Merlo adds dealer

Mountainview Equipment Company, with locations across Idaho and in Washington, is adding Merlo telehandlers to its product line.

“In researching adding another line to Mountainview’s line up, we found Merlo telehandlers to be the most complementary to our current equipment line up,” says Bill George, Mountainview Equipment Company sales manager. “We were looking for equipment that would make material handling for our customers easier and safer. Merlo’s Turbofarmer line of telehandlers pack a lot of power and nimbleness into every machine. Our customers will appreciate the versatility these machines will bring to their operations.”

Mountainview Equipment Company chose the TF38.10 with a lift height of 31 feet and maximum operating capacity of 8,400 pounds and the TF 42.7 telehandler with a lift height of 24 feet 7 inches and maximum operating capacity of 9,250 pounds. It also added the P27.6PLUS model that is quite compact and easy to operate. While it is the smallest of the Merlo telehandlers, it offers 19 feet 4 inches of lift height and 6,000 pound maximum capacity.

Along with expanding its agriculture offerings, Mountainview has added the Merlo P40.17PLUS, a heavy-duty telehandler with independent front stabilizers. 

“While they are an agriculture-oriented dealership, Mountainview brought in the P40.17PLUS to take advantage of the need for construction telehandlers in all its markets, such as the booming city of Boise, Idaho,” says Austin Bailey, AMS-Merlo sales manager. “With the P40.17PLUS being one of the most popular models from both sales and rental aspects, this model made the most sense for them to begin their expansion into the construction market.”

For more than 50 years, Mountainview Equipment Company has proven to be an award-winning full-service dealership in the hay and forage and dairy markets. Delivering to customers the products they need to make their businesses successful, Mountainview takes great pride in also supplying outstanding service and parts.

Mountainview Equipment Company has four locations: Meridan, Homedale and Jerome Idaho; and Sunnyside, Washington.
