Manitou has introduced its MTA Easy74 telescopic handlers into the North American market. This new range includes three 74-horsepower telescopic handler models: the MTA 6642 Easy74 (pictured), the MTA 8044 Easy74 and the MTA 10055 Easy74.
Developed from the MTA Series III telescopic handlers, the new Easy74 machines are powered with a Tier 4 74-hp Cummins turbocharged diesel engine providing 295 foot-pounds of torque at 2,500 rpm. The engine requires only DOC exhaust treatment and does not require regeneration. This new engine package is coupled with a Dana 4-speed powershift transmission allowing full-time 4-wheel drive, 3 steering modes and machine travel speeds up to 15 miles per hour.
All lift and height capacities remain the same as the Manitou MTA Series III models.
