The Panoramic 50.18 has been specially designed for heavy handling.
This model's winning features are its high performance and the most compact dimensions available on the market, which amplify the renowned visibility of these ranges.
The range is equipped with the new modular chassis layout and the new cab, offering excellent performance in terms of visibility, safety and comfort.
The new construction concept allows you to customise the models according to operational needs, consequently offering the widest agricultural range with tailor-made solutions for the customer.
POINTS OF STRENGTH
Everything at your fingertips
Guarantees maximum movement precision, thanks to the hydrostatic transmission, which ensures millimetric variations in the machine's movements and load's positioning.
Compact and lightweight:
The Merlo telescopic handlers are compact and lightweight to reduce manoeuvring space and impact on the ground. These features guarantee safety, manoeuvrability, productivity and lower consumption.
Merlo telescopic handlers are designed to offer the best visibility on the market, ensuring faster and safer operations.
The tilt correction system, integrated into the chassis, is available as standard on this model. It allows the operator to offset the ground slopes to work in total safety. On sloping terrain the operator can correct the lateral inclination by 8%; this allows the telescopic boom to be moved out perpendicularly to work in conditions of maximum safety.
This model is equipped with the exclusive boom side-shift, a system integrated into the telescopic boom that allows the load to be positioned without further manoeuvring, consequently saving time, avoiding stress and improving the machine's productivity.
The system allows for a boom side-shift up to 880 mm.
The best workplace
Quiet and comfortable:
The new cab, of generous dimensions, is mounted on Silent Blocks, which drastically reduce vibrations, guaranteeing maximum comfort and maximum visibility for the operator.
Quick accessories changeover:
The Tac-Lock system for hydraulic clamping of the attachments further improves operating comfort.
Protection of the handled load:
The boom suspension system (BSS) is available as an option, which protects the load during transfer and maintains a high level of driving comfort on rough terrain.
Not just feelings
The Merlo integrated safety system controls the operating parameters in real time, allowing the operator to work in peace.
Certified cabs / Certified protection:
The Merlo cab is FOPS - Level II - and ROPS certified, to guarantee a high level of safety for the operator.
The exclusive new generation Merlo Dynamic Load Control (CDC) system automatically detects the type of attachment used, the machine's geometric configuration, the "boom extension and angle" and the handled load.
All information is displayed on the LCD screen, allowing the operator to use the telescopic handler simply and safely.
Simpler and smarter
Simple and precise operations:
The entire range is equipped with hydrostatic transmission, which makes the work phases simpler and more precise. Moreover, the dry disc brakes limit the absorption of energy, thereby reducing the machine’s fuel consumption.
The exclusive Eco Power Drive EPD technology automatically controls and adjusts the engine revolutions based on operating conditions. As a result, the engine speed is disconnected from the accelerator pedal. This technology achieves a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 18%. The TOP version Eco Power Drive can be used in the following modes: "Heavy Load", "Eco" and "Speed Control" that allow the performance to be adapted to the various operational requirements. It also includes the engine speed management function directly from the joystick.
