Leach Lewis launches Duco dumper Manitou builds on success with Selwood

Our September issue included an article on the first hirer to have added Manitou’s MT625T ultra-compact telehandler to its fleet. Now the manufacturer reports that Selwood has also bought a machine, from dealer Leach Lewis of Waltham Cross. It was quickly hired out to a building contractor, Karline of Exeter, for work involved in the construction of a new superstore in Exeter. The machine is being used for handling all the bricks,

blocks and mortar on the 20-week project in Exeter. As parts of the site have restricted access, the MT625T’s width of 1.82m and height of 1.92m enables it to operate in all areas of low headroom and narrow doorways. Building materials are stored inside the shell of the building, as there is no space outside, and this, plus the need to erect scaffolding inside the structure, makes users appreciate the machine’s tight turning circle, particularly when the site is busy. Selwood finds the MT625T easy to transport from site to

site, and says that its 5.85m maximum lift height and 3.4m forward reach enhances its versatility and hire potential. The machine has a two-speed hydrostatic transmission, and an inching function enables boom movements to be accelerated while gradually reducing forward speed. An innovative joystick control combines all handling functions, including the operation of the direction selector for forward/reverse or neutral drive.

Leach Lewis Plant has introduced the Duco micro dumper, which is 700mm wide and will drive through standard doorways. Selectable two and four wheel drive is incorporated, and power comes from a Honda four-stroke petrol engine giving a top speed of 4.6mph, with four forward speeds and reverse. A thumb-operated throttle lever enables full throttle control on the move without having to let go of the handles. Other hand controls include a forward/reverse lever, park brake release, clutch and skip tip lever. Maximum payload capacity is 300kg and the chassis is made from 3mm folded steel plate to provide a robust and rigid platform.

Well established in agriculture, Weidemann wheel loaders and telehandlers are also suited to the needs of the construction industry. Compact design characteristics and a tight turning circle means they can be operated in restricted work areas, and a broad range of original specifications and accessories enables users to tailor machines like the 2070 model, pictured, for a particular task, while maintaining the flexibility needed to undertake other activities as required.

Models in the Hoftrac series incorporate conventional steering allied with an articulated chassis. The new T4512 telehandler has a lifting height of 4.5m to the bucket pivot and is designed for excellent visibility and a small turning circle.
