Watch The Merlin Major Work Its Magic

Reliable and Smooth

Virtually invisible in operation, this low profile vehicle turntable has an almost magic effect. The American Turntable Merlin Major is designed to allow vehicles as small as the Mini and as large as a 5500lb 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 Major is always moving. The Turntable is powered by any 120volt outlet by a cable that is provided. However, if there is no 120 volt available, the turntable can be easily powered by the car's battery using a simple 24V to 120 volt inverter.

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.
