The advantages of our ultra-compact carts

The ULM machines are comfortable. They contribute to improving your safety and profitability. Their unique design gives them precious assets, which will make them indispensable equipment in your daily work.

- Enhanced safety
The roof grille has been removed and replaced by a transparent, impact-resistant polycarbonate window. The visibility when the load is in the upper position is exceptional, and the cab still meets the FOPS standard.

- Machines designed for your profitability
Thanks to an anti-emulsion filter, the ULM truck is equipped with a hydraulic tank whose capacity is reduced by 25% compared to standard tanks. This reduces your costs. In addition, the hydraulic compensation has been replaced by an electronic compensation: the absence of a cylinder also reduces the need for oil, and limits the weight of the machine, as well as its width.

- Your comfort first
The Switch and Move Joystick (JSM), positioned on a floating armrest, allows you to work comfortably: you control your machine, and can make all movements with one hand safely and without fatigue.
- Connected machines, to save you time
The ULM range of forklifts are connected machines: this means that you will have information and alerts on your PC, your tablet, your smartphone, to control maintenance, anticipate maintenance operations, reduce intervention times and monitor performance.

"For this project, the Manitou group received support from the Brittany region and in particular from the European regional development fundsFEDER, to help it invest in research, technological development and innovation, via the call for projects "innovation for the industry of the future" aimed at Breton SMEs and ETIs."
