MERLO wins PLANTWORX Innovation Safety Award

Merlo’s innovative and patented M CDC (Merlo Dynamic Load Control) has been awarded the PLANTWORX Innovation Safety Award at the PLANTWORX Innovation Awards in London last week.
Merlo Dynamic Load Control (M CDC)
Safety remains the prime Merlo objective and the M CDC system, which is standard on all agricultural Turbofarmer machines and is also gradually being introduced on the construction range, takes a totally new approach to load control. The system identifies the weight and position of the payload, compares both to a virtual ‘load chart’ and calculates the ‘stability index’.  As the stability index rises, audio/visual alarms and a final hydraulic lock act to prevent a forward overturn.
In January 2013, M CDC appeared in the Farmer’s Guardian HOT 50 awards and in late 2012, M CDC had also won the highly acclaimed innovation award at International Show, EIMA proving Merlo goes beyond EN15000 requirements for safety. Merlo will be launching Merlo Dynamic Load Control (M CDC) on its Construction range at PLANTWORX in May. Merlo will have two stands at PLANTWORX, a static stand together with a demonstration stand including a ‘Drivers Challenge’.
