Feb 11, 2018 Warehousing Ireland Materials Handling, News Comments Off on Manitou MC18 forklift: Greater visibility & less noise nuisance
The Manitou group, global leader in all-terrain material handling is displaying the newly launched MC18c with an overall width of 1450 mm and a height of less than 2 m on its “Buggy” version, the MC18 truck offers the user optimum visibility during handling operations thanks to a new panoramic glazed roof without a metal structure. This is composed of two tempered glass sheets separated by a plastic film (creating laminated glass). This combination ensures that the operator is protected from falling objects, meeting the requirement of ISO 6055 (FOPS) safety standards. This innovation allows the load to be monitored throughout the whole lifting operation. To provide users with even more comfort, the “double-skin” cover consists of a tough, rigid section and a flexible insulated section, ensuring that noise nuisance is reduced. With only 79 dB in the cabin while running, the operator works in optimal conditions, whereas the market average is 86 dB.
The MC18 delivers a ground clearance of 30 cm, the highest on the compact truck market. This development gives it greater versatility on all types of ground, and makes obstacle clearance significantly easier. The floor height, accessible without steps, is retained thanks to optimization of the machine’s transmission components and allows the operator to enter and exit the cab effortlessly.
The MC18-4 offers the option of switching from 2-wheel to 4-wheel drive, whether the machine is in operation or not. The 4-wheel drive mode gives the MC18 improved driveability and traction, so it is easier to make difficult crossings. By switching to 2-wheel drive, the operator can reach a speed of 25 km/h and increase productivity gains. This means that fuel consumption is reduced by 12.5% in the handling cycle optimizing the TCO of this machine.
This model has been designed to make it easy to access the engine via a cap located just behind the operator’s seat. The user can check the various levels without needing to lift up the cab or have special tools.

An ever-lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of machines
The new MC18 was conceived and designed to reduce the total cost of ownership. Its compact 26.5 kW engine optimizes its fuel consumption. Consuming 3.5 l/h, the MC18 is the most energy-efficient compact rough-terrain forklift on the market. Thanks to an optimized preventive maintenance, the interval between hydraulic oil changes has been greatly extended. With a TCO between 15% and 20% lower than the competition, the 4-wheel drive version of the MC18 forklift shows a low total cost of ownership. the lowest for rough-terrain forklift. All these innovations allow the MC18 to benefit from a high residual value.
“The MC18 is an ideal machine where a compact machine is required that can easily manoeuvre in obstructed and crowded spaces and still has an essential high ground clearance. In addition where noise levels are problematic in urban construction sites, the MC18 is a perfect solution provider as the machine is extremely quiet when in operation (only 79dB). The MC18 has got the stamp of Manito’s DNA: High ground clearance, driving power and robustness and the Total Cost of Ownership of the machine is the lowest on the rough terrain market”.
