Manitou MI Industrial Forklift Range – a quiet achiever

July 01, 2016

Manitou have been long known for building highly capable and long lasting rough terrain forklifts, telescopic handlers and access machines but less known for industrial forklifts. Several years ago Manitou fully redeveloped it’s Industrial counterbalance internal combustion range from the ground up with a focus on quality and practicality.

The result is the MI or Manitou Industrial range of machines with capacities from 1.5 tons to 10 tons available with LPG or Diesel power plants. Key to the success of the MI range is the strongly contested 1.5 to 3.5 ton capacities where the MI stacks up strongly against the opposition products and is head and shoulders above many of the units in the market.

Manitou have taken their usual no nonsense approach that has worked well for them in the rest of the Manitou equipment portfolio – All the things that you need and nothing that you don’t, preferring to provide equipment to get the job done over frills. With a strong focus on the key areas of operator comfort, easy of use and maintenance backed up with strong technical specifications and build quality the MI range has a lot to offer. As a result Manitou has produced a solid machine that will go the distance with a strong enough range to fill the majority of applications.

This range is somewhat a quiet achiever, if you are looking for Industrial Forklifts, the MI is a solid place to start. Contact the LiftRite Hire & Sales team about your materials handling needs and get the quiet achiever on your side.
