Starting in January 2014, Manitou Group will begin equipping its 6- to 7-m telehandlers with a multi-function grab bucket and Deutz engines, starting with model series TCD 3.6, designed specifically for use in agricultural equipment. As a result of its compact engine design as well as a modular system of optional attachments, the water-cooled four-cylinder series engine with peak capacity ranging from 55.4 to 90 kW at 2300 rpm rated speed will reduce installation costs for customers, according to the companies. TCD 3.6 series engines are equipped with a modular exhaust gas aftertreatment system that can be attached to the engine as an option, simplifying device integration by allowing for a drop-in installation of the entire system. The TCD 3.6 comes with a charge air cooler and needs only an oxidation catalyst to meet the requirements of EU 3B and U.S. EPA Tier 4I emissions standards. With its brands Manitou, Gehl, Mustang, Edge, and Loc, the family-owned Manitou Group, based in West-French Ancenis, offers agricultural, construction, and all-terrain industrial handling equipment. Production includes telehandlers, rough terrain forklift-trucks, and truck-mounted forklifts, as well as aerial work platforms. Established in 1953, Manitou also has a German subsidiary, Manitou Deutschland GmbH located in Ober-Mörlen, Hessen.
