Merlo P27.6 Plus –Maximum Performance + Productivity

Original source: AMS/Merlo


Applied Machinery Sales is the official importer and distributor of Merlo machinery in the USA, with a national network of dealers. Merlo Telehandlers and Rotos are designed to work in the most demanding conditions in any industry, during any season, where performance in terms of lifting capacity and engine power make all the difference. Designed for operator efficiency, Merlo telehandlers come equipped with enclosed cabs with AC/heat, 360 degree operator views, intuitive controls, and nimble maneuverability thanks to the hydrostatic transmission and three steering modes. Merlo telehandlers deliver unparalleled comfort, efficiency, and versatility to every job.

Merlo’s P27.6 PLUS delivers BIG capabilities. This compact machine (12’10’ x 6’0”x 6’5”) with its 10” ground clearance supplies a 6,000 lbs. maximum load capacity. Its ground-engaging, no-flex boom lifts smoothly to 19’4” and easily handles 3,970 lbs. The maximum reach of 10’9” safely carries 2,200 lbs. Weighing in at 10,700 lbs. unladen, the P27.6 PLUS can safely be towed on a heavy-duty trailer.

Forks are standard on the P27.6 PLUS, and the hydraulic & electrical service outlets on the boom ensures this machine easily adapts to a wide selection of attachments such as buckets, manbaskets, winches, jibs, augers, hook on carriage, and a sweeper. The easy-to-add skid steer adapter expands the attachment capabilities even more.

The P27.6PLUS is the perfect machine for business expansion. Consider adding a snow blade or bucket for parking lot clearing in the winter months. Adding a manbasket means you can offer safe holiday decorating services to your residential (and commercial) customers. Consider the possibilities.

This Merlo telehandler has the largest enclosed cab in its class (3’3”), with a wide glass surface (360° view) for optimal viewing. FOPS and ROPS certified, this cab is designed for optimal operator efficiency with a maximum level of ergonomic seating. The dashboard and joystick are intuitive.
