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.
