Over 90% of the Merlo telehandlers are manufactured in house by Merlo for Merlo. Merlo is the oldest telehandler manufacturer in the world, manufacturing them since 1981. Merlo has always focused on the following: Productivity, Safety, Operator Comfort, and Serviceability.
Consider Productivity. Merlo telehandlers operate quicker and smoother than many of the other telehandlers on the market, and have consistently shown to be more reliable.
Merlo’s heavy duty boom design is characterized by having almost no flex, the buttonhole design and large overlapping sections allow the boom to bend upwards when fully extended. Along with the smooth lift and reach capabilities, booms are designed for ground engagement. Which means our telehandlers can be used for digging, pushing and transporting a variety of materials. All Merlos are equipped with the correct hydraulics and electronics to accommodate any number of attachments such as buckets, man baskets, forks, jibs, winches and hoists, and you can add a tow hitch if desired. Then there is the hydrostatic transmission. It makes it possible for Merlos to offer smaller compact footprint, lighter machines with greater ground clearance, while still providing excellent performance and versatility on your jobsite.
Consider Safety. All Merlo telehandlers have integrated Overload Safety Protection systems as standard. This system stops our machines from tipping. This means, the load protection system locks the boom and sounds an alarm inside the cab before an operator gets to the tipping point, creating a bad situation. The boom needs to be retracted back to the safe operating zone before the machine will perform regular operations. Speaking of the boom, the electronics and hydraulic lines are safely enclosed within the boom. And there is the ‘ring of steel’ safety feature. An integral part of each machine’s engineering, it ensures overall machine balance, which in turn means a Merlo telehandler can have its compact footprint and still lift at a higher capacity.
Consider Operator Comfort. The cabs have always been the largest in their classes. They offer 360 degree view, courtesy of the side mounted engine and low pivot boom. This means an operator can look forward, left, right, to the rear and overhead. Merlo telehandlers offer more precise airflow controls for better ventilation. All the elements of the dashboard are placed for optimum operator ergonomics. The entire cab package ensures your operators perform at peek proficiency. A comfortable operator equals a more productive operator. A more productive operator means more efficient use of time.
Consider Serviceability. All the engine components of Merlo telehandlers are organized and laid out in a clear view which almost eliminates the need to reach behind the engine. Technicians like this feature. If getting behind an engine is necessary, there are strategically placed compartments to provide easy access. The panel at the back of the machine gives easy access to the boom assembly. Easier serviceability means less down time and more productive “up time” on the job.
