High-performance machines adapted to the constraints of roofers

Thanks to its 60 years of experience in material handling, Manitou designs equipment specially adapted to roofing activities. Professionals in the sector can count on a complete range of latest-generation machines, including rotary telescopic telehandlers with work platforms (baskets) (MRT range), fixed telescopic handlers (MT range), and aerial work platforms (MEWP range).

These high-performance machines enable roofers to carry out their operations with safety in mind. Apart of laying tiles, slates, sheet metal, shingles, roofing repair, total covering or crawling operations, our telehandlers and aerial work platforms can carry one or more roofers and different loads depending on the nature, offset and height of the work.

Manitou material handling equipment can be used for all types of work, in new construction or renovation/rehabilitation of old buildings. Each range allows for different operations to be carried out.

MRT rotary telescopic handlers are ideal for working at rooftop heights and safely installing trusses or structural elements. Equipped with a basket, the range of construction telescopic handlers is particularly useful for bringing materials (pallets of slates and tiles, shingles, steel bins, metals, sandwich panels...) as close as possible to the craftsman, installing gutters and safety nets or ensuring fixings no matter the conditions of the ground.
