Versatile machines adapted to your requirements

Manitou handling machines can easily be completed with various accessories. Thanks to their simplicity of installation, you get a tailor-made machine for each application.

Winches, road-rail excavators, buckets, forks, work platforms... our accessories make your equipment versatile, reducing your investment costs and simplifying your logistics. There is no longer a need to invest in several machines to do your work on railways and railway lines.

Manitou machines also have the advantage of being all-terrain. Our machines can travel on all types of surfaces, including uneven terrain, and in all conditions, even the most extreme (dust, humidity, confined space...).
