Merlo was the first company on the market to translate the concept of a telescopic boom tractor into reality and to patent it: the Multifarmer. It is a real crossover, which combines the characteristics of a traditional agricultural telescopic handler with those of a tractor, producing truly exciting results. The result is a range that offers high-performance vehicles, all equipped with a 3-point rear linkage and mechanical power take-off.
The MF44.9 CS-170-CVTRONIC model represent the revolutionary Merlo solution for performing all farm work: handling, lifting, transporting loads and operating attachments with a high level of performance for operations typically carried out by traditional tractors (towing and tillage).
The Telescopic Tractors are also equipped with the anti-tipping ASCS (Adaptive Stability Control System) system and engines managed by the EPD Plus (Eco Power Drive) with auto-revving joystick, which allows for a reduction in diesel consumption.
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 Merlo CVTronic intelligent continuous transmission combines the Merlo experience, acquired on hydrostatic transmissions, with new technical solutions that allow it to reach the same performances, consumption and yields of a traditional CVT transmission.
The tilt correction system, integrated into the chassis, is available as standard on this model. It allows the operator to offset the ground slopes by 8%. This allows the telescopic boom to be moved out perpendicularly to work in conditions of maximum safety.
Power take-off (PTO):
The Telescopic Tractors are equipped with a mechanical power take-off as standard that, in combination with the 3-point rear linkage, allows mounted and trailed attachments to be connected.
3-point linkage: cat III
This model is equipped as standard with a category III 3-point rear linkage with a 7,000 kg lifting capacity.
The best workplace
Quiet and comfortable:
The new cab, of generous dimensions (1.010 mm), 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.
Air Conditioning System:
The air flow is distributed homogeneously within the passenger compartment and optimally reaches all areas for first-class comfort.
Exclusive comfort / The most comfortable cab:
This model is equipped with the exclusive patented and dampened Merlo CS cab with active hydropneumatic suspension that can be switched off directly by the operator. The low frequency system allows the drastic reduction of vibrations inside the passenger compartment and facilitates the absorption of the stress and vibrations transmitted during the transfer and work phases, even on uneven ground.
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.
Everything under control:
This model is equipped with the exclusive new generation ASCS (Adaptive Stability Control System) safety system. The ASCS checks the safety parameters of the telescopic handler in real time and allows the operator to work in total safety, making the most of the telescopic handler's potential and the attachment used.
