The “MR” series of heavy forklifts now includes a new model, with a rated capacity of 18000 kg at load centre 600 mm, in a COMPACT version.

Thanks to a width of just 2000 mm, an unparalleled turning radius and a length of 4225 mm, this forklift can move quickly in very tight spaces and navigate very narrow storage aisles.

Designed specifically for demanding applications, it is perfect for handling and storing heavy loads, both outdoors and indoors, in humid and dusty environments, thanks to its great compactness and manoeuvrability as well as its lifting and traction power, even when fitted with special equipment.

It is well suited to multiple customisable logistics solutions and is particularly recommended for flexible use in the metallurgical and steel industry; for heavy metal carpentry applications; in foundries; for metal and mechanical construction works; sheet metal and metal processing.

Spacious and easily accessible thanks to the handy steps, the operator’s cab has been designed to provide excellent visibility, even when handling the bulkiest loads.

In order to improve visibility, operator comfort and safety, the cab has been designed with full-glass as an option, to ensure an all-round view, thanks to the large windshield that extends from the front to the rear passing over the roof.

The drivers seat, together with all the main control devices, can rotate hydraulically up to 90° (optional), providing the operator with maximum comfort and visibility in all working conditions, also reducing the risk of occupational disorders.


MONTINI SUPER STEERING, the rear steering axle up to 101°, has been designed and built by MONTINI and is supplied as standard on the MR 18 COMPACT.

Thanks to the latest generation twin-motor traction, independently controlled in alternating current (AC), combined with an electronic differential and Super Steering, the MR 18 COMPACT is capable of working and moving in confined spaces, providing the operator with maximum manoeuvrability and guaranteeing the best driving experience.


Set up with battery 120V-1240Ah for handling long work shifts.

Changing the battery is quick and easy. It is carried out mechanically (standard), using a second forklift or pallet jack.
