Manitou introduces the beast and the king
The new compact loaders are said to be very strong
New compact loaders from Manitou have been dubbed 'the beast' and 'the king'.
The V400 Gehl and 4000V Mustang models are billed as the strongest compact loaders in the world. The compact loaders are aimed at a broad range of uses including construction, local authorities and highways.
They have a nominal capacity of 1.8tonnes, a lifting height of 3.65m and a breakout force of 4,150tonnes. The net power is 99hp at 2,200rpm and the maximum torque is 442Nm at 1,300rpm.
Their high-pressure hydraulic system enables use of a large number of accessories, said Manitou. The operator can control the flow to optimise the performance of the machine.
The loaders have been designed for comfort and manoeuvrability, and they have been given a robust structure.
