As the long-awaited Electra Mining Africa trade show is set to take place again this year, Manitou will be returning to showcase their latest innovations in mining equipment as well as how they are ‘putting our customers at the centre of everything we do’ with extensive aftersales service and support.

“Our customer-centric approach with an increased focus on aftersales service and aftermarket offerings has helped Manitou achieve significant growth over the years”, says Darren Hall, Managing Director of Manitou Southern Africa.

Manitou’s customer focus at the exhibition will be complemented by recent machine and attachment innovations on display. Each has been tailored to reduce customer costs, achieved through increased machine versatility, resulting in faster operations, improved uptime and increased safety.

Amongst the machines on the Manitou stand, you will find mining specification 3,300kg and 9,000kg capacity telehandlers, a mining spec skid steer loader, a 16m articulated telescopic access platform as well as the MRT-X 2550 rotational telehandler with a 5,000kg capacity and 24.7m lifting height.

Manitou will also be launching a brand new telehandler within their heavy duty MHT-X telehandler range. This telehandler is the first of its kind to be launched on the African continent and it will be revealed on the Manitou stand at this year’s Electra Mining. With its heavy load capacity along with high boom reach, this versatile telehandler is the ideal solution for all types of maintenance and servicing. Added to this, it’s turning radius of 5.50m and high ground clearance of 4700mm allows this telescopic handler to manoeuvre easily on the mine site. Accessories such as tyre and cylinder handlers, jibs, winches, forks and personnel cages promise extreme versatility while ensuring ultimate safety of the operator and his environment.
