The Manitou MT 8044 telescopic handler lifts 7,000 pounds to its full lift height of 44 feet, and 8,000 pounds to 37 feet. It features a welded box-section-design boom. Increased operating capacities are achieved without the use of stabilizers or fluid-filled tires. For added stability, however, stabilizers are an optional feature. Other design features include a rugged frame with reinforced C-channels, internal wet disc brakes for longer life and better stopping capability, and a negative parking brake system.
