Merlo Group’s mission is to meet its customers’ needs, while ensuring safety. For this reason, it has developed several unique and patented technologies which have made Merlo telehandlers technology one of the leaders in their market sector.
Operator safety has always been the most important aspect of the design of Merlo vehicles. The primary protective element for those who use our telehandlers is the structure of the Merlo cab, which is certified according to the ISO 3449 FOPS Level II and ISO 3471 ROPS standards, and guarantees the best protection rating in its class. A protection grille is mounted on the windscreen to safeguard from a potential fall of the handled materials, hence increasing safety of the cab during the most demanding operations. Furthermore, the latter is also equipped with a fire extinguisher. The cab is pressurised and equipped with an activated carbon filter that improves the quality of the air sucked in thanks to a HEPA-level filter capacity preventing the entry of contaminants.
The design of Merlo telehandlers offers unique 360° visibility, increasing the safety, accuracy and productivity of the vehicle. To ensure these features even at night or in poorly lit environments, the Waste Manager configuration includes 11 LED headlights that illuminate the entire perimeter of the telehandler.
Waste Manager models are also equipped with a broadband alarm that signals when the machine is reversing. Its sound is less sharp but more directional and clear than the traditional reversing signal present on the rest of the range, thus guaranteeing the safety of ground personnel and operational comfort.
