Manitou announced that the manufacturer is offering E-Reco, as standard, on its new-generation ranges of rotative telescopic trucks MRT EASY and MRT PRIVILEGE +. These units were recently presented at BAUMA last April.

The attachment-recognition system uses RFID radio-identification technology. This autonomous technique can recover and record operating data remotely. The machine detects the attachment at the head of the boom, analyses its data and directly proposes the corresponding working configuration.

This technology provides the load chart in real time, taking into account the rotation angle of the turret and the position of the machine's stabilizers, in accordance with the standard relative to mobile cranes.

"Simple and intuitive, it lets all MRT users work easily while making best use of the machine's potential. The automatic calculation of the load chart, adapted to the attachment in place, safely optimizes the use of the rotative telescopic truck", says Olivier Vasseur, Product Line Manager Attachments.

The ranges of attachments that are not equipped with the attachment-recognition system can benefit from this technology simply by adapting RFID kits.

All attachments offered by Manitou follow a complete process of validation (structural calculation, hydraulic and thermal assessment, analysis of risks and load chart) to ensure maximum safety for the user and an optimized machine/attachment pair.
