Growing the telehandler market in Western Canada

Merlo looks to impress producers with newer, bigger 40.9 Multifarmer

 

Merlo has introduced the Merlo 40.9 version of its hybrid Multifarmer telehandler with an 8.8 metre lift height. A 40 kilometre per hour road speed makes them ideal for pulling bale wagons. Having spent a fair amount of time visiting farms in Europe, I can vouch for the fact the telehandler has become nearly as common as the regular ag tractor on farms there. Farmers, often cramped for space, value the material handling ability of these machines in everything from loading grain to stacking bales.

For several years now, Italian company Merlo has been offering its Multifarmer line of telehandlers, which push the capabilities of those machines quite a way into the realm of the regular ag tractor — while keeping that superior ability to lift and place loads well beyond what an ag tractor is capable of.

For at least the last decade, Merlo and other brands — JCB the most notable among them — have been working to impress North American farmers with the telehandlers their European cousins have valued for years. And with some success, apparently. Executives from more than one of those brands has told me they are slowly gaining ground in that effort.

Recently, Merlo added more power and lifting capability to its Multifarmer line in an effort to deliver a telehandler hybrid that appeals to an even larger group of Canadian farmers, the 40.9 model, which bumps PTO horsepower up to 156 and can lift a load of 4,000 kilograms to 8.8 metres. It can also safely reach that load out horizontally 5.8 metres.

“This machine is an amazing chore tractor. It’s not just a hay stacker,” says Joel Smit, the brand’s Western Canada rep. “It has 156 horsepower on the PTO. You can hang 15,500 pounds (7,030 kilograms) off the three-point hitch arms.”
