Merlo machines are the synthesis of technology and respect for mankind. Each component is designed to maximize performance and make work easier and more comfortable.
From the cab, designed to ensure the highest standards of safety and comfort that interior dimensions offer at the highest level on the market.
The controls for driving on the road are designed to be operated while keeping the hands on the wheel and meet the latest ergonomic design.
Merlo has developed three types of suspension to further increase the comfort for the operator:
- The CS (Cab Suspension) that offers the highest level of operator comfort in the cab, ensuring a high level of comfort for the operator.
Hydro-pneumatic suspension B.S.S.
The cushioning function of the telescopic boom hydraulic suspension, BSS - Boom Suspension System, is entrusted to a hydraulic circuit equipped with gas pressure dampers that act on the lifting cylinder of the boom itself.
The system is based on a proven technology that provides an effective damping of the stresses that are transmitted to the payload during the work phases, significantly reducing the pitch of the boom during transfers at high speed.
Hydro-pneumatic suspension E.A.S. - Merlo patent
The EAS (Electronic Active Suspension) operate through the integration of uniform and balanced hydraulics and electronics, the two technologies chosen to pilot the standard mechanics. By combining hydraulics (the actual damping system) with electronics (the control system), Merlo engineers have developed an active self-regulating system that operates with the same efficiency irrespective of the load and without the operator having to worry about its functional control.
The ride is more comfortable, especially when towing a heavy trailer or operating on uneven ground.
The device also acts as a transversal pitch adjustment allowing to work even on slopes in total safety.
The dynamics of the vehicle, especially when cornering, are advantaged..
Hydro-pneumatic suspension C.S. - Merlo patent
The loaders of the Panoramic CS series are the first in the world to have the cab with hydro-pneumatic suspension. Comfort reaches its maximum level because the innovative CS - Cab Suspension - allows to effectively absorb shock and vibration transmitted from the ground. The large range ensures the most effective response even in the most challenging transfers, thanks to the perfect integration of pneumatic and hydraulic devices.
The operation of the suspensions, activated by a single button in the cab, can be switched on and off depending on the operational needs, even with the machine in motion
