MERLO ADDS ‘PLUS’ FACTOR TO TELEHANDLER RANGE – shorthand for a number of special features now being fitted as standard within the price package. In one version, these include a joystick (compared to levers), 40kph speed (compared to 35kph) and an engine increased to 101hp (compared to 75hp).
Distributed here by McHale Plant Sales of Birdhill, the Merlo range comprises thirty-eight machines in all – with maximum load capacities from 2.5 to 12-tonnes and lift heights from 5.9 to 29.5-metres (depending on model choice) – giving them a presence in every market segment. Popular is the Panoramic range which includes six models bearing the ‘plus’ designation.
Designed for construction and industrial use, the Merlo line-up spans the spectrum from the compact 25.6L (with its 5.9m lift and 2-tonnes load capacity) to the large, robust 40.26 MCSS construction-ready Roto unit. Merlo’s heavy-duty Roto range comprises 14 units with lift heights from 13.9m to 26m and operating capacities from 3.8 to 6-tonnes.
Powered by new 75hp Tier 3 and 101hp Tier 4 engines – the latter fitted with diesel oxidation catalyst and electronic gas recirculation with no diesel particulate filter requirement – models come with hydraulic independent stabilizers, automatic attachment recognition and rapid attachment coupling features.
Additional elements include a tilting angle corrector, boom side shift movement, remote operator control capability, cab tilt feature and 2-speed hydrostatic transmission. Standard also is Merlo’s patented dynamic load control that sets permissible load parameters. A FOPS/ROPS compliant cab is the largest on the market.
Infinitely adaptable, units can be fitted with a variety of attachments that expand their value to owners, as films on Merlo’s You Tube platform demonstrate. Uses include high-rise work platform elevation, ground excavation and bucket loading, forklift and high-rise crane operation.
Painted in their luminous high-visibility, apple green livery, machines have an easy-to-see, stand-out attractiveness that many say makes them doubly safe on building sites and in busy open space and warehouses use.
