German rental company Luibl Rental & Sales has ordered 80 telehandlers and boom lifts from Manitou for delivery in 2022.

The order includes Manitou’s largest telehandler, the new 35 metre/7,000kg MRT 3570 Vision+, and a large number of Manitou MT fixed frame telehandlers, along with a full suite of Manitou boom lifts.

The move is part of the company’s plan to expand its telehandler line up and includes the four metre/2,000kg MT420 and six metre/2,500kg MT 625 compact models. It has also ordered some of the new nine metre/3,000kg MT 930 and classic four tonne models – the 14 metre MT 1440 and 18 metre MT 1840.

The 360 degree telehandler order includes the 18 metre/4,500kg MRT 1845 Vision and from the new Vision+ line up, it has taken units of the 22 metre MRT 2260, 26 metre MRT 2660 and 30 metre MRT 3060, all with 6,000kg lift capacity. The only model it has not ordered is the 25 metre/7,000kg heavy duty MRT 2570, where it chose the 26 metre/7,000kg Magni RTH 7.26s.

It also added the manufacturer’s new battery powered 59ft 200 ATJ E Rough Terrain articulated boom lift.

Luibl owner Karl Bauer said: “I checked out the newly developed Manitou MT 930 at the Platformers' Days exhibition and was impressed by its compact dimensions and respectable performance data. We also appreciate the high reliability and low downtime of Manitou telehandlers.”

"The new additions will be available with all accessories such as shovels, load hooks, long load hooks, winches, lattice boom winches, fold out work platforms including the special one with six metre extension arm for special operations. All machines are also equipped with trailer pins and radio remote controls."
