- McHale Plant Sales will exhibit six machines at the forthcoming FTMTA Show – three Komatsu units (one excavator and two wheel loaders) and three Merlo units
Komatsu models will include their popular, short tail-swing PC138US -11 excavator, currently the single most popular model in the Komatsu range. With it will be two wheel loaders – an already familiar WA100M-8 model now present in many contractor fleets and, with it, a larger 19-tonnes WA380-8 unit with its bigger volume bucket…a machine that McHale Plant Sales director, Denis McGrath says “will appeal to contractors seeking added capacity and greater productivity.”
From Merlo, items on show will include the largest, highest-spec and ever-popular Multifarmer MF44.9CS-170-CVTronic model. With it will be the proven Turbofarmer TF35.7-140 and – for those seeking a zero-emissions machine for indoor working – a Merlo E-worker EW25.5-90 telehandler.
“In selecting our line-up of models, we have taken account of the pressure that many contractors are now facing – pressure from demand and the corresponding pressure to handle greater volumes, achieve higher productivity, and faster turnaround from job to job,” McGrath said.
“For those contractors looking beyond harvesting for growth and expansion opportunities, we will display one of our top-selling and most versatile excavators for handling such tasks as drainage, pipe laying, land reclamation and so forth,” he added.
“For those working in situations where noise pollution and noxious emissions controls are factors – indoor applications like warehouse working, grain storage, feed handling and the like – we will display the attractive Merlo E-Worker with its choice of attachments and class-beating lift, weight and reach versatility,” McGrath added.
