Merlo Launches P50.18 Panoramic Telehandler

Merlo introduced its new P50.18Plus high capacity telehandler, part of its Panoramic range.

It offers a lift height of 58’5”, a reach of 44 ft., and load capacity of 11,000 lbs., with the added benefit of independent, front axle mounted stabilizers. Boom side shift and frame leveling are standard and can be engaged with or without stabilizers in use.

Merlo telehandlers are known for their compact footprint and the P50.18Plus is no exception even when stabilizers are deployed.  With its unladed weight of 29,300 lbs., the P50.18Plus offers high ground clearance, hydrostatic transmission, 100-hp Deutz engine, and the Tac-lock system for simplified attachment change out.

The stabilizers are designed to act independently of each other.  On uneven ground, this feature ensures higher stability and continuous productivity. 

The new modular design of the P50.18Plus, with its “Plug & Play” electronics, has a cab (FOPS and ROPS certified) with over 46 sq. ft. of windows, ensuring an operator has the load and machine surroundings in view at all times. The cab offers a wide split door, ergonomic seating, electronic joystick, and simplified interfaces. Boom side shift, frame leveling, and stabilizer deployment is only a button away from the joystick, ensuring seamless operator control.

The P50.18Plus is equipped with the Merlo MCDC, a standard operational safety software program. In real time the MCDC automatically recognizes attachments and monitors boom extension, angle, and load weight. Operational options are available to meet specific job requirements.
