Manitou MLT 961-145 V+ L

Agricultural Telehandlers

The MLT 961-145 V+ is a specially designed telehandler for heavy-duty activities. The 141 hp John Deere (Stage IV / Final Tier 4) engine will provide the power and speed you need, with controlled fuel consumption to minimize the impact your machine has on the environment. The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) ensures smoothness while maintaining torque. The reinforced oil-bath immersed brakes ensure a long braking life, while the automatic radiator unclogging system reverses airflow for constant optimum cooling, particularly in dusty environments. Maximum travel speed adjustment and mode selectors (standard or maintenance) let you choose controls that meet your needs and provide comfort and security. The inching pedal helps you precisely approach and grab loads. The driver's cab features many adjustable elements to accommodate all shapes and sizes so the operator remains comfortable when working long hours. The cab is also is set up for watertightness (pressurisation optional) and JSM (Joystick Switch & Move) control to provide simplicity of performing all machine functions and directional drive with one hand.
