History of the Manitou brand
Andrée Braud imagined, in the 1950s, a machine that would combine the capabilities of an agricultural tractor with the additional advantages of an added vertical mast. This is how the first all-terrain telescopic handler was born some time later with the company Braud-Faucheux in 1958. Marcel Braud and Henri Faucheux will jointly develop this type of equipment which they decide to name "Manitou". It was in 1935 that the company took the name of its flagship equipment and became the Manitou Group. The Manitou group now offers solutions for agriculture, construction, industry and aeronautics. It offers equipment such as construction telescopic handlers, agricultural telescopic handlers, rotary forklifts, articulated loaders, aerial work platforms, on-board forklifts and even forklifts.
What are the specificities of Manitou telescopic handlers?
Manitou agricultural telehandlers all meet the latest Stage V or Tier 4 final standard. There are about twenty models according to the needs of each agricultural activity. The different models of telehandlers are called MHT, MT, MLT, they are then distinguished by their power, their overall height and their type of transmission. Of course, in order to be able to respond to all agricultural activities, Manitou provides a whole range of accessories: square bale forks, fork carriers, grapple bucket, silage cutter, gallows, bale grab, manure fork or even sweeper-collector.
How to choose a Manitou telescopic handler?
Why choose a Manitou telescopic handler? According to farmers, the main strengths of a telehandler are its ability to load and unload quickly. Maneuverability is therefore one of the main arguments of Manitou telescopic handlers with high throughput and 4 steering modes. A clear view and a quiet cabin are other options. Manitou also provides exclusive functions such as the Quick lift, Bucket shaker or Return to Load in order to make agricultural operations even more pleasant and simple to perform. In order to choose the ideal Manitou telescopic handler for your activity, you need to think about the future use of your forklift: what will be the maximum weight you will have to transport?

It is these little details that will allow you to choose a large and powerful telescopic handler or a Manitou compact forklift ideal for activities in confined spaces.
