Underground Machinery Rental now Merlo DealerApplied Machinery Sales
ROCK HILL, SC (October 28, 2021) —Underground Machinery Rental, headquartered in St. Louis, MO has added the Merlo line of telehandlers and Rotos to its fleet of specialized equipment utilized by the utility and construction markets across the USA.
“Underground Machinery Rental was started in 2019 when we saw a need to fill the machinery gap that the utility and underground construction industry was experiencing,” said Justin Vermillion, Underground partner and VP of Sales and Operations. “Contractors need a reliable option for short or long-term underground machinery rentals to get projects completed on time and efficiently. This is what Underground Machinery Rentals delivers.”
Underground Machinery Rental has developed a reputation for consistently supplying up-to-date and reliable equipment. Their current rental fleet includes DitichWitch®, fiber blowers and pullers, and their signature amphibious off-road industrial vehicle, the Fat Truck.
After listening to customer requests, Vermillion and his team realized they needed to expand their offerings, and by extension, their market “to include a line of complementary equipment to sell as well as rent.” he said. “We became intrigued by Merlo telehandlers. We were looking for machines that delivered a broad range of operating capacities and capabilities.”
“Underground Machinery has developed a laser-sharp focus on their industry,” said Bill Grundy, AMS-Merlo Territory manager. “They did their research and chose Merlo. These telehandlers fit their industry and product focus.”
Recently, Underground took delivery of the Merlo High Capacity P50.18HM and the Roto 70.24 SPLUS with its 360° turret rotation. With just these two machines Underground has already expanded its customer base to include tree care and construction businesses in their area.
“We like that these machines accept a broad range of attachments,” Vermillion said, “especially slewing platforms and the Woodcracker®. Both of these accessories fit the needs of our customer demographic. The Roto, with either attachment, makes powerline work cleaner and safer.”
All Merlos are available for direct purchase and rent. See the full line of available Merlo telehandlers by visiting undergroundmachineryrental.com.
