Quebec City, Que. – Manulift is introducing the Roto 70.24 S Plus to the Canadian market for the first time.

“We’re very excited to add the Roto 70.24 S Plus to our fleet. With a 7-ton load capacity, it’s definitely powerful, but more so it reflects the pure impressive R&D efforts at Merlo, which delivers unequal productivity, precision and safety,” said Martin Drolet, president at Manulift. 

Boasting enhanced performance and lifting power, the 70.24 S Plus offers the industrial and construction markets a new high-end telehandler to complement their current product offerings in the Canadian market.

The new Roto provides a high maximum load capacity of 15, 430 pounds (7,000 kilograms) and 79 feet (24.2 metres) boom height to help tackle projects in all terrains and conditions. The 70.24 S Plus offers a powerful FPT NEF45 engine with 170 HP and a maximum speed of 40 kilometres per hour and stands as one of Merlo’s most powerful units in Canada.

Merlo’s Roto Range allows the machine to rotate a full 360 degrees without having to reposition the unit. It also features a 20-degree tilt cab designed to give the operator a continuous view of the boom and its load.

Safety

The Advanced Safety System displays the telehandler’s parameters in real-time, including the stabilizer position, boom extension angle, turret position, carriage rotation, load position and weight.
