Having an on-board computer allows the machine to let the operator see on his dashboard screen the boom height, the radius and the weight on the boom tip.
Garden State Engine & Equipment (GSE&E) has delivered a Merlo R45.21 MCSS rotating telescopic forklift to Oliveira Contracting of Albertson, N.Y.
“We used other rotating machines in the past and we’ve determined that the Merlo R45.21 is best suited for our needs and for many reasons it is the better value,” said Larry Oliveira. “The operating system is less complicated to learn, making the learning curve shorter and easier for an operator to adjust and essentially to get the work done quicker. Using a Merlo rotating machine allows us to work smarter, not harder. With labor being a large cost, the Merlo allows us to save on labor, save on the time of positioning a machine for each and every pick. In NYC the job sites are tight. We can set our materials up and swing around and reach out to pick them as needed. This saves us time and money and enables us to complete our jobs faster and on time.”
“The Merlo’s ability to rotate 360 degrees continuously makes the Merlo perfect for us and plays a very important role in the completion of our work. The Merlo performs and lives up to all the expectations as we were informed.
An important feature the Merlo offers is the one-touch self-leveling outriggers. The operator deploys the outriggers by holding one button and the machine reacts by deploying the outriggers and setting the machine on a level and ready to work position. Oliveira’s Merlo also is equipped with air conditioning, an on-board computer and a multi-function joystick which gives the operator the ability to rotate, telescope and lift the materials all with one motion all while keeping one hand on the steering wheel at all times when he needs to drive.
“The Merlo R45.21 performs with ease and agility. Having an on-board computer allows the machine to let the operator see on his dashboard screen the boom height, the radius and the weight on the boom tip. This machine not only saves time and money, but adds an important safety factor allowing the operator to feel comfortable with his pick,” said Oliveira. “Safety is always an important factor when deciding to purchase a machine. The machine will not allow the operator to pick more than the machine can handle keeping our workers and job site safe while building in an efficient and timely manner.
“GSE&E sales and service department has provided me with a machine of excellent quality, an innovative design and a machine that does more than its competition, all for less money. I made the right decision to purchase a Merlo. For the amount of time we will be using the machine, owning verses renting is more advantageous for us,” Oliveira said.
