Merlo has showcased its auto-levelling stabilisation technology as well as energy saving systems on telescopic handler models it is showcasing at Bauma 2013.

The Roto 40.18 S and Panoramic 50.8 models were on show, targeted at the construction industry.

The Roto 40.18 S is a 13 tonne model that can reach to 18m and carry a maximum load of 4 tonnes. It is fitted with the company’s automatic levelling and stabilisation technology, which is said to increase the safety of the machine.

Meanwhile, the Panoramic 50.8 is an 8.8 tonne machine that can lift up to 5 tonnes and features a maximum lift height of 8m. This machine boasts a new, hydrostatic transmission that is said to increase performance and reduce fuel consumption.

Merlo claims the new machine could save customers over €4,300 a year in fuel costs through its new EPD system that provides three operating modes to tailor output to the task in hand. This means that engine RPNM can be managed in a way that provides maximum performance with minimum fuel consumption.
