The Merlo Group, founded in 1964 in Italy, has over 1,200 employees and the covered area of the Cuneo plants is around 220,000 square metres.Over 90% of production is exported all over the world through a commercial network divided into 7 subsidiaries and over 600 dealers. The Merlo Group is the market leader in telehandlers with rotating turret and in telehandlers with hydrostatic transmission.
The year 1987 was a key year in the company’s history; with the launch of the first telescopic handler in the world with side mounted engine and low hinged boom on the rear part of the chassis.
PANORAMIC XS also distinguished itself by being the only machine to offer complete visibility.
Further confirmation of Merlo’s dynamic innovation drive took the form of a new range of telescopic handlers with slewing boom, known as the ROTO range, the first machines ever to allow operators the possibility of reaching any point in the full 360° range, without having to re-position the machine.
The handlers of the Panoramic range are designed for the construction,agriculture and industry sectors and offer unique technical and technological features. They can be equipped with stabilizer feet to increase performance and with the innovative Merlo CDC (Dynamic Load Control) safety system which further increases the level of safety without reducing performance.
The Panoramic range is characterized by an enormous variety of models that range from compact machines (for those with space restrictions) to the high performance models to work in large building sites. The range includes about 30 models, capacities from 2500 to 12000 kg, lifting heights from 7 up to 18 meters.Thanks to the telehandlers of the Roto range, it is possible to operate 360° thanks to the rotating turret which provides a greater radius of action compared to a fixed telehandler.Today the Roto reach 30 meters of operating height and can lift 6 Tons. Thanks to the quality of construction, the performance and the safety, which have always characterized this range of products, the Merlo Group is the leader in the field of rotating turret handlers and Roto has become synonymous of this category worldwide.
All the merlo machine are capable to use different types of attachments (about 80 types) i.e.fork,crane,platform,grab and etc
