Merlo's new Multifarmer
Merlo has previewed two new machines at the SIMA 2009 agricultural machinery exhibition in Paris.
The Super-Compact P25.6 features a 995mm (3.26 foot) cab and is 1,920mm (6.20 feet) high. It is able to lift 2,500kg (5,511 pounds) to 6m (19 feet) and is powered by a 50kW diesel engine. The P25.6 uses a Merlo four-wheel drive hydrostatic driveline concept and can travel at a maximum road speed of 30 km/h (18 mph).
The Multifarmer 40.9 CS is the third line of Merlo tractor/telehandler machines. It has heavy-duty epicyclic axles and the three-section boom will lift to 8.8m (28 feet). This telehandler features a hydro-pneumatic cab suspension.
Like the P25.6, the new Multifarmer will be approved for use on the road as a farm tractor in many European countries.
