Perfectly blending class-leading performance with flexibility, speed and process innovation, the pioneering range has been developed to meet the exacting requirements of today’s urban construction sites. Each product is compact, fuel-efficient and multi-functioning.

Mecalac MCR
– Unique in the marketplace, the MCR can switch from compact tracked excavator (with a top speed of 10 km/h) to loader (with 360° rotation capability) within seconds. Available in three model variations – 6MCR (0.49m2 bucket capacity), 8MCR (0.53m2 bucket capacity) and 10MCR (0.75m2 bucket capacity) – each unit is powered by a 55kW engine.

Mecalac MWR – Perfectly blending stability and compactness, the MWR adopts an innovative wheeled chassis. Four models are available – 7MWR, 9MWR, 11MWR and 15MWR. Incorporating a closed hydrostatic transmission system, each model is fast and nimble, with both two and four-wheel steer (crab option) available. Alongside boasting direct entry into the cab, the MWR range can be refuelled from the floor.

Mecalac MTX – The MTX is a combined excavator, loader, forklift and tool carrier in a single machine. Equipped with a variable-adjustment boom (with offset), the unit offers an optimum working envelope. The articulated undercarriage allows for a low centre of gravity and class-leading stability, while a 140 tilting angle enhances manoeuvrability. The 12MTX is also equipped with Mecalac’s CONNECT quick coupler, which is integrated directly into the dipper stick.

Commenting on the roll-out, Gregg Horne, General Manager at Mecalac Construction Equipment UK Ltd (MCE), commented: “Introducing Groupe Mecalac’s excavator range to the UK market comes as part of a long-term corporate strategy to meet changing sector requirements and provide innovative solutions to support operators nationwide.

“Each model is proven, flexible and designed to perform perfectly in challenging urban environments. We’re confident that the range will be well-received by professionals across the country, who recognise the benefits of embracing innovation to minimise job time and improve performance.”
