The Merlo TF30.9 telehandler is the ideal compromise between performance and size. It offers a maximum capacity of 6,600 lbs. with a 28’3” lift that easily handles 2,400 lbs.

Powerful, yet compact


The TF30.9 has a 115 HP 4 Cylinder Turbo Diesel with hydrostatic transmission. 4WD and three steering modes ensure this compact machine -14’3” x 6’10” x 7’0” – can easily maneuver even in the most restricted job environments.

More than forks

Though equipped with standard forks, the ground engaging no-flex boom expands the productivity of this compact telehandler by accepting a number of other attachments such as buckets (up to 2.5 cu/yd), clamps, hooks, and jibs to name just a few.

Designed for operator efficiency and comfort

This compact machine has one of the largest cabs within its class, thoughtfully designed to assist operators in working smarter and longer. The wide split door leads to ergonomic seating, an intuitive dashboard with onboard diagnostics, and the electronic joystick. Machine shuttle is on the joystick and the steering column. Heat and AC are standard. The HEPA air filtration, placed on the side of the chassis, ensures optimal air flow throughout the machine. The perfected 360° view, thanks to the low pivot boom, guarantees an operator will have the load and boom operation in view at all times.

The compact, yet not surprisingly powerful TF30.9 delivers high performance to every industry that needs versatility when it comes to material handling.
