Reliable and Smooth

When you need to need to showcase a larger vehicle, The American Turntable Merlin General will get the job done. Virtually invisible in operation, this low profile vehicle turntable has an almost magic effect. The Merlin General is designed to allow vehicles as large as a 10,000lb 4x4 truck to spin just hovering slightly off the ground while hiding underneath.

It creates an elegant, compact display, is extremely portable requiring no floor fixing, and can be used almost anywhere, even outdoors.

The Merlin Generalis always moving. The Turntable is powered by any 120 volt outlet by a cable that is provided. However, if there is no 120 volt available, the turntable can be easily powered by the Truck's battery using a simple 24V to 120 volt inverter (not supplied). The turntable is fitted with an outlet that spins with the table to allow additional lighting or electric devices used to highlight the vehicle's features.

Safety is paramount, which is why the turntable, running at .6 RPM, has been designed to stop immediately upon the slightest of obstructions. The unit can typically be set up by two people in about 45 minutes.

Auto Dealers...Perfect for your showroom or off-site sale

If your salesmen aren't moving around the lot to move vehicles, bring in The Merlin General "the silent salesman." He just sits there like the rest of your sales team, but you don't have to keep an eye on him, because he moves cars all day without even being seen.

The American Turntable Merlin General will sell for you in the showroom, out in the lot, at tent sales or car shows, inside malls, or out at the county fair...You get the picture.

Vehicles are more attractive when in motion, and The Merlin General doesn't require any training. Just give him power and he'll give you the power to sell more.

Car Enthusiasts...The General Turns Heads & Your Vehicle

You've invested a great deal of time, money, or both into your collector automobile. You enjoy turning heads as you drive down the road in your precious metal machine. You love it even more when someone walks up for a closer look.

The eye is naturally attracted to movement, and The Merlin General will demand the attention your automobile desires.

Instead of gawkers walking around your vehicle at the next car show to check it out from every angle, turn more heads and protect your investment as your collector car spins on The American Turntable Merlin General
