Heavy Cap vs Rotating Telehandlers

Merlo has always focused on the following: Productivity, Safety, Operator Comfort, and Serviceability. Our high capacity and rotating telehandlers are designed to make working in any environment easy and achievable. What are the differences between our two most popular characteristics and how do you know which one will be the right fit?


When discussing Merlo’s rotating telehandlers, the first thing to come to mind is the Roto Series. Merlo Rotos can do more in less space than most cranes. With its 360° continuous turret rotation, independent stabilizers and very compact footprint, a Merlo Roto will lift materials and personnel to any height safely and quickly. Their 360° revolving turret allows for full coverage vision without the need to reposition the machine. Along with the 360° rotation of the cab, it also tilts at 20° in any direction, allowing the operator to effortlessly oversee the loading movements. The models of the S-PLUS series have been designed to offer the maximum technology in terms of efficiency, performance, and versatility of use. The stabilizers of the ROTO S-PLUS are structured to facilitate rapid and safe deployment that can be adjusted based on the conditions of the site. The standard equipment includes self-stabilization with automatic leveling that ensures correct positioning of the machine without operator intervention. Roto telehandlers embody a new concept of strength in action. Successful even in the most challenging handling and lifting operations.

The high-capacity range of telehandlers has been developed to meet the needs of all those who must conduct demanding work and move heavy loads in complete safety. These machines are the definition of power, with engines from 116 to 170 HP and a maximum speed of twenty-five mph. Featuring permanent four-wheel drive, the Merlo telehandlers have excellent braking capacity, guaranteeing high torque to the wheels during material handling and transfers. When talking high capacity, we have the Panoramic high-capacity telehandler range and the Turbofarmer telehandler range. Amongst the abundance of these machines, no decision made when choosing is a bad one.

Whatever the job site demands, Merlo has a solution. From our rotating telehandlers, high-capacity machines, and many more, you are bound to put your trust in our reliable green machines.
