Merlo’s heavy-duty range of telehandlers, which includes the P72.10PLUS, are engineered to meet the needs of all industries required to move heavy loads under all conditions, safely. The P72.10PLUS offers telescopic performance without limiting the speed of work.
Maximum load capacity is 15,800 pounds. The low pivot, no-flex boom has a lift height up to 31 feet 3 inches. Top load at full height is 9,000 pounds. A maximum reach of 17 feet 1-inch efficiently manages 4,500 pounds.
The P72.10PLUS is powered by a 115HP Perkins engine with Eco Power Drive (EPD). To maximize efficiency, the EPD automatically controls and adjusts engine speed, hydrostatic pump flow rate and hydrostatic engine displacement according to operating conditions. EPD reduces RPM and ensures a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 18 percent.
A load-sensing hydraulic pump with a flow-sharing distributor supplies the P72.10PLUS with high efficiency performance, and smooth operation. The hydrostatic transmission, four-wheel drive, three steering modes and speeds up to 25 mph creates a nimble machine.
Merlo’s adaptive stability control system recognizes the machine’s operating parameters in real time. This includes attachments, load weight, machine positioning. Depending on the implement in use, the system can vary the response of the machine and the speed of movements. Machine safety also includes an automatic parking brake management system. The machine sets the brake automatically when the engine switches off to avoid unintentional movements.
Every Merlo has a 3-inch solid ring of steel surrounding the machine. Along with increasing structural strength, the ring of steel eliminates the need for counterweights, making this a compact telehandler (17’11” x 7’4” x 8’2”). The P72.10PLUS is equipped with frame leveling, boom side-shift, and inching pedal for safe precision material placement.
Designed for the operator, the cab sports automotive style ergonomics while ensuring protection for the operator. FOPS (Level II) and ROPS certified, the 3 foot 3-inch spacious cockpit and the expansive glass surface -- front, back, sides, roof – of the cab is designed to ensure comfort and full visibility. Reverse shuttle is on the steering column and joystick.
