Manitou Australia hunts for oldest machine in Oceania
Manitou Australia is urging dealers with old Manitou machinery to enter its "Find the Oldest Manitou" competition.

Since inventing the first rough terrain forklift in 1958, Manitou has always been at the forefront of materials handling in Oceania with its first machines imported in the early 1970s.

To celebrate the past and look forward to the future, Manitou Australia is holding a competition to hunt down the oldest Manitou in the Oceania region.

Manitou dealers who might have what the company is searching for are urged to submit a photo and serial number of their machine to Manitou Australia through the competition’s website.

Entry closes September 30 2013.
