HIGH LIFT a year on from the launch of the heavy duty Turbofarmer II range, Merlo has introduced smaller additions to its telescopic handler line-up.

The hydrostatic drive TF30.9 has 3 tonne maximum lift capacity and can take a 1.2 tonne load to the 8.6m lift height.

There is also a TF33.7 version with 3.3 tonne max lift and capable of taking 2.6 tonne to 6.7m. It has the same dimensions as the TF30.9 - they are 2.1m wide and 2.12m high in standard configuration but with low profile variants shaving a bit of the height at 2.02m. Both machines are fitted with load-sensing hydraulics and a 122hp Deutz engines with 40kph Merlo EcoPowerDrive engine and hydrostatic transmission control claimed to deliver significant fuel savings.
