Fork­west now of­fi­cial SW Merlo deal­er­ship

South Western Times - - Wheels -

Merlo’s panoramic han­dler range demon­strates the in­no­va­tion and tech­nol­ogy Merlo is known for, and now, Fork­west has be­come the South West’s pre­mier and only Merlo dealer.

Fork­west di­rec­tor Phil Baker said the move from be­ing a stock­ist to an of­fi­cial deal­er­ship has been hugely ben­e­fi­cial.

“Merlo ap­proached us and said ‘would you like to be the dealer for the South West, as we don’t have any­one here’,” he said.

“We now cover a 200km ra­dius from Bun­bury and now get parts di­rect from Italy and sell them con­sid­er­ably lower.”

Through an in­no­va­tive ap­proach to prod­uct de­vel­op­ment, Merlo Group has be­come a world mar­ket leader in hy­dro­static trans­mis­sion tele­han­dlers, with more than 50 years of lead­ing ex­per­tise in de­sign and safety.

The un­equalled per­for­mance, 102hp tur­bocharged en­gine, boom sideshift and frame lev­el­ling de­vices with the unique BSS and EAS sus­pen­sion sys­tems add up to an­other in­com­pa­ra­ble so­lu­tion from Merlo.

“Merlo is one of the only man­u­fac­tur­ers that make 100 per cent of ev­ery­thing in their own fac­tory – they make ev­ery­thing, every sin­gle thing on the ma­chine,” Mr Baker said. “A lot of other man­u­fac­tur­ers bring in other com­pa­nies for dif­fer­ent com­po­nents.

“One of the re­ally good things about Merlo, is all they man­u­fac­ture is tele­han­dlers – they make a great prod­uct.”

Win­ning fea­tures in­clude a spa­cious and com­fort­able cab, highly er­gonomic con­trol lay­out, multi-pur­pose joy­stick, per­sonal stor­age, easy cab ac­cess, sound re­duc­tion, side-mounted en­gine and a hy­dro­static trans­mis­sion.

The Panoramic han­dler range in­cludes mod­els in the 7m and 17m classes with lift­ing ca­pac­i­ties rang­ing from 3400kg to 10000kg.

The ex­clu­sive fea­tures of the range en­sure max­i­mum per­for­mance and ease of op­er­a­tion even in the tough­est of ap­pli­ca­tions, and is avail­able now through the South West’s only Merlo dealer – Fork­west.
