The Turbofarmer 50.8 has been designed to work in the most demanding conditions where performance in terms of lifting capacity and engine power make all the difference.
Part of the HEAVY DUTY range, this TF can lift 5 tonnes up to 7.8 meters: this new concept can be customised according to operational needs and thanks an efficient 4.5L FPT engine it develops 170 hp (125kW), offering a maximum speed of 40 km/h.
The Eco Power Drive (EPD) and hydrostatic transmission automatically control and adjust the engine revolutions based on operating conditions. As a result, the engine speed is disconnected from the accelerator pedal. This technology achieves a reduction in fuel consumption of 18%. On this model the EPD TOP system is as standard and offers automatic RPM speed control in relation to joystick movements in order to increase hydraulic performance on demand.
T range comes with standard Chassis Levelling: the tilt correction system integrated into the chassis, allows the operator to correct the lateral inclination by 8%; this permits the telescopic boom to be moved out perpendicularly to work in condition of maximum safety.
The standard cab gives easy access, astounding space with great visibility: generous in dimensions, the cab is mounted on Silent Block, which drastically reduce vibrations, guaranteeing maximum comfort and visibility, whist the option of cab suspension provides a superior ride unique to Merlo.
Heavy Duty versions are equipped as standard with full MCDC (Merlo Dynamic Load Control) coupled with a large 10.1” colour display and attachment recognition, showing machine’s geometric configuration, boom extension, angle and handled load.
This model come standard with Pick up Hitch, Trailer Braking and Tractor Type Approval for your towing requirements.
The CS model comes with standard Cab Suspension: the exclusive patented and dampened CS with active hydropneumatic suspension, can be switched off directly by the operator. The low frequency system allows the drastic reduction of vibrations inside the passenger compartment and facilitates the absorption of the stress and vibrations transmitted during the transfer and work phases, even on rough grounds. Merlo is the only one on the market providing such an innovative and effective feature.
The CVT model is equipped as standard with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVTronic) which ensures a smooth and progressive acceleration 0-40km/h, without interruption for a gear change: this provides higher starting torque at low speeds, lower consumption and greater efficiency at high speeds.
