Manitou's highest-reaching articulated MEWP for North America
Manitou has introduced a new 60-foot articulated boom lift to North America. The ATJ 60 MEWP is Manitou's highest-reaching articulated aerial work platform and complies with new ANSI/CSA standards.
The ATJ 60 has a platform height of 59 feet 11 inches, an up-and-over reach of 26 feet 3 inches and horizontal outreach of 39 feet 4 inches. It comes standard with four-wheel drive, rough-terrain tires, 17 inches of ground clearance and a 500-pound platform capacity. It is powered by a Kubota 42.9-hp diesel engine and has a front oscillating axle for added power.
The turret on this MEWP rotates 360 degrees and, with constant rotational control, the platform rotation speed varies according to how far the boom is extended. This MEWP can make four simultaneous movements, including platform direction, machine rotation and lifting the boom. It has four-wheel, two-wheel and crab steering modes.
A self-diagnostic panel at ground level can quickly detect and relay fault codes. With Manitou's EasyMANAGER telematics system, fleet managers can track the unit's location, maintenance cycles and service warnings.
"The addition of the ATJ 60 to the Manitou product family allows operators to address the majority of applications required on today's jobsite," said Mike Sover, North America product marketing manager for MEWPs, Manitou Group. "This model is the highest-reaching articulated platform we offer in North America and it's designed to maneuver on the toughest jobsites."
The ATJ 60 brings Manitou's North American MEWP lineup to four articulated diesel, two articulated electric and four straight-boom diesel models.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
