The Panoramic P 50.18 HM telehandler has a 5 t load capacity and a maximum 18 m lift height
The machine cab is spacious and the controls are arranged for user-friendly and easy operation and monitoring. Both the driver's seat and the steering wheel can be adjusted, and the air conditioning system with numerous air vents aim to maintains a comfortable temperature inside the cab.
The P50.18 HMl is powered by a NEF Tier 3 six-cylinder, water-cooled diesel engine with an aftercooled turbocharger. The engine is combined with Merlo's traditional hydrostatic transmission, giving stepless variable speed from zero to 40 kph.
The load-sensing hydraulic system uses a variable displacement pump, which automatically varies hydraulic oil delivery depending on the demand from the various hydraulic circuits, this speeds up handling and lifting operations. The controls are managed through an electronic multifunctional joystick.
