ELECTRIFICATION ATTRACTS BUYERS TO MERLO
The swing to electric-powered transportation – driven by ‘buyer preference’ as evident in the motor trade – is making itself felt in the plant and equipment sector as the flow of new developments and research projects would suggest.
One to benefit from the emergence of all-electric powered machines is Merlo, distributed here in Ireland by McHale Plant Sales, whose E-Worker telehandlers are gaining favour amongst buyers working in environmentally-sensitive locations and on projects best served by emissions-free equipment.
Two notable deals have seen EW25.5 (90kw) telehandlers supplied to Murphy International and Connacht Contracting.
On the wider Merlo front, a flow of recent sales has seen three Merlo P27.6 compact units go to road maintenance specialists, TLI Group in Tralee and a number including the robust Roto model go to Grange Construction in Navan. Other deals have seen new P40.17 units purchased by ‘big Merlo buyer’ Costello Construction in Tralee and long-time Merlo user Strawchip in Athy.
