Merlo shows first handler with cab suspension

Operators of Merlo’s heavy-duty P55.9CS telescopic handler have the added comfort of cab suspension to give a more comfortable ride over rough ground.

The spring system that isolates the cab from the rest of the machine proved its worth as the 5500kg/8.6m machine was put through its paces on one of two clamps at the Grassland & Muck event.

A low boom pivot helps visibility to the rear and there is also a better view forwards because the suspension raises the cab a little from its usual position. The heavy-duty machine, designed mainly for repeated heavy lifting and loading cycles, is powered by a 140hp Deutz diesel.
