Manulift - Panorama - 40.17 Telehandlers

Panoramic telehandlers take the name from their unrivalled visibility from the driver's seat. Since 1987 - when Merlo produced the world's first telehandler to feature a side-mounted engine - the Panoramic concept has been continuously developed and, to this day, remains the source of inspiration for other telehandler manufacturers.

The position of the engine plays a fundamental role in offering maximum accessibility from the ground and, together with the exceptionally low boom pivot point, makes possible its legendary all-round visibility. When combined with the standard hydrostatic transmission, the side-mounted engine results in a machine that is typically smaller and lighter than competitors, something appreciated on today's often confined work sites. Merlo's integral boom side-shift, frame levelling and hydraulic stabilizers ensure the highest levels of stability, safety and performance. Features such as the 'Ring of Steel' suggest a new level of ruggedness, high profitability and versatility. The Panoramic family - with hydraulic stabilizers - offers a host of models, with load capacities up to 4,000 kg and lift heights up to almost 17 metres.
