The solution for those who need multi-purpose and high-performance machines that are easy to use but are not afraid of demanding work. It is perfect for use in the forestry sector.
The wide range of attachments, the exclusive 360° visibility and the incredible manoeuvrability make it the ideal vehicle for quality-oriented professionals.
They are ideal for local authorities and administrations that are focused on productivity and service quality. The compact size enhances its use in confined spaces, while the performance is like that of a true purebred horse.
POINTS OF STRENGTH
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.
Countless hydraulically operated devices enable forest maintenance operations to be effective and profitable.
Shredders for the construction and maintenance of fire breaks as well as buffer zones for high-voltage power lines and gas pipelines; systems for the reclamation of stony areas; extractors for removing plant roots after cutting; chippers for shredding biomass timber; equipment for preparing soil and reconditioning land; hedge cutters for cleaning road quays and pruning plants, in addition to many other attachments that are rich in advanced technologies.
All attachments can be equipped with quick-coupling hydraulic connectors.
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.
The driver's seat is at an elevated position to offer better visibility over the work area. The high-quality seat offers superior comfort.
Not just feelings
The steel structure of the tool-carrying tractors is the indestructible frame on which a highly technological work system is built. The chassis, reinforced with a high-resistance protective reinforcement over the most exposed areas, amplifies the concept of rigidity and strength, thanks to the exclusive torsion-resistant design: the result is a range of particularly efficient and sturdy machines for all applications, especially the most demanding ones.
Certified cabs / Certified protection - Anti-break glass:
The Merlo cab is FOPS - Level II - and ROPS certified with approved anti-break glass to guarantee a high level of safety for the operator.
This model has been designed for the best performance in the most demanding work areas. Headlights, air inlets, radiators, electrical wiring and hydraulic pipes can be protected with special steel guards.
Everything at your fingertips
The four driving wheels are all steered with hydraulic power assistance. Four steering modes are available (on the front wheels, pivot steering, crab steering and - optionally - on the rear wheels only).
The hydraulic operation of the attachment offers innumerable competitive advantages compared to traditional systems that use mechanical devices. The attachment in use can work in positions that go beyond the maximum angles allowed by the cardan shafts; there are no mechanical parts subject to breakage and, as a result, any recoil of the kinematic chain is excluded. Furthermore, the operator can reverse the attachment's rotation direction through a simple electro-hydraulic control in the cab.
A radio-controlled hydraulic winch that can be set up at the rear of the chassis.
The capacities vary from 7.5 to 12 tonnes depending on the models.
The high ground clearance makes it possible to operate even in extreme off-road conditions, making this model powerful and versatile.
