Merlo redefines one more time the standards of performance in new masonry
03 July at 12:48PM
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.
- 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.
- 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)
