Manulift Breaks New Ground With the TurboFarmer 65.9
In an effort to lighten the ever-increasing burden of handling and moving heavy loads in all industries, Manulift is establishing itself as a performance gas pedal with the TurboFarmer 65.9 from world-renowned equipment manufacturer Merlo, for which it has exclusive distribution in Canada.
”The TF 65.9 is truly a unique model, designed to handle the most difficult jobs. Its load capacity of 6,500 kg, in addition to its great maneuverability in tight spaces, makes it one of the most compact and efficient machines for repetitive and robust tasks,” said Martin Drolet, Manulift’s president and CEO. “Telescopic handlers can compensate and make up for certain productivity deficits. Considering the lack of manpower availability that we are experiencing these days, it is no surprise that companies are using them more and more.”
Thanks to its mixed use, the Merlo TurboFarmer 65.9 will meet all the challenges in terms of handling and moving very heavy loads.
“This telescopic handler is a tool that will allow us to increase our productivity tenfold on a daily basis,” said Michael Waldner of Truss Community in Manitoba, who owned the very first TF65.9 unit long before its official arrival in Canada.
“Designed for repetitive movements, this equipment has the virtue of being able to ensure very fast movements, in only a few seconds, whatever the axis: vertically, up or down, horizontally, from right to left and vice versa, in retraction or extension mode! Nothing compares to the TurboFarmer 65.9,” added Martin Drolet.
For example, the HF (Hi-Flow) models are equipped, as standard, with a new joystick developed to improve ergonomics, reduce operator fatigue and increase daily productivity.
They are equipped with the latest generation of Merlo’s hydraulic spool valves, combined with a high flow hydraulic pump. Also, the quick change of attachments, with the hydraulic clamping system called Tac-Lock, greatly improves efficiency as well as the natural comfort of use.
Already present in all spheres of agriculture and construction in Canada, Manulift wants to conquer new niche markets with the TurboFarmer 65.9. Among those: jobsites where contractors must manage large volumes of work, in terms of quantity as well as weight.
With a view to making its product line more accessible, Manulift also offers its customers adapted financing facilities, taking into account the most advantageous financial structure in terms of tax savings and/or protection of working capital and optimization of cash flow.
