The Manitou Group earned the Equipment and Material prize in the Components and Attachments category at the Intermat Innovation Awards. This distinction recognizes the group for its patented machine stabilization system for the MRT 2470 and MRT 3050 models. The prizes were handed out at the pre-Intermat event in Paris.

The jury, made up of 14 professionals from seven different countries, championed the strain gauge system of the MRT 2470 and MRT 3050, which measures the strain on the stabilizers' axes.

This recognition system improves reading the information regarding the strain applied to the ground, and automatically modifies the load capacity of the machine. This allows the user to identify on the dashboard the pressure of the stabilizers on the ground and their range of expansion, which also contributes to increasing its safety.

"We are always looking to optimize our users' experience. Thanks to this new system, developed and patented by Manitou, handling operations are more precise and safer, which allows our clients to considerably increase their productivity. Awarded by a panel of experts in construction and infrastructure, this prize makes the group proud. It acknowledges, recognizes and highlights the research and  development work we have undertaken  for several  years," said  Arnaud  Boyer, VP Marketing and Product Development.
