Manitou's MT Series of telescopic handlers includes the MT 6642 and the MT 8044. The MT 6642 has 42 feet of lift height with a rated operating capacity of 6,600 pounds. The larger of the two, the MT 8044, will lift 7,000 pounds to the full lift height of 44 feet and 8,000 pounds to 37 feet. Both models feature a welded box-section design boom, making them one of the strongest on the market. Increased operating capacities are achieved without the use of stabilizers or fluid-filled tires, although for added stability stabilizers are an optional feature. Rear axle stabilization is provided on the new MT Series machines, which improves stability when the boom is raised more than 60 degrees, when the parking brake is applied, or when the work platform system is activated.

Mustang's Value Series of telescopic handlers now features models 642 and 844. Model 642 has an increased lift height of 42 feet.
