Manitou Group has launched the next generation of compact rough-terrain forklifts with the brand new MC 25-4 and MC 30-4 models. These two models create a bridge between the indoor industrial style (ME/MI) and the true rough terrain forklifts (M series) in both size and performance.

This versatile forklift can be used for handling pallets in both indoor and outdoor applications such as fruit and vegetable production, for nurseries, oyster farming, events and much more.

"Replacing the successful MH25-4T model in the Manitou range, the ALL NEW MC 25-4 brings performance, visibility and operator comfort to a new level," said Brian Rabe, North American product marketing and training manager, Manitou Group. "The innovative panoramic glass roof and redesigned mast offering improves visibility. Standard selectable 4wd/2wd and new chassis improve performance. Reduced total cost of ownership and larger operator station are all key improvements rooted in Manitou's DNA."
