One of the most eagerly-awaited new machines at ConExpo 2104 was the Manitou MHT 1490 heavy lift telehandler.

The new machine – which is a pre-cursor to a further launch of larger heavy lift models later in the year – has a lift capacity of 9.0 tonnes and a lift height of 14 metres.

The new unit is powered by a Tier 4 final diesel engine developing 131 kW (176 hp).
