Manitou Group will unveil new products from all three of its brands – Manitou, Gehl and Mustang – at the 2018 World of Concrete show in Las Vegas in Booth C5845. The company will begin with a direct broadcast event at its booth Jan. 23, 10 a.m. PST, announcing a new product design for 2018.
Shown for the first time at World of Concrete will be the Gehl RT215 compact track loader and Gehl RS9-50 GEN:3 telescopic handler. The all-new Gehl RT215 is a 72-hp track loader with simplified controls designed for ease-of-use and enhanced control responsiveness. With a rated operating capacity of 2,150 pounds, the Gehl RT215 provides an economical solution for applications that don’t require the sophistication of an electrical control system. The unit includes standard automatic hydraulic track tensioning – IdealTrax – and an optional IdealAccess fold-up door.
The Gehl RS9-50 GEN:3 telehandlers will also make its debut at WOC. The unit is designed for the masonry industry, providing unbeatable performance at the highest utilization rates. An additional boom section provides extended reach and efficient material placement, and its frame design eliminates the need for front outriggers. Also a single joystick option places boom extension and retraction, attachment tilt, auxiliary hydraulics and travel direction all on the same joystick. It can lift up to 9,000 pounds, reach heights up to 50 feet and extend 36 feet, seven inches. The Tier 4 120-horsepower engine and four-speed power shift transmission gives it 360 foot-pounds of torque with four-wheel drive, three steering modes and speeds up to 20 mph.
The MRT 2550 Privilege Plus Series 2 rotating telescopic handler from Manitou operates in three working modes – telehandler, winch and platform – performing several tasks with one machine. This capability, along with a variety of attachments – provides more versatility to adapt to multiple applications. The unit has a maximum load capacity of 11,000 pounds, lift height of 81 feet and a 156-ho Mercedes engine. Advanced software allows for precise material handling, continuously analyzing the position of the load in accordance with the working configuration of the MRT.
The Manitou Group will also show the Mustang 3200VT vertical track loader. With an operating capacity of 3,200 pounds and newly designed vertical-lift path loader arm, the unit provides more pushing power and capacity, with top-rated safety features and customized options. Comfort is improved with a seat-mounted pilot joystick, heavy-duty suspension seat and full-color line-of-sight dash display. The 3200VT can be ordered with Mustang’s IdealAccess fold-up door.
Additional machines from all three brands will be on display. For more information on the Gehl direct broadcast event on Jan. 23, or to watch the broadcast, visit www.gehl.com/pilotapproved. For more information on the Manitou Group, go to Manitou-group.com
