The P50.18HM models are part of the High Capacity range and have been specially designed for heavy handling, where performance in terms of lifting capacity and engine power makes all the difference. What distinguishes this series from others is that it has managed to maintain compact dimensions, increasing maneuverability and versatility of use.
The new construction concept allows you to customize models according to operational needs.


Everything at your fingertips

Exclusive precision :

Guarantees maximum precision of movements, thanks to the hydrostatic transmission, which ensures millimetric variations in the movements of the machine and the positioning of the load.

Compact and lightweight :

Merlo telehandlers are compact and lightweight to reduce maneuvering space and ground impact. These characteristics guarantee safety, maneuverability, productivity and reduced consumption.


Merlo telehandlers are designed to provide the best visibility on the market, ensuring faster and safer operations.

MCVtronic :

The Merlo CVTronic intelligent continuous transmission combines Merlo’s experience, acquired in hydrostatic transmissions, with new technical solutions that allow it to achieve the same performance, consumption and efficiency as a traditional CVT transmission.

Chassis nivelling :

The tilt correction system, integrated into the chassis, is standard on this model. It allows the operator to compensate for terrain slopes of 8%. This allows the telescopic boom to be extended vertically to work in maximum safety conditions.  

Lateral movement of the boom :

This model is equipped with the exclusive sideshift boom, a system integrated into the telescopic boom that allows the load to be positioned without further maneuvering, saving time, avoiding stress and improving productivity. of the machine. The system allows a lateral offset of the boom up to 880 mm.  


The best place to work

Quiet and comfortable :

  The new cabin, with generous dimensions (1,010 mm), is mounted on Silent Blocks, which significantly reduce vibrations, guaranteeing maximum comfort and maximum visibility for the operator.

Quick change of accessories :

The Tac-Lock hydraulic accessory clamping system further improves user comfort.

Protection of the handled load:

The Boom Suspension System (BSS) is available as an option, which protects the load during transfer and maintains a high level of driving comfort on rough terrain.


Not just feelings

Security of recordings :

The Merlo integrated safety system monitors operating parameters in real time, allowing the operator to work with complete peace of mind.

Certified cabins / Certified protection:

The Merlo cabin is FOPS – Level II – and ROPS certified, to guarantee a high level of safety for the operator.

Everything is under control :

This model is equipped with the exclusive new generation ASCS (Adaptive Stability Control System) safety system. The ASCS monitors the safety parameters of the telehandler in real time and allows the operator to work in complete safety by making the best use of the potential of the telehandler and the accessory used.


Simpler and smarter

Simple and precise operations:

The entire range is equipped with a hydrostatic transmission, which makes the work phases simpler and more precise. Additionally, dry disc brakes limit energy absorption, thereby reducing the machine’s fuel consumption.

Reduced consumption:

Exclusive Eco Power Drive (EPD) technology automatically monitors and adjusts engine revolutions based on operating conditions. As a result, the engine speed is disconnected from the accelerator pedal. This technology reduces fuel consumption by up to 18%.
