Manitou is proud to announce the launch of their new NewAg XL range with a new agricultural telehandler model dedicated to intensive applications. This model offers the user a very competitive total cost of ownership (TCO).
The NewAg XL model, the MLT-X 841, with a capacity of 4.1 t and a lifting height of 7.60m, is dedicated to intensive applications with usage of more than 1,300 hours per year and is aimed primarily at large farms (polyculture, cereal crops, biogas), agricultural contractors, cooperatives and agri-businesses. The NewAg XL range is designed to offer even more comfort, performance and profitability.
A very high level of comfort
To reduce the noise and vibration levels experienced during intensive operations, the MLT-X 841 is equipped with one of the quietest cabins on the market. Comparable to those of high range tractors, this cabin reduces these levels to just 69 dBA. Arnaud Sochas, telehandler products range manager for the Manitou Group, explains: “Our aim first and foremost is to safeguard the health of our users, while at the same time providing them with powerful, profitable machines. Thanks to excellent soundproofing, farmers can work for long hours without experiencing fatigue linked to the noise of their machine, and so remain focused on their activity.”
The monobloc windshield of the MLT-X 841 is covered by a roof grille with tilted blades, providing excellent visibility throughout the load lifting operation. Among other innovations, LED lighting is activated automatically every time the door is opened to light up the Easy-step, ensuring safe and easy access to the driver’s cabin both day and night. Plenty of storage space inside the cabin adds to the comfort offered by this new NewAg XL range.
This torque gain helps to improve the towing and loading performance even more. With torque converter transmission with automatic Powershift gearbox and hydraulic flow of 200 l/min, the benefits offered by these models assure farmers of optimal productivity. To ensure an uninterrupted, intensive day’s work, the tank capacity has been increased by 13%. Numerous options have been added to the array of equipment: the High View camera, which allows the operator to view the inside of the trailer when loading and the Active CRC boom suspension, which reduces jolting when driving with a load. Also included are Manitou innovations such as the Comfort Steering System with variable assist steering, which reduces the number of steering wheel turns by 40%, the Intelligent Hydraulics package (bucket shaker, return to load position and combined telescopic boom movements). A whole range of innovations to benefit the user.
A reduced TCO for better profitability
The NewAg XL MLT-X 841 offers a very competitive TCO. Numerous developments promote easier maintenance. Access to the components is easier: two-part opening of the cover, centralized greasing points, rapid-opening cleaning hatch in front of the radiator. To reduce maintenance costs, the self-cleaning air pre-filter is now integrated above the engine compartment and the hydraulic oil maintenance intervals are set at 2,000 hours. This NewAg XL range comes standard with Easy Manager connectivity and is particularly beneficial for users: real-time monitoring of the location of their machine, its fuel consumption, and notifications shared with their dealer to anticipate their maintenance requirements. To increase the reduction in TCO, options such as the automatic greasing system are also available.
A new level of finish, PLATINUM*, superior to the Classic, Premium and Elite levels, is now offered to customers with high requirements for comfort, performance and profitability. This finish includes all the options mentioned:
