The Merlo telescopic handlers are compact and lightweight to reduce manoeuvring space and impact on the ground. These features guarantee safety, manoeuvrability, productivity and lower consumption.
Merlo telescopic handlers are designed to offer the best visibility on the market, ensuring faster and safer operations.
STABILISERS Chassis levelling:
The tilt correction system, integrated into the chassis, is available as standard on this model. It allows the operator to offset the ground slopes to work in total safety. On sloping terrain the operator can correct the lateral inclination by 8% on each side, reaching 24% with the combined action of the stabilisers. This allows the telescopic boom to be moved out perpendicularly to work in conditions of maximum safety.
Boom side-shift:
This model is equipped with the exclusive boom side-shift, a system integrated into the telescopic boom that allows the load to be positioned without further manoeuvring, consequently saving time, avoiding stress and improving the machine's productivity.
The system allows for a boom side-shift up to 680 mm.


The best workplace
Quiet and comfortable:
The new cab, of generous dimensions, is mounted on Silent Blocks, which drastically reduce vibrations, guaranteeing maximum comfort and maximum visibility for the operator.

Quick accessories changeover:
The Tac-Lock system for hydraulic clamping of the attachments further improves operating comfort.
Protection of the handled load:

Not just feelings
Record-breaking safety:
The Merlo integrated safety system controls the operating parameters in real time, allowing the operator to work in peace.
Certified cabs / Certified protection:
The Merlo cab is FOPS - Level II - and ROPS certified, to guarantee a high level of safety for the operator.
Exclusive safety:
The exclusive new generation Merlo Dynamic Load Control (CDC) system automatically detects the type of attachment used, the machine's geometric configuration, the "boom extension and angle" and the handled load.
All information is displayed on the LCD screen, allowing the operator to use the telescopic handler simply and safely.


Simpler and smarter

Simple and precise operations
The entire range is equipped with hydrostatic transmission, which makes the work phases simpler and more precise. Moreover, the dry disc brakes limit the absorption of energy, thereby reducing the machine’s fuel consumption.

Reduced consumption
The exclusive Eco Power Drive (EPD) technology automatically controls and adjusts the engine revolutions based on operating conditions. As a result, the engine speed is disconnected from the accelerator pedal. This technology achieves a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 18%.

The widest cab of the category

The cab is designed to guarantee a record level of comfort for our customers. At 1010 m, it is the widest in the category, but careful attention has also been given to acoustic and thermal comfort. Furthermore, the low-frequency hydropneumatic shock absorber system allows for the drastic reduction of vibrations inside the passenger compartment and in the driver's seat.
Air conditioning:
The air conditioning system is completely new and has been developed according to automotive standards, halving the warm-up and cool down times to guarantee the optimal temperature in all conditions. The Merlo cab can reach an optimal internal temperature, even in extreme weather conditions. The inlet vent is placed on the side of the cab, away from potential sources of dust and dirt to maximise the service life of the filters. Inside there are 8 vents, three of which are dedicated to defrosting the windscreen, for optimal climate comfort.
The Merlo cab is FOPS - Level II - and ROPS certified. This ensures a high level of safety for the operator.
The latest generation Merlo cab incorporates a pressurisation system compliant with ISO 10263-3.

Merlo telescopic handlers are known worldwide for their extraordinary visibility, thanks to the large 4.3 m2 glass surface and the exclusive roof design.
Door that can be opened at 180°:
Exclusive door that can be opened at 180° for easy access and featuring an independent upper window: air circulation, visibility and direct contact with those working outside are assured without compromise.


The Merlo designers have adopted technologically advanced diesel engines, advanced hydrostatic transmissions and axles equipped with dry disc brakes, which contribute to reducing power absorption. Diesel engine/transmission management is electronic to optimise performance and minimise energy consumption.
Deutz 115 HP engine:
This model is equipped with a 115 HP (85 kW) four-cylinder Deutz Stage Tier IV engine. The engine complies with anti-pollution regulations with the DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) and SCR (Selective Catalysis Reduction).

40 Km/h Speed:
This model offers a maximum speed of 40 km/h.
Load sensing:
The variable displacement pump with the Load Sensing hydraulic distributor guarantees higher performance, more efficiency and increased productivity while simultaneously limiting consumption and component wear.
The transmission system is managed in a way that guarantees a high static starting torque, smooth progression and an optimisation of cycle times and consumption.


Merlo concepisce e produce internamente i propri assali, che sono così realizzati e dimensionati su misura per ogni applicazione, esaltando prestazioni e sicurezza per ogni modello.
Assali a portale 
Gli assali a portale sono realizzati con riduttore del tipo pignone/corona e assicurano un’ampia luce da terra. La struttura cinematica riduce il rumore e il beccheggio in fase di frenata e accelerazione, migliorando la marcia in curva e nei trasferimenti sotto carico. 
Tre modalità di sterzatura:
I telescopici Merlo offrono tre modalità di sterzatura: solo le ruote anteriori, a volta corretta e a granchio.
L’esclusiva soluzione adottata sugli assali assicura il massimo angolo di sterzo per eseguire manovre in spazi ristretti.
Quattro ruote motrici:
Le ruote motrici sempre in presa sono sinonimo di massima trazione in ogni condizione operativa.
L'impianto frenante integrale servoassistito agisce sulle quattro ruote per la massima sicurezza in ogni contesto lavorativo. Freno di stazionamento: si attiva automaticamente allo spegnimento del motore oppure manualmente dalla cabina.
Gli stabilizzatori della gamma PANORAMIC sono strutturati in maniera semplice per ottimizzare una messa in opera veloce e sicura. La progettazione esclusiva degli stabilizzatori, sviluppata per offrire un’elevata resistenza strutturale, garantisce un limitato ingombro degli stessi nelle fasi operative, rimanendo sempre all’interno della sagoma della macchina e limitando gli ingombri visivi durante le fasi di trasferimento. Il comando indipendente permette l’azionamento singolo di ogni stabilizzatore, consentendo un più semplice posizionamento al suolo, inoltre, la forma del piede d’appoggio garantisce un ottimo ancoraggio al suolo anche in caso di terreni soffici o scoscesi.


The Merlo designers have devised a sturdy, compact and lightweight telescopic boom, today a benchmark for design, load capacity and speed when carrying out work. The chosen steel is of the structural type with welds along the neutral bending axis, offering a rectilinear boom in any extension or loading condition.
Boom 12,5m:
The boom consists of three sections: the maximum lift height is 12.5 metres for unrivalled versatility.
The components - including the boom extension cylinder, the hydraulic pipes and the electric cables - are housed within a cartridge structure inserted in the boom. This exclusive solution considerably increases the longevity of the components and makes the external shape clean and snag free, allowing for rapid maintenance operations.
The ZM2-type tool carrier carriage allows for all Merlo attachments to be connected. The hydraulic locking of the tools is carried out from the cab, while the hydraulic and electrical connections feature quick couplings.
The attachments are easily replaceable, thanks to the exclusive Tac-Lock system for the hydraulic locking of the attachments, thereby improving operating comfort.
Hydraulic and electrical connections:
Hydraulic and electrical connections are available at the end of the boom, allowing for the movements of the various usable attachments to be operated directly from the cab.
