If you are looking for the perfect combination of power and productivity for your agricultural activities, the MLT 1040-145 PS L truck (with frame leveling) is the perfect machine for you. Fitted with the JSM (Joystick Switch & Move), automatic wheel alignment and exceptional cabin soundproofing (74 dB), it offers you comfort and reduces fatigue. The lifting height of 10 m means that you can optimize your floor space and store items high up inside your buildings. The numerous attachments available and the high ground clearance make this a versatile truck that is easy to maneuver on all types of terrain.
The 141 hp engine, combined with the Powershift 5-speed gearbox allows you to change gear smoothly. To reduce fuel consumption, there is an electronically regulated cooling system which controls the fan speed and reverses the air flow according to the engine temperature.
M-Shift- M-Shift gearboxes give you smooth shifting between gears, regardless of the situation, and can be used in both automatic and manual modes.
Performance- Whether in lifting capacity or height, engine power, longer battery autonomy or drawbar full, Manitou handling equipment shows it is the fruit of the labors of our various development departments. Constantly refining equipment performance is a source of pride for us, and the occasionally extreme working conditions all of us face are when users can see what our machines are really made of.
Rough Terrain- Manitou's all-terrain machines have extra ground clearance to overcome any obstacles in their path (such as potholes or uneven pavement) and keep moving forward when faced with uneven ground conditions. Additionally the 4-wheel drive and large tires provide all the traction you need to move loads over soft or difficult terrain (such as mud, sand, grass, gravel, etc.). Our engineers have developed equipment with optimized torque for significant tractive force while maintaining an excellent weight/power ratio, balanced weight distribution for each axle and low ground pressure.
Smoothness & Precision- Some sectors require smoothness and precision when approaching loads; occasionally caution is required or a load needs moving from a tight space as well. Certain Manitou machines come equipped with power steering, sharp turning radii, inching pedals and/or hydrostatic transmissions to make approaching loads as smooth as possible for you.
Lock-up- Direct torque converter lock-up allows the transmission to operate beyond certain speeds depending on the gear the machine is currently in. It improves performance, increases drawbar pull and reduces fuel consumption.
Joystick Switch & Move (JSM)- Manitou Joystick Switch & Move (JSM) controls are standard issue for the MLT, MT and MHT lines. This joystick means you can control the whole of boom movements and machine drive forward and backward movements with one hand, leaving you free to keep the other on the steering wheel at all times for improved efficiency. The joystick itself is easier to operate than traditional models, with your hand coming to rest on top.
Powershift- Machines equipped with a Powershift gearbox continuously optimize engine torque so they are always in the best possible gear, thereby reducing fuel consumption. The comfort provided by these gearboxes allows users to stay focused on the handling task at hand, thereby reducing fatigue and offering greater safety.
Load Sensing Ultra (LSU)- The proud result of Manitou's vast experience and expertise, the Load Sensing Ultra (LSU) system is a hydraulic system made up of a variable flow pump which provides the flow and/or pressure required for any given application. This system gives you smooth, uniform simultaneous movements, as well as optimized speeds based on the load being handled.
Drawbar pull- Drawbar pull is an important point to consider when choosing a machine, particularly within the agricultural industry. If you frequently need to pull full or empty trailers, retrieve mired vehicles or simply need equipment to shift silage, manure, soil or snow, then you'll come to appreciate the power and drawbar pull available with your Manitou.
