Rough-terrain machines ideal for the construction / maintenance of military infrastructures

The Defense sector is regularly tasked with building military bases, land and infrastructure, and then maintaining and operating these locations.

Manitou machines meet all of these requirements and provide dealerships around the world with solutions perfectly adapted to their problems.

Telescopic construction trucks, aerial work platforms, forklifts, skid steer loaders and rotary telescopic handlers are the most widely used Manitou ranges for construction and maintenance in the defense sector. Thanks to their all-terrain design and 4-wheel steering, they can easily operate on a variety of different types of ground, including rough, uneven or muddy terrain. Their different functionalities make them ideal machines to carry out all your operations efficiently:
- Maintenance of the equipment and maintenance of the material
