The strength of Merlo technology lies in its capacity to manufacture cutting-edge machines that change the way
people work. Increased safety, comfort, and performance are the objectives that every design aims at achieving.
This is why each new Merlo machine sets new records in terms of design, power, and respect for both mankind and
the environment.
Each new type becomes part of a winning team of inexhaustible power, and can overcome even the most challenging
obstacles.
The Roto
concept
All over the world
A new concept
of productivity and safety
When traditional handling methods cannot get the job done, it’s time for a new idea: Roto – a telescopic handler with
the added dimension of a slewing turret.
Safety, efficiency and manoeuvrability are the key features of this revolutionary concept, the fruit of Merlo’s research
and experience since 1990.
Roto telehandlers embody a new concept of strength in action, successful even in the most challenging handling and
lifting operations, thanks to their tremendous off-highway performance.
Imagine a family of machines, combining all the benefits of a telescopic handler plus a lightweight lifting capability and
the ability to safely place personnel into position at height. On top of this, unrivalled mobility on the road and brilliant
performance on site. With load capacities up to 6 tons and lift heights of over 31 metres (MCTJ model).
Put simply, that is the Roto! Three distinct product families offer high profitability and versatility in site tasks that would
normally require several specialised or larger machines.

FOR hAndlinG And liFTinG
The heart of the Roto is a robust self-propelled carrier base – equipped with stabilisers to ensure superb stability
when lifting – on which the slewing turret is mounted, along with the driver’s cab and telescopic boom.
These are highly mobile machines. The strength of the chassis, Merlo-designed and built drive/steer axles,
extraordinary ground clearance with generous approach and departure angles and road travel at up to 40 kph, all
add up to unrivalled driving dynamics. Rotos are built to move easily and safely on uneven terrains, in the mud and in
the snow, even fording streams. A low centre of gravity assures safe travel performance on all surfaces.
When you demand the most from Roto telehandlers, day by day you will find them among the safest and most
comfortable of working systems, giving their best in reliability, quality, profitability and, most of all, safety!
ROTO
winninG innOvATiOn
Many Roto models feature
hydropneumatic suspension which permits travel at
up to 40 kph, whilst ensuring
maximum driving comfort.
It also maximises stability
when operating on tyres, by
levelling the machine.
Four hydraulic, independently
controlled stabilisers ensure
a level, stable base for safe
lifting.
The standard hydraulic
quick-attach fork carriage
allows attachments to be
quickly interchanged using
controls in the cab.
A double-acting hydraulic
service fitted with quick
couplings provides the power for hydraulically-operated
equipment.
The
telescopic
boom
extension mechanism is
housed entirely within the
boom assembly, protecting
it from site damage and
ensuring maximum productivity.
The cab offers superb visibility
all around and, on some
models, can be tilted by
up to 18 degrees to offer
an unequalled loading view
at maximum height.
The load-bearing structures of the machine are surrounded by a solid ring of
steel, serving both structural and protective functions.
The continuous turret
rotation of MCSS models
is achieved through a revolutionary and exclusive electro-hydraulic central rotary
coupling.
The axles are designed and
manufactured by Merlo, exclusively for telescopic handler application.
The headlights are installed on the slewing turret,
ensuring optimum illumination of the work area, irrespective of turret rotation.
The cab
More space
for ergonomics and design
Working
has never before been such a pleasure
The cab is engineered to ensure comfort and driving safety.
Modern and sleek of design, it features the widest interior space in its sector. The steel frame complies with the
international ISO 3449 FOPS (Falling Object Protective Structure) standard.
The cab is fixed upon special elastic mounts, designed to reduce vibration and increase the driver’s productivity.
For the same reasons, mechanical and hydraulic control assemblies are placed directly on the chassis, with all main
services controlled electrically.
An exceptionally deep windscreen and very wide rear window – both openable – ensure excellent visibility of the
working area. Excellent upwards visibility is provided by the wide shock-resistant roof glazing and top models even
feature a tilting cab module for the ultimate load visibility at height!
ROTO

can also be installed on the left
armrest. Roto 600 and 400 series are equipped with a simpler
electro-mechanical proportional joystick (photo above).
A column-mounted Finger-Touch electrical control lever
allows the driver to reverse driving direction without taking
his hands off the steering wheel. The high/low travel speed
range selector is electrically controlled via push-buttons on
the Roto MCSS (photo right) or a rocker switch on Roto 600
and 400 series models (photo above).

The Merlin
system
Control at your fingertips
Technology
a generation ahead!
The Merlin system (Merlo Local Interactive Network) is used on all models of the MCSS range. It provides a
completely new way to electronically manage all the operating parameters of the machine.
The core of the system is a computer, which acquires and processes in real time all inputs and outputs from the
various working areas of the machine. The main operating conditions and all information necessary to the operator
are continuously displayed in an easy and intuitive format.
The Merlin system also manages all safety functions, and acts as a versatile and effective tool for advanced and
remote diagnostics.
Optionally, it can also serve as an antitheft system and immobiliser, providing a much higher degree of security
against unauthorised use.

The management software allows the
operator to select a variety of interactive
menus, providing access to the various
levels of the system.
1 - Main menu
Constantly shows the main operating
parameters of the machine, and allows
the operator to set the desired cab
temperature and to control auxiliary
systems.
2 - Attachment menu
It allows the operator to pre-select
the main types of interchangeable

6 - Screen adjustment menu
It allows the operator to set the screen
parameters, to suit ambient lighting
conditions.
OpeRATinG MenU. displAy OF The cenTRe OF GRAviTy
An exclusive feature of the Merlin
system is the real-time display (both
in numerical and graphical form)
of the centre of gravity position of
the machine and load, and how it
moves during machine operation.
The system also monitors the
2
distance between the load and
7
ground, distance between load
and machine centreline, and the
weight of the load being handled.
The operator can predefine the
working area of the machine by
3
presetting the limits for turret
1
rotation, boom lift angle and
5
extension.
When displaying the position
of the overall centre of gravity,
4
the machine stability limits are
determined,
depending
on
the position and extension of
the stabilisers and where the
load is positioned. In this way,
the operator can see when
the
machine
approaches
its operating limits and can
maximise machine performance.
The accuracy of the system is unaffected by the attachment
installed on the fork carriage (eg forks, winches, fly-jibs, hooks, and personnel baskets).

The slewing
turret
Working through 360°
Versatility
without limit
The maximum turret rotation of Roto telehandlers varies depending on the model. On Roto models of the MCSS
series the turret rotates continuously, while rotation is restricted to 600 degrees (±300°) on the 600 series, and to
415 degrees (±208°) on the 400 series.
Continuous rotation enhances machine performance and speeds up handling operations, because there is no need
for the turret to go back to its starting point. Continuous rotation is achieved through the use of a revolutionary Merlo
electro-hydraulic central rotary coupling.
All signals and commands required for turret rotation are transmitted through a single electronic channel, which is not
sensitive to the angular position of transmitter and receiver, eliminating electrical connections and all the limitations of
conventional sliding-contacts. This innovative system is reliable, air and watertight and very compact.
Two microprocessors, one on the turret and the other on the chassis, convert electrical signals into codified impulses,
and vice versa.
ROTO
slewing turret
The operator has also excellent
rear
visibility,
which is vital both during
turret slewing and while manoeuvring on site.
Any services being used in
a personnel platform can be
supplied from an electrical

or a quick-coupling air or
water hose, which can be
specified as options on the

Among several options that
enhance the productivity
and the versatility of telehandlers, is a boom mounted
video camera with cab

The telescopic
boom
Brilliant Simplicity
Now
everything is closer at hand
The telescopic boom is the core of every telehandler. It must be robust and strong - so as to ensure a good load
capacity and to be safely extended. But also very rigid, even at its maximum extension, so as to prevent undue
flexing and the ‘banana boom’ effect. Merlo engineers have successfully created a telescopic boom assembly that
has become a benchmark in the industry.
The boom sections are made of two U-shaped high-strength steel plates, longitudinally welded to each other along
or close to their neutral axis. A hydraulically powered extension mechanism is fully enclosed within the boom sections
and protected from site damage. The boom sections slide on special adjustable anti-friction pads, made of newgeneration polymers, and exclusively used by Merlo.
ROTO
The versatility of Roto telehandlers can
be further increased by an almost endless list of attachments and optional
equipment, which can be interchanged
on the fork carriage in only a few moments. The variety of applications is
vast: lifting materials, placing personnel
safely, bridge and viaduct maintenance,
boat handling, tunnel ring placing, and
cladding of both civil and industrial buil-
TelescOpic bOOM
dings being just a few examples.
It takes but a few moments to connect an
attachment to the fork carriage (Fig. 1).
The hitching and locking operations
are controlled directly from the cab,
while hydraulic quick-couplings make
connection of the hydraulic supply simple
and allows the machine to be immediately operational. Equipping the fork carriage with the hydraulic locking Tac-lock
system (Fig. 2), gives Roto telehandlers
an extraordinary competitive advantage
against conventional, manual hook-up
systems. A connection box is mounted
on the jib head for the selection of a variety of electrically controlled equipment.
A standard double-acting hydraulic
service with quick couplings is fitted
on the boom for the powering of hydraulic attachments (Fig. 3).

The boom extension mechanism, together with its
hydraulic and electrical components, is fitted completely
within the boom sections,
ensuring maximum protection and reliability.

MeRlO RAdiO cOnTROl sysTeM
A digital multifunctional radio control
allows the operator to remotely and
accurately control the machine,
thus ensuring safety in even the most
challenging situations.
This recently introduced innovative
Merlo technology is certified by the main
European bodies and allows all machine
functions to be proportionally controlled.
The radio transmission system uses the
latest Frequency hopping concept,
ensuring high immunity to interference,
delivering maximum transmission safety.
The Merlo radio control is bi-directional:
it both sends commands to the
machine and receives information on
its operating status (eg. engine running
or not, fuel level, stability condition,
overload, etc.), thus performing a realtime remote diagnostic ability.
Stabilisers
Stability means always keeping
one’s feet on the ground!
Stability
is standard
Four hydraulically operated stabilisers ensure that Roto telehandlers are stable on any terrain.
The operator can configure the stabilisers to suit the type of terrain and the slope, so as to always work in maximum
safety. Uniquely, MCSS models can be operated safely with their stabilisers only partially extended, permitting
working close to kerbs or walls, or in very narrow streets. Irrespective of the stabiliser footprint, the operating
envelope resulting from the stability polygon they create ensures maximum operating safety.
All Roto models can be easily levelled by operating the stabilisers in pairs. Lateral and longitudinal tilt can be
separately adjusted.
On some models, the four stabilisers can be automatically and simultaneously retracted to their fully stowed position
with a single button press. When retracted, the stabilisers are contained within the machine periphery.

MCSS. Continuous Control of Stability
When Roto MCSS telehandlers are operating on their stabilisers, the continuous
stability control system (MCSS: Merlin
Continuous Slew Safety) constantly monitors the forces acting on the four stabiliser pads.
The system uses these values to automatically calculate the position of the
overall centre of gravity of machine and
load. From that, the microprocessor
A
can determine the level of stability at
that moment. If stability is less than that
required for safe operation, any further
aggravating movements are immediately blocked.
The calculation algorithm is valid irrespective of stabiliser extension.
This allows the operator to place the
stabilisers as he requires, depending on
the task; the load diagram will be au-
B
tomatically and dynamically adjusted to
suit the stabiliser position chosen by the
operator.
The system checks machine stability automatically and continuously, so that the
operator is free to focus on his work, because the load envelope is created dynamically depending on the position of
the overall centre of gravity, thus ensuring maximum safety in any condition.
C
The MCSS system allows the machine to operate even when the stabilisers are placed in an unusual configuration. Whatever
the stability footprint, the system dynamically creates a virtual working envelope within which the machine is fully operational.
Whatever attachment is fitted, the maximum load diagram achievable for that configuration can be fully utilised (including
personnel work platforms).
When the stabilisers are fully extended (Fig. A), the working area is circular and ensures full machine operation throughout turret
rotation. The working area is automatically limited by the onboard computer when, depending on the operator’s needs, stabilisers
are unequally extended (eg. one stabiliser is only partially extended, as shown in Fig. B).
Another limiting condition occurs when one stabiliser is not touching the ground, eg. due to collapse of the ground under the
stabiliser pad (Fig. C). In this event, too, the working area is also automatically limited.
THE ENGINE
POWER
IN ACTION
Greater efficiency
on site
The telehandlers of all Roto series are powered by four or six cylinder turbo diesel engines, compliant with Tier 3
emission standards, providing ample available torque throughout their operating range. A prompt response to a
power demand is crucial for these machines, which need power in the most diverse of conditions.
The engine is mounted low down on the right-hand side of the chassis for greater accessibility and safer servicing, as
technicians can work with their feet resting firmly on the ground, with all mechanical and hydraulic assemblies close
at hand. Merlo was the first telehandler company to adopt this layout, which has since become an industry norm.
The transmission is hydrostatic and utilises variable displacement motor and pump, ensuring high performance and a
wide control range at full power. The maximum travel speed is as high as 40 kph on some models.

The hydROsTATic TRAnsMissiOn
The hydrostatic transmission, which
features an independent hydraulic
circuit, has a high dynamic braking
effect, so that the use of brakes can
be minimised.
Oil flow, pressured by a hydraulic pump,
is sent to the hydrostatic motor which
then turns it into mechanical power.
This power is then transferred to the
axles through a gearbox and propeller
shafts.
The driving speed varies depending on
the pressure applied to the accelerator
pedal, without the necessity to change
gears as in conventional mechanical
transmissions.

AXLES
MASTER
OF EVERY ROUTE
Exclusive
strength and reliability
The drop portal axles, designed and manufactured in-house by Merlo, increase both driving satisfaction and machine
stability on any terrain. The drive train layout developed by Merlo engineers reduces both noise and pitch during
braking and acceleration, improving driving comfort and load retention.
Permanent four-wheel drive allows the machine to move easily even in the most treacherous situations.
The rear axle is freely oscillating, adapting to unevenness even in extreme off-road conditions and ensuring maximum
tyre grip even on steep slopes, by reducing wheel spin.
If necessary, an optional fully-locking rear differential is available.
AXles
ROTO
AXles
The drop portal axles (picture above), which equip most Roto
models, feature a crown and pinion wheel reduction hub.
Their concept places the main axle body above the centreline
of the wheel hub, thus providing great ground clearance.
Roto 40.30 MCSS and 60.24 MCSS models feature axles
with epicyclic reduction hubs (picture right) designed for
heavy duty applications.
All wheel bRAkinG
servo-assisted hydraulic service disk brakes, with floating
callipers, are fitted to each hub. A dual-circuit hydraulic
layout is utilised to guarantee maximum safety.
An automatic parking brake is applied automatically
when the engine is switched off (or via manual selection
of the appropriate switch). An independent, spring-operated
disk brake, acts upon the main transmission propeller shaft.
Axle oscillation enhances
off-road performance of the
machine.
Off-road performance is
particularly impressive for
its class, due to the high
angles of attack and departure.

speed, without requiring any adjustment by the driver.
The perfect combination of hydraulics and electronics within the suspension results in an active system that
ensures the best possible exploitation of the telehandler’s performance, while offering the operator unrivalled
comfort and safety.
ROTO
Hydropneumatic suspension
The automatic suspension
mode is ideal for off-road
driving and short transits

The suspension can be locked in any desired position,
so as to ensure the necessary stability and safety
during any lifting operations
whilst the machine is used
‘on-tyres’.
The controls allow the operator to set all operating
parameters.
Selecting the manual suspension setting allows
the operator to continuously

up to ±9° (±16%) and the
longitudinal tilt by up to ±5°
(±9%).

a cable-operated trolley.
It can be operated with the jib horizontal,
as a conventional tower crane, or as a
jib crane, in which case it can deliver a
total lift height of 31.7 m.
• The structure can be folded back
along the main machine boom,
permitting easy road travel and the
use of the Roto in its conventional
telehandler roles.

A breeding ground for ideas and the beating heart of
advanced research. This is
where today’s concepts
and plans turn into tomorrow’s technologies, as well
as into strong machines that
are impressive when they are

dynamic crash tests, falling
object protection and structural strength tests expose
all machine systems to stress
factors. A Roto telehandler
must pass all these tests and
many others before being manufactured in mass production
and be delivered to sites all
over the world.
