New range of scissor lifts from Manitou

Manitou has launched a new range of scissor lifts. It currently includes two models, the SE 0808 and SE 1008, with working heights of 8 m and 10 m respectively. The range is planned to be extended later this year to include a 12-m model (SE 1212).

“All three models benefit from Manitou’s renowned quality standards. We have big ambitions in the scissor market, where demand is very strong. As a reminder, industrial ‘scissor’ models account for nearly 60% of the global aerial work platform market,” said Samuel Viaud, product manager for Manitou Group’s scissor lift range.

Designed to offer a low cost of ownership, the three models feature high-quality components, shared Manitou. The machines are equipped with two AC motors, which are maintenance-free, greatly reducing servicing costs.

The new scissor lifts can operate on flat, stabilised ground, both indoors and outdoors. They are suitable for a wide variety of applications, including industrial maintenance and finishing work (electrical, plumbing, installation of fire protection systems, etc).

This range has also been designed for ease of use, thanks to a streamlined, intuitive control panel. A full-height gate and two handles attached to the machine ensure safe ascent and descent. The operator further benefits from an extendable sliding floor and an extra 90 cm of space, giving a total basket length of 2.54 m.

To facilitate communication between the machine and the operator or technician, this connected range features integrated diagnostics and a colour screen that provides information on safety, battery consumption and maintenance. In addition, the machines are fitted with side sheaths that allow them to be moved quickly, enabling safe loading and unloading of trucks.

According to Manitou, these new models will be delivered throughout Europe from April 2024 onwards via the group’s dealer network. The range will evolve by 2025, with distribution extending beyond Europe.
