Manitou Lift

With a corporate history that dates back more than 60 years, they produce an extensive selection of telehandlers, aerial work platforms, truck mounted forklifts, and warehouse equipment. But 'extensive' doesn't really do their telehandler line justice. All-encompassing is more like it. Manitou currently manufactures 38 unique telehandlers, seven rotating telehandlers, and 33 masted forklift trucks - positioning themselves in a niche that's relatively narrow to begin with by offering highly specific construction telehandlers for a variety of heavy-duty applications.

Some of their popular models include:
