This year has seen incredible demand for plant and equipment hire. We have consistently added to our fleet across the board to meet our customers requirements. Eighteen months ago, we started adding Manitou MT625 Telehandlers to our fleet. It is a 6 metre machine that has become a very popular request amongst our clientele; the reliability and often remarked upon ‘drivability’ of this compact piece of kit has focused our attentions on the Manitou Product.
Due to the positive feed back on it’s smaller brother we have introduced the MT732, with a 7 metre reach and 3200kg of lift. Matched to an unusually high horsepower 101HP Engine and the patented JSM joy stick control with Proportional Thumb Rollers, it’s an incredibly user friendly machine to operate. Like all our new kit, the MT732 is a popular request and we eagerly await the feedback from our customers.
As with most investment decisions at SPH we evaluate Market/Customer acceptance, operator usability and Fuel Efficiency from our clients point of view and whole life Costs and Return on investment from a buisness angle, as far as we can see the Manitou ticks all these boxes.
