MERLO FEATURE IN HOT 50

MERLO FEATURE IN HOT 50, FARMERS GUARDIAN AWARD

Merlo’s innovative and patented M CDC (Merlo Dynamic Load Control) has been awarded a place in Farmers Guardian’s inaugural Hot 50 publication celebrating innovation and excellence in agricultural machinery.
Launched at Lamma this year the publication’s brief was to come up with a list of machines and/or pieces of kit which were exceptional, both in form and function.

What the Hot 50 panel said about M CDC …

“Farm Safety is always of paramount importance, and Merlo has gone the distance to prevent injury with its M CDC Dynamic Load Control System, designed primarily to avoid forward over-turning. Other useful features include the ability to recognise attachments and automatically select virtual load charts to match specific implements, and a weigh feature which displays the last 20 loads totalling up to 9,999 tonnes”.

Merlo Dynamic Load Control (M CDC)

Safety remains the prime Merlo objective and the M CDC system, now standard on all Turbofarmers, takes a totally new approach to load control.
The system identifi es the weight and position of the payload, compares both to a virtual ‘load chart’ and calculates the ‘stability index’. As the stability index rises, audio/visual alarms and a fi nal hydraulic lock act to prevent a forward overturn.
In late 2012, M CDC had also won the highly acclaimed innovation award at International Show, EIMA proving Merlo goes beyond EN15000 requirements for safety.
