New Masted Piggyback Forklift

Manitou Launches New Masted Piggyback Forklift

From 29th April to 1st May 2014, at a preview at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham (United Kingdom), the Manitou group will present the new masted truck-mounted forklift concept.

Displaying all of the know-how that the Manitou brand has acquired in truck-mounted forklifts over more than 20 years, the 4 new models in the TMM range represent an optimal supplement to the range, to cope with all the requirements and uses of transport professionals, particularly for the markets of the United Kingdom, Germany, Benelux and France.


Manitou knows and incorporates the constraints of users in the design of its truck-mounted forklifts. The masted embedded TMM are lighter and allow the carrier to optimize its load trailer. The election of a naturally aspirated engine participates in the optimization working time by reducing the capital of the truck. The carriage is effective immediately without waiting for the engine to warm up enough. The attachment kit is multi and what optimizes the initial investment. Because the embedded carriage spends its life outside the painting follows the steps blasting and electrophoresis for maintaining quality over time.


TMM range available in 4 - Way. These trucks are ideally suited for handling long loads in a confined space. The positioning of the two front wheels side walk is automatically activating by a single button.


The 4 new models are equipped with a Kubota engine:- 4 cylinders in line- Power 35.1 hp - 26.5 kilowatts- € IIIA / Tier IV Interim Kubota was chosen for its reputation, the quality of its products and periodicity reduced maintenance of its engines (500h instead of 250h ), which reduces significantly the maintenance costs in the intensive applications framework.


Each 4 new models feature hydrostatic transmission, allowing precision and flexibility in driving but also in the movement of mast during handling operations. It enhances the adhesion of floor machines and facilitates the movement in difficult terrain during application on soils not stabilities (such as sites, cobbled streets, etc).

Better weight distribution ensures optimal stability

The braking, and therefore the operator safety is guaranteed thanks to the 3 braked wheels as standard. The presence of stabilizers as standard increases performance carts and gives maximum height capacity, the best on the market.

4 models of truck-mounted forklifts are available with 3 mast height (lateral movement) : 3m standard , 3.6 meters and 3.9 meters; height Maximum, particularly suitable crossing lockers trailer purpose pallet height on site.

More Reach

Optional across the 4 models, they can have telescopic fork or a pantograph, which cumulatively allow handling only on one side of the truck.
