Combining features of the MLT 634 and MLT 741 models it replaces, the new MLT 735 multi-purpose telehandler from Manitou North America additionally offers operators the patented JSM (joystick switch and move), a new joystick mounted on the armrest that serves as an ergonomic extension of the human arm. It is equipped with proportional roller switches for boom extension/retraction and auxiliary hydraulics, as well as a rocker switch controlling direction of travel. The load-sensing hydraulic system on the MLT 735 remains unchanged, providing infinitely progressive functions on all hydraulic functions. The newest addition to Manitou’s Evolution Series, the MLT 735 uses a 123-horsepower Perkins Tier-3 engine to generate lift capacity of 7,500 pounds, maximum lift height of 22 feet 6 inches and forward reach of 12 feet 9 inches.
