No one understands the strengths and weaknesses of a vehicle better than those who drive it every day. That’s why we decided to meet with our customers and ask them to explain why they chose Merlo.
The first company we visited was Bodini Filippini Angelo e Francesco Società agricola, which represents a benchmark in the Brescia area in terms of professionalism, vision and product quality.
In fact, the company consists of a breeding farm (300 dairy cows), a dairy, a farm holiday structure, and a restaurant, and is even a member of a consortium that manages a biogas plant. It’s an amount of work that would be unsustainable without some help!
The Bodini Filippini company is managed by the families of Angelo and Francesco. The breeding farm is managed by Claudio, who greets us from the cab of his Merlo TF42.7 CS 140 CVTronic telescopic handler, which still looks new despite several months of use. And after speaking with him, we understood why. “Merlo telehandlers have been an essential part of all our work activities since 1997, and not just in the field of agriculture!” explains Mr. Claudio Bodini Filippini. For him, the latest model purchased, the TF42.7, is like a little gem that’s reserved for his own exclusive use. For the others, there’s another telehandler, the P40.17, which, in addition to the heavier farm work, is also used for various other jobs, and has even been used for renovation work.
