Online TCO calculator for Gehl and Mustang brands

Manitou Americas, Inc. has released a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) calculator for Gehl and Mustang product lines.

The TCO calculator(s) found on and are interactive tools that allows prospective customers and current equipment owners the ability to quickly calculate ownership costs over the lifecycle of a variety of products.
Total cost of ownership calculations help customers understand the direct and indirect costs of owning any Manitou, Gehl, or Mustang branded equipment. TCO involves several variables including acquisition price, fuel costs/fuel economy, maintenance (scheduled and unscheduled), insurance, training (operator and maintenance), and re-sale or residual value.

“Understanding these variables with the ability to quickly and easily calculate TCO, allows the customer to understand operational costs over the lifecycle of the machine. We're excited to launch the new TCO calculator tool to our current and prospective customers as well as our dealers," says David Harrison, director of after sales, Manitou Americas, Inc.

"Lowering the cost of ownership is a very important concept throughout the Manitou Group organization. It is very important for us to help our customers make informed buying decisions. The TCO calculator reinforces our commitment to reducing the total cost of ownership for our customers and our dealer network," Harrison says.

"The TCO calculators have been developed for use by our dealer network as well as our current and prospective customers to estimate the TCO in any industry, and any piece of equipment beyond those manufactured by Manitou Group," he adds. The calculator allows the user to customize his or her TCO estimation in real time, providing a custom report upon completion of a short questionnaire.
