FLEXIBLE FRIEND: 'Ultra compact' is how Manitou describes the new MT 523, a machine with an overall width of 1.81 m and height of 1.99 m. Power comes from a 38.5 kW Perkins diesel engine.

Three steering modes, a 335 mm ground clearance and four steerable wheels allow it to cope with rough ground. Maximum capacity is 2,300 kg and lift height 4.92 m. The MT 523 can be equipped with a variety of attachments.
