Garden State Engine & Equipment (GSE&E) has delivered a Merlo R40.30 MCSS rotating telescopic forklift to Ashnu International of Queens, N.Y.
“Our choice was easy because not only does the Merlo have the ability to reach 96 feet high delivering material to the scaffolding throughout the entire project, it also rotates within the parameters of the barricades, allowing us not to tie up traffic which saves us enormous amounts of man hours,” said Owain Rees, project manager of Ashnu.
“The Merlo is a vital part of this operation. Working with a telescopic forklift in a neighborhood at an NYC school poses plenty of challenges and concerns. With the Merlo sitting stationary, it allows us to eliminate a major concern of machine traffic and accomplish our daily goals quickly and safely. Having the rotating cab with 96 feet lift height enables us to reach a 200 foot span; all while stationary in the middle of the building.”
Project Manager Yudi Sukul said “Having the quick attach for changing the tools with a push of a button from cab proves to be not only smart but a time saver as well. The operator can switch from the bucket to the forks or to the jib easily and within seconds. We can dispose of debris on one side of the building and deliver materials to the other side without moving the machine.”
Ashnu International is a mult-million dollar construction management and general contracting company. The company maintains a reputation in both the public and private sectors, and consistently delivers on schedule and within budget.
