The updated model is powered by a Cummins B 6.7litre, 325hp Tier IV Stage V diesel engine and benefits from an all-new touch-screen display for improved operator control.

Lifting and operational capacities remain unchanged, the two section 16.1m (53ft) main boom can lift a 27t rough ground with outriggers deployed, 15t on wheels alone and 18t when utilising the integrated rail gear system.

“Manitex is excited to announce new product enhancements to this rugged machine to keep up with the needs of the rail market with new improvements based on customer input. Manitex strives to meet the needs of our customers in the field, improving productivity and reliability” said George Pocock, industrial sales manager for Manitex.
