Key Feature

The Manitou Telehandler MHT-X 1490 is a telescopic handler with a lifting capacity of up to 9 tonnes, being particularly well-suited to the extractive and public works sectors. It comes equipped with a three-section boom as well as outriggers for excellent offset and height (6 tonnes at 14 m). The frame levelling system allows for optimal stability during tyre-based manoeuvres.

Equally at ease on uneven ground, the MHT-X 1490 is an all-terrain machine with 4 driven and steered wheels. A hydrostatic transmission powers its precision and smooth approaches to loads and can be made even more versatile thanks to the wide number of compatible attachments available.
