Merlo's new MPR range of aerial platforms combines rough-terrain mobility with working heights up to

Merlo's new MPR range of aerial platforms combines rough-terrain mobility with working heights up to 30 m.

It is SAIE's turn this month to debut new equipment, even though several of the newer machines on show will be launches in Italy of products previously seen at Bauma earlier this year. Nonetheless, the launches, the 260000 m2 of show space, and 1750 exhibitors give visitors a lot to see.

What is there for access visitors to look out for in particular? The Italians are strong in crawlers, and the bigger ones at SAIE will be the Ragno XTJ 42 from Palazzani, previewed at Bauma, and a new 41 m working height machine from CMC. Other, smaller models will be Tecchio's new 22 m working height machine, a 16 m from Platform Basket, and 19 m and 15 m models from SUP.

New truck-mounts include a 27 m working height MX 270 from OP Pagliero and the 56 m working height TJ56 on a 32 t carrier from Socage.

At the other end of the working height range is Braviisol. It is launching a 6 m version of its popular Leonardo mini platform.

Noteworthy, too, is mast climbing equipment. Alimak Hek's Italian subsidiary is showing its new modular line of mast climbing machines in both light- and medium-weight models. Geda will have its new lightweight work platform and new combination hoist at Bologna, too, and ASClimber is showing the latest versions of its modular models.

Those interested in telehandlers will have lots to see as well. JLG is launching a model at SAIE, but it says anyone wanting additional information will have to visit its stand – could it be the smaller version of the compact 266? Faresin, Merlo, and Manitou will exhibit their new models, and Bobcat, Haulotte, and Case are launching relatively new models into Italy at SAIE.

To make your visit easier to plan, we have prepared a full listing of access exhibitors, giving details – where known by the company – of what machines they will be showing. Enjoy the show.
