Contractors_World_Magazines_Vertikal-DaysContractors_World_Magazines_Merlo_Mpr15-004Merlo show rapid transit RT Access

Merlo’s unique MPR Concept was shown for the first time in the UK, at Vertikal Days 27/28th June.

Due to go into production in mid-summer, the MPR series is fully compliant with EN 280 standards for powered access machines. 

It combines the benefits of a conventional self-propelled work platform with the off-road mobility of a telehandler, and roadability of a truck-mounted platform. Performance and safety are ensured in even the most challenging situations.


  • Electronically controlled hydrostatic transmission with 40 km/h max speed
  • Permanent four-wheel drive with 3-mode steering on all wheels
  • Drive from the cab or platform, boom raised or lowered
  • Selectable max capacity 1,000 kg - 6 persons / 500 kg 3 persons
  • Maximum working height 15.7 m
  • Maximum operating forward reach 10.3 m or 11.8 m (500 kg capacity)
  • Platform slews through ±275º on its vertical axis
  • Hydropneumatic suspension with automatic frame levelling
  • Deutz Tier 3, 4-cylinder turbo Diesel engine, 74.9 kW (102 HP)
  • Load-Sensing hydraulic system

A main feature of the development is a purpose-designed self-propelled rough terrain chassis, fitted with a cab, telescopic boom and big 4 m x 2 m platform.

This concept provides the safety of eliminating conventional scaffoldings and mobile scaffold towers without the extended travel time of traditional self-propelled platforms. It also overcomes the limited off-road performance of truck-mounted platforms, significantly reducing time and labour costs.

Contractors_World_Magazines_Snorkel_A62JRTUK debut for latest Snorkel Boom

Snorkel’s new A62JRT articulated boom lift made its UK debut at Vertikal Days 2012.

The A62JRT is a self-propelled articulated boom, providing a maximum platform height of 19 m (62 ft) and will go into production later this year. Replacing the Snorkel AB60JRT, it offers improved drive and lift capabilities - particularly ‘up-and-over’ clearance - and a 100% reduction in tail swing compared to the older model.

Designed for rough terrain applications, it shares a common chassis with Snorkel’s 14 m (46 ft) and 20 m (66 ft) telescopic booms, for easier service and repair work.

Maximum platform height is 18.8 m (61 ft 8 ins) and up-and-over clearance at 9 m (29 ft 6 ins). It also has the largest platform cage in its class of 2.4 m x 1.0 m (96 ins x 39 ins) and the most compact length when stowed for transport, of 8.5 m (27 ft 10 ins).

Along with the new lift, Snorkel is exhibiting aerial lifts representative of its extensive range.
