Manitou is accelerating the roll-out of its “Oxygen” low emissions range with new models on display at Bauma in Munich this week. The 200 ATJe rough-terrain platform (working height of 20 meters) is now available with four-wheel steer for greater manoeuvrability and a basket that can now take 250 kg of load, 30 kg more than on the two-wheel drive version. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is reduced with an almost 50% decrease in maintenance costs compared to the internal combustion version. The range of rough-terrain electric telehandlers also welcomes two models, 160 ATJe and 180 ATJe. With a working height of 16 meters and 18 meters respectively, these platforms also see their capacity increased by 50 kg for a basket that can take a total weight of 250 kg.

There is also a second version named 160 ATJ+ e, with capacity significantly increased to 400 kg. A range extender solution is also presented in the form of a removable generator common to all the machines, allowing for a week of autonomy.
As safety is at the heart of Manitou Group’s mission, the 160, 180 and 200 ATJe models come with a Safety Pack, protecting the operator and the site teams, as well as alerting fleet managers to any high-risk behaviour. The innovations in this pack include forgotten harness detection and detection of obstacles around the machine’s chassis. A “lighting” pack ensures the utmost safety for platform loading and unloading operations with a number of lights positioned on the platform to see and be seen.

Arnaud Boyer, VP of Marketing & Product Development adds: “With all these new products, Manitou Group is the first manufacturer to have a range of 100% electric rough-terrain platforms from 16 meters to 20 meters. The acceleration of our electric development allows us to now offer low-emission solutions across our platform ranges, as well as on our telehandlers. We will continue to extend this energy to other ranges in accordance with the objectives of our CSR roadmap”.
A new version of the 120 AETJ platform has also been added to the industrial range. Presented as a sneak preview, this model
has been entirely redesigned and is fitted with AC (asynchronous) motors providing comfort and flexibility of use. A lot of work has been done on the accessibility of the components, such as the pivoting battery containers and tool-free access, for
savings on machine maintenance. This new generation of industrial articulated platforms is equipped with the same
diagnosis system as the rough-terrain range for rapid maintenance without the need for external tools.
