Manitou Group, a worldwide reference in handling, personnel lifting, and earth moving solutions, is launching a limited series of NewAg models. Here at Groundwater Lift Trucks, we are one of the lucky dealers hand-selected to be offered one of these limited edition trucks and are now in proud ownership of a Limited Edition Manitou MLT 737-130 PS+ – 1 of only 133 manufactured!
For farmers seeking a customized machine that offers even more comfort, Manitou Group developed two agricultural models, MLT 737-130 PS+ and MLT 741-140 V+, within the NewAg range. With two available transmission types (Powershift and M-Vario Plus), users will be able to choose the model that is most suitable for their needs. The exclusive MLT 737-130 telehandler has a unique design that uses a gray color called “Volcano”, which symbolizes performance and efficiency, contrasting with red and black to highlight its dynamics and suggest constant movement. For the first time since its launch on the market, this series has a 3D logo with the NewAg signature on the door, extending each user a personalized welcome.
Camille Rouvrais, Product Manager for the MLTs, says:
“With this limited edition, we would like to give our customers who are seeking an exclusive machine an even more customized solution. These models are among the best equipped on the market. The design is also unique, with many new developments. We are convinced that our customers will appreciate this limited series!”
The extensive equipment available for this limited edition can be divided into three categories. The first is equipment designed for user comfort. The MLT 737-130 PS+ has a leather low frequency suspension seat that provides excellent seating comfort and a significant reduction in vibrations to protect the operator’s back.
The steering wheel and armrest are also trimmed in leather, giving the interior of the cabin a higher-end look. Two SafeView cameras on the right and back of the machine offer enhanced security and more convenience for the operator. Other equipment in the cabin includes a USB Bluetooth car radio with microphone (100W) and a “Vision” screen for greater visibility of the information shown on the dashboard.
The second category of equipment relates to performance. The MLT 737-130 PS+ has Active CRC boom suspension in order to limit shocks when moving with a load while protecting the structural components of the boom.
The last category of equipment represented in this limited edition is profitability. Hydraulic locking of attachments, available standard, saves time for the operator. LED work lights are installed in the cabin, and the work lights on the boom and main beam headlights are also LED.
Representing 15% to 30% of total use time, idling speed costs the user approximately £8.65 (€10 per hour). This estimate takes into account the three main components of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), namely fuel consumption, machine depreciation, and maintenance. To limit these costs, Manitou Group has equipped this truck with the Ecostop feature. This feature automatically stops the engine and the associated hour meter when the machine is idling without a conductor in the cabin.
WITH 133 AVAILABLE MACHINES, THIS LIMITED SERIES REFLECTS MANITOU GROUP’S CAPACITY TO OFFER MODELS THAT ARE ALWAYS MORE INNOVATIVE AND TRULY CUSTOMISED.
