MANITOU MT 1840 – INSIDE THE CAB

Working on a construction site? If so, then a standard counterbalance truck is in all likelihood unsuitable. On the other hand, a telehandler will allow you to reach out and over obstacles. Watch Locators’ video guide below to look inside the cab of Manitou’s MT 1840.

If you do have any questions regarding Manitou checks please do not hesitate to call one of our friendly team members on 01202 854 200.

00:00 - Introduction
Good morning and welcome to this Locators video. Today, we shall be doing a product features and walk-around on the Manitou MT 1840 with a Stage Five engine.
00:09 - Easy Step
On the 1840, not only do we have the Easy Step to make it easy – in and out of the cab – we’ve also got . . . electric window, fully adjustable cloth seat, fitted with a retractable seatbelt but also a seatbelt interlock to indicate – via a green beacon – when a seatbelt is worn by the driver. We’ve got a fully adjustable steering column. We’ve got directional air vents that will help make it nice and cool in the cab. In this instance, because the customer has specified air conditioning – so we’ve also got that fitted, and the controls are right here on the dash. Very easy for the operator to find. The cab is also filtered – in its natural state – with or without air conditioning.
00:55 - Enhanced Dash
The 1840 Stage Five comes with a new dash. Very clear and easy to use, particularly compared to older machines. You can see – very easily – parking buttons, automatic parking, bucket mode, swing load mode, flashing beacon on and off, joystick isolation for road use, and other buttons which help you navigate through the dash should you need to reset the hours – should you need to do a periodic reset on the LMI, in itself. The LMI – you can see is here and is very easy to spot.
01:35 - Interior Features
Other standard features for a UK fit would be the inner rear-view mirror. Obviously, the level-bubble to enable the operator to make sure the boom is level before he carries out these lifts, side wiper – very handy on a rainy day – all the lights here – all the light controls for the roof beacons, and so on and so forth and all the wipers. We’ve got a roof blind to make sure that the sun doesn’t beat down on the operator.
02:00 - Ergonomically Designed
All Manitou MT machines are fitted with a JSM joystick – that’s joystick switch and move. You can clearly see how ergonomic the joystick is in itself and how easy my hand fits to it. The new Stage Five joystick comes with a capacitive sensor so I don’t have any buttons to press to activate the hydraulics. I just put my hand on the joystick and the machine detects it. On the front, I’ve got the forward and reverse. Very easy. The two rollers control the boom telescope, and the auxiliary service. In this case, the double forks positioning. Very easy to use.
02:39 - In Conclusion

What our clients say

We are very pleased with the change from an engine to an electric fleet. The trucks have been well received by our operators as they are comfortable and quiet to drive and give excellent protection from the elements. We even have the option and flexibility to use spare batteries and a simple battery change system if we ever want to work back to back shifts in the future. Locators also design, supply and install all types of racking and storage systems. They reconfigured the CooperVision warehouse for narrow aisle operation which increases the storage density and pallet locations. Locators supplied Aisle-Master articulated forklifts to work in this area.

Coopervision, Hamble

We have worked with Locators for nearly 20 years. We are confident they can always make the best use of the space we have available and provide us with forklifts that are well suited for the long loads and other stock we have to move.

Colin Macgregor
Director, Y Goldberg

Every time we look at an application, Locators approach it like a blank canvas and always recommend the best equipment for our business. Locators have proved themselves as a very reliable and proactive service provider by keeping our trucks working and our fleet costs as low as possible.

Adam Conrad
Group Transport Manager for Covers

Being able to work with one supplier for storage and materials handling has been a benefit to us. Locators managed the complete installation and ensured the correct materials handling equipment was specified for their design. They also service and maintain all of the equipment they have supplied and offer a rack inspection service to make sure our warehouse remains a safe working environment. We are very happy with our new facility and we believe we have made the best use of the available space.

Marc Congdon
Engineering Manager, Costa

We purchased our first Toyota forklift from Locators 14 years ago for our farm. This truck has been very reliable and is still in service so we had no hesitation in deciding to purchase another Toyota machine. Locators recommended an electric forklift for our machinery depot as it is very quiet, has low running costs and does not create any pollution, making it ideal for working both inside and outside. Our operators are very pleased with our new Toyota truck and our business is very happy to be operating a forklift that has such a low impact on the environment.

Ed Smales
Director, NFFM

Locators installed the new racking system within a tight timeframe while our business was fully operational. They have provided us with a facility that has a similar storage capacity and reduced the size of our forklift fleet allowing us to lease one building instead of two. We are very happy with the outcome.

Paul Bickell
Nippon Express

Locators gave us the benefit of working with just one supplier for all of the storage and materials handling requirements of this project. By mixing 3 and 4 wheel trucks from the same model range, we have gained extra pallet locations and have the option to battery change between them and work multi-shift in the future. I was initially sceptical that electric trucks could replace LPG, but I am very pleased with the successful outcome of this project.

Mark Davis
Logistics Supervisor for Hall & Woodhouse brewery

It is a great benefit to us that we have a single source supplier who understands the needs of our business. This saves us time, improves efficiency and ultimately reduces cost.
