Merlo attracts high-profile users

The availability of models within the Merlo telehandler range that are equipped to meet the needs of construction and industrial users generally – as distinct from those designed for agricultural contracting application – has helped distributor McHale Plant Sales to add a number of high-profile users to its customer base. 

Two of the largest and most respected companies in their sectors – John Sisk and Priority Drilling – are the latest to add Merlo to their materials handling fleets, supplied to them by McHale Plant Sales. In both cases, the Merlo Panoramic model P40.17 was the model chosen whose 21-strong range boasts features that include Dynamic Load Control and lifting capacities from 3400kg to 4500kg with lifting heights from 7m to 18m.

Also enhancing its telehandler fleet is leading civil engineering contractor Rossmore Civils, who has recently added a new Merlo Panoramic P38.13 to its machinery line-up, complete with a 3800kg lift and 13metres reach. 

These follow recent sales to waste handling and recycling specialist Thorntons, civil works contractor NRS, Raven Mobile Homes and building, civil and marine engineering contractors, L&M Keating – a company already ranked as Ireland’s single largest Merlo fleet operator.
