Turbofarmer 50.8


New Merlo Heavy Duty range

The telehandler in agriculture according to Merlo

Merlo, the inventor of the telehandler and its application in agriculture, presents the new Heavy Duty range. We were the first to launch a range of telehandlers dedicated to agriculture in 1996.

Today, we proudly present the new generation developed on the strength of experience acquired in 50 years of operations.

  • Largest cab in its category
  • Suspended cab, a unique and patented solution
  • -18% consumption with standard EPD
  • Engines 122 HP without particulate filter and 156 HP*
  • Rear differential lock as standard

Engines & Transmissions

The Turbofarmer “Heavy duty” range is equipped with two Tier 4 Interim engines: 90 kW/122 and 115 kW/156 HP. As always Merlo telehandlers are equipped with hydrostatic transmissions for improved precision, safety
and ease of use.

Comfort record

The new cab was developed to ensure record-breaking comfort for our users. The air conditioning system is completely new and was developed based on automotive standards, halving the warm-up and cool-down times, guaranteeing an optimal temperature in all conditions.

Dynamic Load Control

The Merlo Group considers safety as an absolutely essential value and this is why it invented the M CDC system. The objective is to allow every operator to work in total safety by fully exploiting the potential of the telehandler and the attachment used.

Towing hooks & PTOs

The new Turbofarmer range takes this concept to even higher limits. As well as conventional handling, logistics and maintenance applications typical of telehandlers, the new Turbofarmers allow you to use them even for towing, thanks to the towing hook type-approved for 21 tons and the pneumatic and hydraulic trailer braking system.
