Merlo’s telehandlers
The first machines to benefit from Merlo's new modular approach on show at BAUMA
Italy’s Merlo Group unveiled the first three of its telehandlers to benefit from a new modular approach to construction: the P27.6, the P30.10 and the ROTO 45.35.

The group has invested over euro100m in the project that will see different machines assembled using a kit-of-parts approach. The benefit to customers should be increased quality, faster delivery time and a reduced number of spare parts to speed up maintenance and repairs.

The machines look quite different from their predecessors with a remodelled – and standardised – cab. Other features include Eco Power Drive to reduce fuel consumption; a simplified engine layout to aid maintenance; CANbus system; Tac-Lock system for safe and quick attachment changes; the suspended cab; and the Merlo Transversal Stability System (MTSS).

The ROTO 45.35 is a prototype and the first Merlo machine to have a hybrid engine. In electric mode it operates almost silently, for situations where noise is a sensitive issue. As yet, Merlo has not set a date for this model to go into production.
