Gen3 - Attachments - Using Bucket Attachments On Manitou Machines


Manitou Australia has made the decision to not create rating charts for bucket attachments. The instruction from Manitou is for the operator to use the standard fork or machine rating charts when using a bucket attachment.

With a bucket attached and the standard fork attachment selected in the Gen3-LMS, the load reading will show slightly heavier since the Gen3-LMS has been calibrated based on the weight of the forks. However since the load is reading heavier, the Gen3-LMS still meets the requirements of the standards.
