Star of Quick Fleet – Manitou M26-4

As Quick Reach continues to expand its fleet, the Manitou M26-4 has quickly become a customer favourite.  With impressive upgrades included in the rental price these Forklifts are, unsurprisingly, in high demand.


We have been working closely with Manitou and Mawsley Machinery to ensure our customers only receive the highest quality product.


Sam Sanderson from Mawsley Machinery explains the company’s close working relationship with Quick Reach and the benefits of the M26-4:


“Quick Reach has been a key account now with Mawsley Machinery Ltd now for over 9 years which we are very pleased to be able to share. We have supplied Manitou Access, Telehandlers and Rough Terrain Forklifts in large volumes over this time. The service back-up from us is often required nationally which is where we have geared our business up to handle these demands for all Key Accounts we deal with as back – up is paramount when purchasing any machinery.”


“One recent purchase has been a New Manitou M26-4 (2.6ton 4wd)Rough Terrain masted forklift, this is powered by a Stage V Emission compliant engine powering a 4-speed torque convertor transmission to all 4 wheels.  This makes this machine a very capable and popular model in lots of industries.  The machine also has a side shift carriage allowing loads to be easily and safely placed and loaded for the operator.  We have also added to this machine a spark arrestor and an electronic chalwyn valve for increased safety for its application in the fuel refinery where it will be working.  The M26-4 comes standard with a tracker, full telematics and a 2year / 2000hr warranty.  We are seeing demand for these masted machines grow now in the market-place.


Thank you again to all at Quick Reach for the business they place with Mawsley Machinery Ltd it is very much appreciated.”

Not only has this particular forklift been popular with our construction customers it has also been a real hit with our customers in the industrial sector.  We ensure that all the equipment we supply to industrial sites are ready for COMAH site specifications, the M26-4 being no exception. With additional safety upgrades such as the operator seatbelt warning sensor and innovative telematics its no surprise this forklift continues to impress.


Tom Baker reflects on the Forklift’s success for Quick Reach Industrial Services:


“The M26-4 all-terrain mast forklift is a staple product in the Oil and Gas sector. We have seen a huge demand for these across the industry. Quick Reach have recently invested in this product and the feedback from our clients across the UK and Scotland has been outstanding, people can not get enough of these with all our additional upgrades put on them.”


“All of the M26-4’s come with factory fitted chalwyn valve and spark arrestor to ensure we are COMAH ready. In addition to this, the mast forks come with a Stage V emission compliant engine, these are one of the most sustainable diesel engines currently fitted to plant machinery. We also fit a huge range of safety equipment to these to ensure we are setting new standards across the sectors we work in. Quick Reach work closely with manufactures like Manitou to constantly come up with new and innovating ideas all revolving around, safety, sustainability and increasing productivity.”


“I am sure to say on behalf of the group we will be working with Sam and the Mawsley Machinery team in the very near future.”
