2 Tier 4 Final Engines

The Turbofarmer "Heavy duty" range is equipped with tow Tier 4 Final engines: 125kW/170HP.

Merlo Hydrostatic Transmission

The Merlo 50.8T has a hydrostatic transmission with EPD (Eco Power Drive) as standard. Merlo's hydrostatic transmissions are designed to improve precision, safety, and ease of use. The Merlo 50.8T EPD can reduce fuel consumption by 18% giving a real yearly saving.

Self Accelerating Joystick

The self-accelerating Joystick is adopted as the standard, through which more speed of the boom's hydraulic movements is possible. This helps optimize the performance of the Merlo 50.8T telehandler. The system activates beyond the threshold of 20% of the movements of the joystick.

Merlo's Continuous Variable Transmission

The Merlo 50.8T telehandler has a CVTronic transmission that follows Merlo's traditions in the hydrostatic field and ensures smooth acceleration without interrupting torque from 0 to 40 hm/hr. At low works speeds, the 50.8T's axles function in conjunction to provide maximum torque, with an increase of + 12% with respect to conventional hydrostatic transmissions.

Additional Features


The Merlo 50.8T telehandler has a mechanical PTO 540/1000 that can be conveniently selected from the cab. The towing hook has a 21 ton capacity with pneumatic and hydraulic braking.


The CDC system of the Merlo 50.8 automatically recognizes the attachment fitted and consequently calibrates its performance in relation to specific load charts. The operator can then check at any time the dynamic equilibrium of the vehicle thanks to the led screen or traffic light on the front upright.


The Merlo 50.8 Turbofarmer has a boom cartridge extension system and the hydraulic hoses are hidden inside the boom. This patented solution is still easy to access if maintenance is needed. The Merlo 50.8TT also has a tac-lock hydraulic attachment clamping system that's available from the cab.
