The Western Festival of St-Tite is a reference regarding professional rodeo and country-western atmosphere. Manulift was proud to join them for this 43 rd edition.

On Friday, September 10 th , during the event Horse Pulling Manulift, a Turbofarmer 40.7 assured the handling of the sled and the weights (concrete blocks of 1,000 pounds). First place went to:

  • Less than 3,400 pounds category:
    • David Binns
    • 10,000 pounds pulled
  • More than 3,400 pounds category:
    • Michel Chauvette
    • 12,000 pounds pulled

This event was a considerable demonstration of power; as animal as mechanical, because Merlo is the only telescopic with a real pulling capacity (thanks to its class 1 hydrostatic transmission and the anti- torsion steel belt).

Besides this event, Manulift lent a Merlo Compact 32.6 to the festival for the assembly and the dismantling of the various installations. The same comment came back ceaselessly; they tested all sorts of equipment during the last 43 years, but nothing gets close to a Merlo telehandler! Ease of driving, speed of execution, suppleness, power, robustness and multiple applications were the words used by people of the festival to describe their "Merlo experience".



« We had only one problem: establish a fair schedule because all our teams wanted to work with the Merlo! » Martine Pelletier, St-Tite Western Festival.

With its green lime color, the Merlo was easy to see in the arena but was noticed for its power and agility, not only for its bright color.

Manulift EMI, with branches in Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City, is a Canadian importer of the Merlo products. Manulift EMI is proud to offer these innovative telehandler products to Canadian entrepreneurs.

The high demand for the Merlo product is clear with more than 700 units sold in Canada in the last six years. Merlo is the telehandler world leader with pure innovation since 40 years. With 28 units produced every day, Merlo is the most demanded telehandler brand worldwide.
