@whindyLooking at a new forklift any body tried a brand new scorpion based on the liebherr. Heard the first ones were rubbish wondering if they’d improved much? Looking at about 3.5t 7m. Tried the merlo and was quite impressed
Hydrostatic now available in most Manitous now and JCB dualtec transmission is part hydrostatic.Drive two Claas machines, both fantastic. The newest one looks spectacularly good and the cab looks to have gained the good points from both earlier machines. Liebherr are really the Rolls Royce of machinery, if the hydraulic grunt is anything like the Kramer it will be some machine. Claas have the only machine that has come close to the driving precision and ease of a Merlo I have found.
Was the one you had an early one or one of the recent ones. There have been many software updates to resolve a lot of issues that were present in the early ones.Hydraulics are terrible, slow and cut out far too early. The boom suspensions to stupid system
I could go on
Yeah sorry topless partly my fault. Plenty manitou bashing threads he can join in on if he wants my help.Was the one you had an early one or one of the recent ones. There have been many software updates to resolve a lot of issues that were present in the early ones.
