode: this solution automatically reduces the engine speed when the machine's speed is stabilized at high rpm, which limits fuel consumption, noise and pollutant emissions.


Take advantage of these innovations to improve the profitability of your Manitou equipment!
