Manitou has introduced the MT 5519 telescopic handler, now equipped with a Tier IV certified emissions compliant engine. The Tier IV certified MT 5519 is available in North American markets.

The model MT 5519 is powered by a 69 hp (51.5 kW) water-cooled Yanmar Tier IV certified diesel engine. A two-speed hydrostatic transmission, with inching valve, three selectable steering modes and a hydraulic system are all standard on the MT 5519.

The MT 5519 telescopic handler’s low-profile compact frame, with an overall height of 6.4 ft. (1.93 m) and tight turning radius of 11 ft. (3.35 m), means it can maneuver in low buildings and confined job sites. The low-profile boom reaches to a height of 19.1 ft. (5.8 m) and features the same welded box-section design that is on larger MT Series telescopic handlers.

The MT 5519 telescopic handler was designed to meet the growing needs of contractors, builders and rental companies for a 5,500 lb. (2,495 kg) lift capacity machine. By incorporating many of the features the MT series telescopic handlers, the new MT 5519 telescopic handler adds this machine in this growing market segment.

Internal wet disc service brakes are standard equipment along with a SAHR (Spring-Applied, Hydraulic-Release) parking brake, which is automatically applied when the engine is shut-off, or manually by pressing a rocker switch.

The view from the ROPS/FOPS canopy is a full 360 degrees. An enclosed cab is optional with front and top windows, a door and a heater and defroster for use in areas where operators need protection from the weather. Air conditioning also can be added to complete a climate controlled operator environment.

Two direct mechanical joystick controls for boom and fork tilt functions are standard. A deluxe suspension seat is optional. A work light package can be added.

The engine is accessible with a large, hinged hood on the side of the machine. The hood lifts fully out of the way, allowing room to access maintenance points, including the battery and oil fill. Underneath the unit, Manitou has added a bolted belly pan to protect all engine and hydraulic components. A hinged access door provides an easy entry to the engine oil drain.

Hydraulic flow up to 20 gpm (76 L/min) provides hydraulic performance. Optional auxiliary hydraulics power a variety of available attachments. Attachments include truss booms, jib booms, buckets and multiple types of carriages and forks. The Quick Carriage Release allows quick attachment changes with unsurpassed ease. The hydraulic hoses are routed inside the boom protecting them from jobsite hazards.

The Manitou MT 5519 telescopic handler is designed to meet the needs of rental companies and contractors in construction applications where space constraints exist. A high lift height and impressive load capacity allow the MT 5519 to perform a variety of material handling applications.

“In 2012, the compact telescopic handler market in North America was over 2,000 units or 15 percent of the total market,” said Steve Kiskunas, telescopic handler product manager of Manitou. “Rental, general construction and agriculture are the three most popular markets for these units. The MT 5519 provides a versatile four wheel drive, four wheel all-terrain platform that can be utilized in a variety of applications.”
