The MT625 is a compact machine with a 3.3-metre turning circle. It has a lift height of 5.85m and reach of 3.4m. Lift capacity is 2.5 tonnes. Maximum travel speed is 30km/h.

They were supplied to Fork Rent by dealer Mawsley Machinery of Brixworth in Northamptonshire.

Fork Rent managing director Guy Nicholls said: “It is the continuation of our working relationship with Manitou, we have enjoyed excellent utilisation and reliability from our fleet of Manitou powered access platforms over the last few years so it was a natural progression to purchase the Manitou compact telescopics.”

He continued: “The Manitou MT625 machines are a quality build and incorporate a lot of safety features as standard. We always look for the most modern machinery which combines the latest technology as the equipment needs to operate in fairly arduous applications and a robust design is essential with all the necessary protection for lights vital to reduce damage costs and maintain a good condition for second hand resale value. The Manitou compact MT625 meets all our criteria.

“From the hire company perspective the MT625T  is a good machine, easy to transport from site to site. The extra lift height for such a compact model and forward reach are ideal for attracting increased hire potential. The new Manitou MT625  is very user-friendly with an excellent interior cab layout and design”. 

Fork Rent selected the option of air conditioning in the cab.
