Manitou’s new boom tip hook

Manitou had added an optional lifting hook to its MT Series of telescopic handler models.

The lift hook, available only on select lines, is mounted on the telescopic handler boom tip allowing users to place loads with or without the standard fork carriage attached to the machine. The hook offers the same lift capacity and load zone ranges as the standard fork and carriage and can be installed in the field by replacing only one pin.

“Designed to function with or without the fork carriage attached to the machine, the Manitou boom tip lift hook provides a secure attachment point for operating with suspended loads,” said Steve Kiskunas, telescopic handler product manager – Manitou Americas.

The boom tip lift hook option is now available as a factory-installed option or field installed option for the Manitou MT 6642, MT 8044, MT 10044, MT 10055 and MT 12042 model telescopic handlers.

The hook option is also available on sister-brand Gehl's RS6-42, RS8-42, RS8-44, RS10-44, RS10-55 and RS12-42 model telescopic handlers.
