Reason 2 – Optimum Control
Optimum Control Intuitive handling
The MRT Privilege is simple to drive and control. You manipulate your load with precision thanks to the two electro-hydraulic joysticks fitted to the armrests. The joysticks are always within reach regardless of seat position.
Storage of maximum movement speeds
According to the working situation and the type of work, you are able to store the maximum movement speeds of all activating parts of the jib. You store up to four sets of parameters: this allows you to maintain the safety of your movements.
Machine operation made easier
You can operate your MRT Privilege in complete confidence.Each joystick is equipped with a positive action position. All risk of involuntary movement is eliminated. The forward and reverse control is integrated with the right-hand joystick: you hands do not leave the wheel.
Remote control (optional)
You can control the machine from a distance as if you were in the cabin. You thus benefit from excellent visibility over your working environment. The remote control has a control screen which shows the state of the machine. This control unit can equally be used by you to work with your machine in platform mode.
The spacious MRT Privilege cab offers a comfortable control position with features such as a self-cleaning step, wide door for easier access, clear comprehensive dashboard and electric windows. There is plenty of room for personal belongings, documents, in the many large compartments provided in the cab. The cab can be adapted to your needs thanks to the adjustable height and angle of the steering wheel and adjustable, height and depth of the seat. The tilting seat* guarantees a clear view of the load without sacrificing comfort.
The contoured design of the windscreen provide a panoramic view through the upper part of the cab.Front, rear and roof wipers are fitted as standard for optimum visibility in wet weather.
The camera guarantees the safety without compromise of the closest manoeuvres and allows you to work “blind”. Lateral and rear cameras are also available to provide safety for your movements on site. They transmit directly to the main screen on the on-board control panel.
Automatic parking brake
The battery-powered automatic parking brake provides safety for your manoeuvres on all
Safety and comfort
Boom suspension* enhances on-road comfort and makes load shifting operations safer on rough ground.
Precision movements for perfect control of your handling operations. The pentagonal cross-section makes the telescopic boom more rigid and ensures that the components are guided perfectly. Lateral oscillation is considerably reduced.
Reason 3 – complete stability
Quick to position
Deploy the stabilizers simultaneously or individually at the simple flick of a switch in the cab. To reposition the machine on the site, simply raise the scissor system and move. Increased efficiency.
Modular stabilization surface
The stabilizers have a telescopic scissor design enabling the legs to be just partly deployed when obstacles are present or there is a lack of space. The machine’s capacities are automatically adjusted in this configuration.
Enjoy excellent stability on all terrain. The scissor stabilizers form a square when fully deployed. This guarantees uniform stability irrespective of turret position. The pads have a large bearing surface - no need for additional chocks. You save a considerable amount of time.
This item of equipment allows the driver to apply selectively one or more stabilisers. The calculator thus automatically chooses the charge weight which is most appropriate.
Tackle rough or sloping terrain with ease. Simply push a lever to keep your load horizontal. The state of the terrain is no longer a concern.
Total safety on wheels
The MRT Privilege is equipped with an automatic oscillating rear axle lock-out device. When the machine is standing on its wheels, if the turret is slewed by more than 7.5°, rear axle oscillation is locked out. You can work in total safety and retain maximum capacity.
Lift your stabilizers in total confidence. When the pads are retracted, they are automatically integrated into the machine’s body. No loss of ground clearance. The cylinders are fully protected.
Reason 4 – Power and precision
Transmission and traction
Safe operation on all terrain. The 4-wheel drive and oscillating rear axle provide optimum ground adhesion.
The hydrostatic transmission coupled to a two speed gearbox allows you to adapt your speed and
tractive force. This system offers precise gradual operation for load placement. Handling is smooth. Power is transmitted to the wheels via heavy duty steering axles, equipped with epicyclic gears.
Safe, reliable braking
Stop your machine precisely in all circumstances with the oil-bath multiple-disc brakes integrated into
the axles. The braking capacity is balanced between the four wheels for maximum efficiency. A negative action hydraulic parking brake is also incorporated and stops the machine under all circumstances.
This standard item allows you to reduce significantly the consumption of fuel during movements: the engine system adapts itself automatically to the needs of the transmission
The MRT Privilege can be optionally equipped with a dual-energy system. By adopting this solution, all operations previously limited by pollution and noise emissions from the diesel engine can now
be performed, even inside buildings. To take advantage of the dual-energy system, the machine must firstly be stabilized and coupled up to an external electrical supply source. The operator can then perform all handling operations from the cab or with the radio-control. The operator can also benefit from the dual energy mode from the platform basket.
Reason 5 – Total safety
This program displays the state of the machine on the screen. In the event of a problem, this device switches to safe state and prevents all movements. The faulty component is displayed on the screen in order to minimize machine downtime.
Chain tension balancer
A feature to enhance the reliability and safety of your machine. With the balancing system, the tension is split equally between the chains. A hard-wired sensor system checks the state of the chains permanently. You can work in total safety.
Control of the state of load
The MRT Privilege is fitted with the Manitou Safety System. It analyses continuously the position of your load within the working envelope, and the machine’s work configuration. The system restricts the working area according to the accessory and the load being handled. You can be sure that there is no risk of overload on your machine or its accessory.
Restrictive working zone
To ensure the safety of your repeated handling movements in congested sites, you can limit the working zone, thereby increasing safety.
Reason 6 – Simplified Maintenance
Simplified access to the principal components
Maintain your machine with ease. The engine positioned to the side of the chassis allows easy access from three sides. The air filter and battery are accessible through a hood at the rear of the chassis.
Optimized boom design
The use of high-strength alloy steel makes the boom both light and solid. Irrespective of whether they
are hydraulically or chain-operated, the booms are designed to facilitate and minimize maintenance.
External hydraulic hoses
Make the most of fast support times and low costs. As the hoses are on the outside of the boom, they are quicker to access for maintenance.
Electric circuit protection
Work for longer in all weathers. The entire electrical installation and all components (printed circuit boards, fuse boxes and connections) are rated IP67, ensuring that they are dust free and watertight.
