On July 18th, Manitou Australia organised a special event to celebrate and show its support to the MANITOU Elevation Week.

The concept was simple: get as many clothing items as possible and fill a Manitou bucket! In only a couple of hours… the challenge was already completed!

200 KG of clothing items: jeans, tee-shirts, coats and shoes were collected from MAU Staff and even from Dial A Dump Industries (DADI) which is one of the leading waste management service providers in New South Wales based in the neighborhood.

The 200 KG of clothing were then distributed to the local St Vincent De Paul Charity Association in Sydney, Australian association with more than 40,000 members and volunteers, who work hard to assist people in need and combat social injustice across Australia. (more information here).

Liftrite Hire & Sales, an Australian Manitou Dealer, also managed to organise their very own Manitou FILL A BUCKET day at their local head office in Perth, Western Australia. Their initiative was very successful and they managed to fill a whole bucket with clothing items!

We would like to thank Liftrite for taking the time to participate, Dial A Dump Industries for supporting the initiative and bringing more than 20kg of bags! And also, the complete staff at MAU for making it happen. Thank you!

Manitou on the mountain top

Our dealer in Mongolia, Dastan Nigamet recently achieved a feat that only very few people have the chance to experiment.
Dastan climbed one of the Altai Mountains , a wide mountain range boarding Mongolia, China, Russia and Kazakhstan. He has ascended the country’s most western point (4080 m above sea level) during few days.

This big fan of Manitou carried out a Manitou flag during this incredible experience.

Congratulations again for this performance Dastan. We are very proud to be part on this amazing adventure.

10 Teleskopen für Roggenland Vermietung

Die Arbeitsbühnen- und Staplervermietung Roggenland hat sich für 10 Teleskopstapler von Manitou entschieden. Ende Januar erfolgte die Übergabe der Maschinen durch unseren Vertriebspartner, die Firma Wasmus Gabelstapler. Statt des üblichen Manitou-Rot leuchten die Teleskopen jetzt im grün-gelb der Firma Roggenland.

Die gewählten Manitou Modelle der MT Reihe decken Hubhöhen von 6 Meter (MT 625) bis rund 18 Meter (MT 1840) ab. Dabei können bis zu 4.000 kg bewegt werden. Die Leistung der neu angeschafften Maschinen beträgt zwischen 75 und 102 PS. Ausgestattet sind die Manitous mit Palettengabeln.

In der Wahl der Maschinen spielten laut Roggenland vor allem hohe Qualität, Zuverlässigkeit und Robustheit eine Rolle. In allen Maschinen sind die gleichen Komponenten verbaut, was die Wartung besonders einfach macht. Ausschlaggebend war aber auch die moderne Abgastechnologie. Inhaber Heinrich Roggenland erzählt:  „In den Manitou Teleskopstaplern sind  die Rußpartikelfilter serienmäßig verbaut. Saubere Technologie ist uns wichtig.“

Roggenland weiter: „Für unsere Kunden ist einfaches Handling ein wichtiger Faktor. In diesem Aspekt haben uns die Manitou MTs voll überzeugt.“  Die Manitou MT Teleskopstapler sind durch ihre hohe Bodenfreiheit und die seitliche und frontale Stabilität für schwieriges Gelände geeignet.  Für Stabilität sorgt auch der  Niveau-Ausgleich, der bis zu +/-  9° kompensiert.  Der enge Wenderadius sorgt für leichte Manövrierbarkeit.

Die Fa. Roggenland hat ihren Sitz in Everswinkel in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Der Partnerlift Kooperationsbetrieb vermietet seit 17 Jahren Arbeitsbühnen, seit 10 Jahren Teleskopstapler. Die Kunden setzen die gemieteten Maschinen hauptsächlich im Baubereich ein.

Die Wasmus Gabelstapler GmbH hat bereits rund 40 Jahre Jahre Erfahrung im Vertrieb von Manitou Produkten:  Teleskopstapler, drehbare Teleskopen, Arbeitsbühnen und Stapler der Marke Manitou sind bei Fa. Wasmus im Angebot. Von ihrem Standort im niedersächsischen Melle aus betreuen sie Kunden in Bau, Industrie und Landwirtschaft.

Yes, we feel you too… Welcome to Likuliku lagoon resort in Fiji.

For now more than 10 years, the resort has been equipped with Manitou MT-X machines to lift, carry and load boats, trucks or containers. They recently bought the MT-X 1440 for its versatility and its reliability.

“It cannot do everything, but it can do more of everything than anything else.” says the group engineer at the Likuliku lagoon resort.

Prior to buying the Manitou MT-X 1440, the resort had owned an MT-X 1740 for many years which was used for loading and carrying heavy loads in salt water, on top of hills, etc. It had a very busy life and has now retired in the highlands of the island.

The new MAN’GO 12 now available in Oceania!

Firstly released in European markets earlier in 2015, Manitou Australia is proud to announce the launch the new Manitou MAN’GO 12 in Australia, New Zealand and the rest of Oceania.

New design, new concept and new diesel boom lift, the MAN’GO 12 is a significant breakthrough compared to existing models of access platforms. It concentrates the essential qualities of Manitou access platforms while offering a new alternative for the rental companies market.

  • LIGHTNESS. With a weight close to 4 tons, the MAN'GO is about 1 ton lighter than its competitors, which represents significant savings in terms of transport for rental companies.
  • COMPACTNESS. At 1.80 m width, it is 10 cm narrower than its competitors, hence it is easier to use it in restricted environments.
  • SIMPLICITY. Equipped with only 1 joystick to lift the entire structure, the MAN’GO 12 is very easy to use and perfect for beginners.
  • LOWTCO. An attractive purchase price, transport cost savings, low consumption and a simplified maintenance: maximum attractiveness for rental companies.

Watch the demonstration video here.
