 Hello and welcome to this Locators video on the Manitou MT 625 DPF Regeneration.
00:07 - Manitou MT 625
The Manitou MT 625 Stage Five Engine is fitted with a DPF. The DPF is there to clean the soot and the particles before it goes through the exhaust system and therefore maintaining a cleaner exhaust profile, and complying with current legislation. Periodically, the DPF is required to do a regeneration to clean itself. *Opens chassis* Here you can see the DPF. There’s nothing here that the operator needs to do. It’s just purely situated in between the engine and the exhaust system. It’s all done through the management system, and some lights and a button in the cab.
00:55 - DPF Regeneration
As the machine is working, the engine increases in temperature. When it reaches the required temperature, the DPF regeneration is done in the background and the operator doesn’t really notice. This is called a passive regen. If for some reason this is interrupted, either by him deferring it using the button on the dash in an environment where it doesn’t want to regenerate, OR if he turns the engine off because his work is complete then that’s classed as a failed regen. This can be done a number of times before a machine will start to clog up and a static regen is required. If that happens, a light comes on – on the dash – or two lights come on – on the dash; the engine light and the DPF light – and a horn sounds. At this point, the operator has to park up, put the boom down – with the engine running – press the DPF button and it carries out its static regen. This is nothing to be worried about, it’s a very simple procedure. From there, the DPF will be cleaned and the machine can carry on working. It normally will take anywhere between fifteen and thirty minutes – depending on how full the DPF was in the first place. If you’ve used the machine fully – and not totalled around – this won’t really happen, and can be done by an engineer on a 500-hour service. That’s it. It’s as simple as that folks.

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.
