Manitou is to launch an all new 60ft Rough Terrain articulated boom at Bauma next week - the 200ATJ
The new boom lift is part of the company’s new ‘Oxygen’ range of environmentally friendly machines. It employs a dual sigma type riser, two section telescopic boom and articulating jib. Of key interest is the all new drivetrain that uses two heavy duty telehandler type axles, powered by and a large AC drive motor. Adding a hybrid option to this machine should be quite simple.
Full details and specification of the new machine will be released on Monday, shortly after the show opens. We will cover it fully in the boom lift feature of the next Cranes & Access magazine.
The company will also unveil a new mystery compact telehander
