The MT 420 H super-compact telehandler is the smallest in the MT range.

Its turning radius and 3 steering modes (4WS/2WS/Crab) provide excellent maneuverability. The MT 420 H has a capacity of 4,400 lbs (2,000 kg) at 14 ft. 3 in. (4.3) m, giving it a high performance load chart. The 56 hp (42 kW) engine and 2-speed hydrostatic transmission has the power to reach 15.5 mph (25 km/h). Another advantage is the simultaneous movements of the lift and extend functions that further increase productivity.
