This month we have added a new line to our range in the form of Manitou MT625 6m Telehandler Forklifts.

The MT625 is a compact telehandler (1.92m in height and 1.81m wide) allowing it to easily get around site and under height restricted areas. It has a lifting capacity of 5.85m and 2500kg.

Its Kubota diesel engine is optimised for exceptionally low fuel consumption, while providing enough power to carry out the jobs in hand.
