Merlo has debuted a new panoramic telehandler, the P50.18Plus. The unit features a lift height of 58 feet, 5 inches, a reach of 44 feet and a capacity of 11,000 pounds. It also has independent, front axle-mounted stabilizers.

Boom side shift and frame leveling are standard and can be engaged with or without stabilizers in use. The P50.18Plus offers high ground clearance, hydrostatic transmission, 100 hp Deutz engine and the Tac-lock system for simplified attachment change out.

The stabilizers are designed to act independently of each other. On uneven ground, this feature ensures higher stability and continuous productivity, the company says.

The new modular design of the P50.18Plus, with plug-and-play electronics, has a cab (FOPS and ROPS certified) with more than 46 square feet of window ensuring an operator has the load and machine surroundings in view at all times. The cab offers a wide split door, ergonomic seating, electronic joystick and simplified interfaces. Boom side shift, frame leveling and stabilizer deployment is only a button away from the joystick, ensuring seamless operator control, the company says.

The P50.18Plus is equipped with the Merlo MCDC, a standard operational safety software program. In real time the MCDC automatically recognizes attachments and monitors boom extension, angle and load weight. Other options are available to meet specific job requirements.
