A super-compact design makes the MT420H Telehandler the smallest telehandler in the Manitou MT lineup. Its unique compactness makes it an excellent choice for building and remodeling projects since it permits access via tight openings and constrained places. Its small turning radius and three steering modes (4WS/2WS/Crab) enable it to navigate effortlessly. The MT420H is equipped with a four-wheel drive, Manitou’s famous JSM joystick control, and the newest Manitou LMI (Load Moment Indicator) consistent with EN15000 standards and has new Active Mode Regulation.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The Manitou MT420H Telehandler includes a low boom pivot point that allows for excellent all-around visibility from the operator’s seat, a quick start-up (only 10 seconds from start to drive), a single double-acting hydraulic service up the boom as standard (with a second available as an option), and well-protected hydraulic pipework. It is possible to add air conditioning as an add-on.

Regular maintenance may be performed with ease by lifting the lockable top-hinged hood. This provides easy access to the engine dipstick and the air filter, hydraulic oil filter, and coolant top-up. Additionally, by removing a lower panel and swinging out the cooler pack, easier servicing access is available to equipment such as the starter motor, hydraulic and hydrostatic pumps, and other similar components. The MT420H Buggy is equipped with a hydraulic fan drive as standard. There is an option of a reversing fan for usage in very dusty environments. An additional option for the new ultra-compact telehandler is the Easy Manager telematics system from Manitou, which delivers crucial location, operational, and management information.

A Heavy Duty Machine

The new MT420H has a maximum lift capability of 2,000kg and a maximum lift height of 4.3m, making it ideal for heavy-duty applications. The machine also can extend out to a maximum forward reach of 2.6m, with an 800kg capacity. The rough-terrain MT420H Buggy is equipped with a highly controllable two-speed hydrostatic transmission powered by a 36.5kW (49hp) Kubota four-cylinder diesel engine that is Stage IIIA emissions compliant and does not require the use of a DPF (diesel particulate filter) or a diesel exhaust fluid such as AdBlue. Due to its low height (1.9m when equipped with a tiny beacon) and thin width (1.49m), paired with three-mode steering (including crab steer), the vehicle may be maneuvered into very tight locations.

The MT 625’s cab is shared by the 420 H New Buggy and the MT 625. The workplace area is big and well-designed from an ergonomic standpoint. All of the controls are within reach and easily accessible. The hydrostatic transmission, which has a gear shift on the JSM, allows for more flexibility and pinpoint accuracy. It is possible to enter the cab without using a footboard. It’s simple to get used to the engine start-up and the JSM joystick controls.
