1 completed the adventure from the Guinness Book of World Record Yesterday morning at 9 am, was celebrated in Pirkkala (FIN) Leo s successful journey towards the record Friday, 06/13/ Yesterday morning at 9 am Leo Terqujeff has reached Pirkkala, where his Guinness World Record achieved on board of the Merlo Panoramic P 25.6 after traveling 4300 km in 33 days was celebrated. After five weeks pushing on relentlessly, Leo Tergujeff and the Merlo P 25.6 telehandler reached the destination, Pirkkala, approximately 200Km north of Helsinki, the capital of Finland. It was the longest trip ever travelled by a telehandler that earned Leo and the P25.6 a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for "the longest trip on a telescopic handler". This important achievement testifies to the outstanding reliability of Merlo telehandlers, not to mention Leo's tenacity and spirit of adventure. Leo Tergujeff (for his friends Manne) is one of the people who best expresses the Merlo spirit and has turned his passion into a job. After-sales service manager at Rotator, a Merlo importer in Finland for nearly thirty years, he's an expert, esteemed engineer who fell in love with his job and Merlo telehandlers to the point that he even had his love engraved on his skin. In fact, he has the Merlo logo tattooed on his left shoulder, testifying to his bond with his job, which has become a true passion. However, even for Leo the time has come to retire, but since passions don't retire, he decided to celebrate this milestone in his life with this undertaking aboard a "Merlo". Thus the adventure began on April 28th from Italy, specifically from Cuneo, where Merlo SPA is located. During his 28 years of work, Leo had often been to the Group's plants for training courses or to visit customers, but this time it was much more emotional. This stop represented the end of a personal and professional evolution at Merlo and the beginning of a voyage that in just over a month had him cross half of Europe: Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark and Sweden, finally arriving in Finland on May 26th. In each country he went through, Leo visited the local Merlo importer's team to share memories and the emotions the trip evoked. The telehandler chosen for the enterprise was the P 25.6 which, with its 1.80 m width and 1.92 m height, is the most compact in the Merlo range but at the same time offers the largest cab in the category, guaranteeing top-of-the-range comfort. This telehandler is also the only one in its category to guarantee a travel speed of 36 km/h; this characteristic proved to be fundamental to the successful outcome of the undertaking, making it possible to go the distance in less
2 time than was expected. The P25.6 is equipped with the Merlo hydrostatic transmission. It guarantees top performance, high driving precision, safety thanks to active breaking and unbeatable reliability. All the key technologies in determining the performances of Merlo telehandlers are in fact developed within the group so that tailored and avant-garde solutions are offered for each product. This way, it is possible to offer products with unique characteristics and performance compared to the competition on the market, as is demonstrated by undertakings like this one, or for example, by the awards received at the last Agritechnica in Hanover ( the Merlo Hybrid technology, Model of the Year for the new Turbofarmer range, Meilensteine for the new Multifarmers). All models in the range benefit from this top level of technological excellence, including the P25.6, which is very compact in size so that it may also be used in closed environments with limited space, and has a cab that is the widest in its category, with 1010 mm of external width. As for reliability, just consider the more than 4000 km travelled by Leo without maintenance or repairs. The fact that the P25.6 travelled long distances without ever stopping shows how the hydrostatic transmission not only guarantees precise operation and easy driving, but at the same time ensures reliability and resistance even during road transport. The trip was approved by the Guinness World Record which requires strict monitoring of the route travelled. One of the requirements was that the route being travelled by Leo was traceable in any given moment. In this case, too, the required technology was available within Merlo Group. Indeed, the Merlomobility system was mounted on the P25.6, developed and finetuned by Movimatica (the group company that deals with solutions for infomobility and telemetry) which allowed the mapping of each of the machine's movements with a data protocol so secure that it could be used to certify the Guinness record. In addition to this use, Merlomobility allowed constant monitoring of the P25.6's telemetry, detecting the operating functions, status of the systems, travel speed, proper functioning of the engine and hydrostatic, hydraulic and engine temperatures. A real guardian angel that watched over Leo's voyage.

8 The P 25.6 and the other products in the Merlo range The very small size of the model enables its use in tight spaces or with little space and makes the P 25.6 the ideal solution for numerous fields of application. Starting with farming and breeding, this telehandler makes it possible to access even the smallest constructions (for example, aviculture). Its compactness turns out to be a winning card even in the construction field, where the P 25.6 manages to work in all types of construction sites, even when there is very little space and other machines can't get in. Compactness: 1.80 m in width and 1.92 m in height Comfort: the widest cab in its category (internal width 995 mm, external width 1010 mm) Versatility countless equipment designed and made in-house Speed: The fastest in the category with 36 km/h Towing type-approval as an agricultural tractor C hook for towing up to 5 Tons.
9 The P 25.6 is part of the Compacts range together with models P 28.8 (maximum capacity 2800 kg and lifting height 8.2 m) and the P 32.6 (maximum capacity 3200 kg and lifting height 6.4 m). The other Merlo ranges are: Turbofarmer, Multifarmer, Panoramic and Roto. THE NEW TURBOFARMER II RANGE Merlo just launched the new range of Turbofarmers on the market (photo, opposite). This is not just a simple revamp, but a completely new range that introduces technology and innovation important enough to convince the jury at Agritechnica in Hanover, the strictest and most experienced in the agricultural sector. The new models are part of the Medium Duty family, the heart of the agricultural range, with yields of 38 and 42 quintals and operating heights of 7 and 10 metres. Thanks to the latest technology and the experienced gained in recent years, Merlo is significantly improving the performance of the previous models with improved charts on the entire series, establishing a new benchmark in the category. First of all, the new Turbofarmers excel in their telescopic performance, meaning their ability to move and lift loads. The new range will come with two engines designed for the different needs in the field of. The first is a 122 HP engine that does not need a DPF filter for Ad Blue, with considerable benefits in terms of reduced operating costs, and the second is a 156 HP engine which allows you to have all the power necessary for the most demanding operations. The reduction of operating costs is another central point in the development of Merlo machines. In fact, in the new Turbofarmer series, Merlo is introducing Eco Power Drive (EPD), already available on some models, as a standard for the whole range. EPD allows electronic control of the thermal engine, which increases performance and reduces consumption. The result is an 18% reduction in consumption, and when multiplied by an average use of 1000 hours per year, it turns into a saving of about 4000 annually. Merlo offers M CDC safety control as a standard. This patented Merlo system helps ensure safety standards above
10 the current standard EN The M CDC automatically recognises the attachment mounted on the telescopic boom and, based on the machine's operating parameters, redesigns the load chart, ensuring maximum safety in every situation and boosting the telehandler's performance, which ensures speed, productivity and savings of time and money. Even in terms of versatility, the new range offers truly stateof-the-art-technology. For example, the mechanical PTO (available on all models in the new Turbofarmer series) allows machining that was previously precluded in this category. Thanks to the mechanical power take-off, the new Turbofarmers will be able to use all the attachments, making it possible to work on farms with a single machine, with significant savings in time and operating costs. Another technology that will give Merlo more exceptional versatility is the MCVTronic. For those who need to tow a trailer or perform heavy machining with a telehandler, the new top of the range Turbofarmer models will be equipped with the unique Merlo MCVTronic continuously variable transmission. The 2-speed hydrostatic transmission that allows acceleration from 0 to 40 km/h without stopping due to gear changes or drops in torque. The new system makes it possible to obtain a 12% increase in torque at low speed. This allows excellent performance in ascent, climbing, towing and for building silage trenches. The new series will also offer all the technology currently present on the various Turbofarmer models, such as the suspended cab, transferring, levelling and the standard M CDC safety system.
11 Merlomobility, monitors, manages and surveils To record Leo's route Merlomobility was used, the innovative management and remote control system of Merlo and non- Merlo fleets, employing the GPS and GPRS wireless network. This technology created by Movimatica (Merlo Group company) ended up being fundamental to the certification of the record and to monitoring Leo and the status of the machine. Thanks to the precision of this system, which records the actual movements when the engine is on, the Guinness World Record committee used the data recorded by MerloMobility to approve the record. This is a unique technology developed within Merlo Group that allows the information gathered to be customised according to customer needs and every operational, geolocation or diagnostic parameter to be monitored. Thanks to this system the machine communicates through the GPS and GPRS wireless network directly with the operations centre. The user can access the information on his/her machines via web through a protected account both on PC or hand-held computer or IOS or Android smartphone. Merlomobility is the result of research and development carried out to make an ad hoc system for the Merlo customer's needs and is entirely built into Merlo telehandlers.
12 Thanks to these characteristics, the system developed by Merlo Group makes it possible to read on-board computer data, giving access to all of the machine's telemetry. Merlomobility thus concentrates anti-theft, logistics and telemetry functions into a sole system, guaranteed by Merlo. Fuel Fuel Virtual instrument Operating parameters Route chart This technology allows for the planning, monitoring and scheduling of trips and the activities of one's fleet, optimising its use and trips. It also lowers maintenance costs and lengthens machine life thanks to the signals that tell you when to carry out periodic checks and point out anomalies rapidly. Model information Route chart Alarm Necessary maintenance warning The anti-theft system allows the user to monitor the machine at any time, and when required, it also provides a surveillance service managed through the authorised prefectorial operations centre.
