In 2000, Merlo invented the most versatile tool: the Multifarmer, a perfect fusion between traditional tractors and telehandlers. Today, the Multifarmer is equipped with a 110 hp P.T.O., a category III three- point linkage with a capacity up to 9,500 lb and a 120 hp engine. Thanks to its telescopic boom, you will enjoy all the benefits of the frontal reach which makes loading in dump trucks and/or mixers easier and maximizes your storage space in terms of height. The Multifarmer is also an incomparable tool for handling bulk products and building maintenance. In addition, it can activate a grain screw, power generator or be used for field works. With all the benefits of the frontal reach, it's no wonder 70 % of European farms replaced their 120 hp tractor with a telehandler. The same movement is progressing in Canada since the introduction of Merlo in 2004, in the agricultural market, as well as in municipalities, where it can replace up to three machines.
