Merlo redefines one more time the standards of performance in new masonry

The privileged position of the standard telescopic lift in new masonry will change in the years to come because more  and  more  entrepreneurs  turn  toward  rotating  telescopic  such  as  those  proposed  by  the  Merlo  company. Companies into the restoration of masonry have already made the switch; especially in Eastern Canada where Merlo technology is available since 2004.

A  significant  increase  of  the  productivity  explains  this  choice,  especially  with  the  acquisition  of  hydraulic platform; increasing by more than 50% the productivity of the masons by imposing a faster cadence on workers supplying  the  material  to  higher  floors  (bricks  and  mortar).  In  a  situation  like  this,  a  standard  telehandler  has difficulties supplying, often requiring and additional worker only to operate the machine. 

The Merlo Roto fills this lack of productivity of traditional telescopics by offering several benefits which will revolutionize new masonry:  

  • Maximal Exploitation of Hydraulic Platforms
    • Its reach of 25 m (82') and its 4,080 kg (9,000 lb) lifting capacity allow faster and safer installation by offering a 100' work zone coverage without moving the machine.
    • For the masons, the supply and the safety on construction sites are increased by the continuous rotation ability which eliminates all repositioning movements of the machine (back and forth) requiring six times less spaces than regular loaders.
  • Remote Control (Radio Control)
    • Like several Merlo models, the Roto can be controlled from the outside the cab. The worker on the ground prepares brick and mortar and takes it to higher floors allowing  saving  of  an  additional  worker  (monthly  savings  from  $6,000  to $10,000).
    • Safety is increased with the remote control because it is possible to operate the machine directly from the material final destination allowing a better vision and higher precision than handling from the cab.
  • High Capacity Platform
    • Stretchable up to 4.9 m (16'), it allows more effective work than the hydraulic platform during building final cleaning since no beams have to be moved.
    • Alterations  can  be  done  quickly  thanks  to  its  speed  of  movement  and  no installation is required.
  • Variety of Attachments
    • The  Quick  Attach TM  system  with  automatic  hydraulic  Tack  Lock TM  allows changing the attachment (within the 90 offers by Merlo) without leaving the cab.
    • Masons use buckets to handle wastes on construction site.
    • The  jib  allows  delivering  in  height  (additional  16')  or  in  a  cavity  when  the project begins under the ground level.

"I use my Roto nearly 80% of the time, and I am autonomous even in higher project (5 to 9 floors) which makes every project more  profitable;  it's  the  best  return on  investment".           - Mario  Bourgeault,  Maçonnerie  Pro-Conseil, Montreal (Qc) 

"It was difficult to convinces us to buy our first Roto, but one year later, we had no choice but getting a second one. With all the benefits of this machine, we have seen all the saving and the increased productivity".          - Richard Leblanc, Briquetal, Quebec City (Qc)
