Distributor Manitou Agriculture (AB Equipment) says the MLT 840-137’s capabilities “ideally suit New Zealand farm conditions.”
Power comes from a 137hp John Deere 4.5L engine (Tier 4-stage 3B) and a 180L/min. variable flow hydraulic pump. The cooling system controls fan speed automatically according to engine temperature, saving fuel and the environment.
Manitou’s JSM hydraulic controls speed the hydraulic operation by diverting oil to all functions simultaneously to provide a quicker and more responsive hydraulic operation, the company says. The JSM allows forward or reverse movement while doing multiple tasks in unison – safely and efficiently.
The machine’s new 5-speed M-Shift gearbox is smooth-changing in all situations. Power shift auto is standard.
Cab comfort is superb, Manitou says: “a machine that not only looks good internally and externally, but is intended for maximum operator well-being. The driving area [maximizes] productivity and comes with a pneumatic cloth seat, air conditioning, rear view mirror and a CD/ MP3 player.
Other features include an easy-connect hydraulic system, a radiator auto-cleaning system, a manual accelerator, and an interactive digital dashboard.
A large window area, lateral engine, low boom pivot and high seating position give 360 degrees visibility, guaranteeing safety of those inside and out.
