"I didn't think there was a machine out there that could replace my skid steer for pushing out the poultry barn and we can load the end dump in one step".
We we able to increase the storage in our hay shed by 25% and the Merlo pushes as well as a tracked skid steer.
I didn't think it would really perform like a tractor but it does. We were able to handle 4 bales at a time with my bale shredder.
There are all sorts of tasks that are made easier by utilizing the Merlo. It is great for towing equipment around the yard
Merlo is the only machine we know of that has a PTO and can place bales up to 30 feet.
I can't imagine going back to a tractor to do my chores around the farm - as a cattle rancher moving to a telehandler has cut my chore time in half.
