For several years now, the European industries have abandoned the use of wheeled loaders and straight booms in their yard and replaced them with telehandlers offering much more productivity, thanks to the frontal reach, short turning radius, speed of movement and the versatility of the attachments. Just recently introduced to Canada, the integration of these models with increased visibility in our industries is just beginning.
The height of the boom largely facilitated handling of finished products by drastically decreasing the losses and damages; you will also be able to reach a load without moving obstacles placed in front. Furthermore, trucks are loaded 80 % faster because of the possibility to do it from a single side, with no capacity loss, and with single equipment. For some customers, the side shift (2') precision, with no capacity loss, will represent a major benefit for storage and loading trucks. With models with up to 26,000 lb capacity, Merlo offers a product range answering all the needs of the industry. Let's not forget to mention the possibility of snow removal and building maintenance.
