Mecalac to showcase latest range at the Executive Hire Show


Mecalac Construction Equipment UK Ltd, a global leader in compact equipment design and manufacture, will showcase a number of models from its industry-leading product portfolio at the 2019 Executive Hire Show (Ricoh Arena, Coventry; 6-7 February).

Alongside the all-new 6MDX cabbed site dumper, Mecalac will exhibit its updated MBR-71 pedestrian roller and TV-1200 tandem compaction roller on Stand J22. Each model has been designed from the ground-up to provide operators with a reliable and robust hire solution.

6MDX – The perfect blend of stylish design and impressive functionality, the 6MDX sets the standards in site safety. With a six-tonne payload, operating weight of 4,950kg and top speed of 28kph, operators benefit from short cycle times, outstanding manoeuvrability and best-in-class productivity.

A highly-efficient 3.4L, 55kw Perkins 854 IIIB-compliant engine generates 424Nm of torque, while DPF exhaust after-treatment (with passive regeneration) meets international emissions standards. Additional features include next generation Power Brakes (driven by the main hydraulic system), which deliver improved feel, alongside all-new dashboard design and industry-leading safety credentials.

MBR-71 – Specifically designed for the compaction of granular and asphalt materials, the single-drum MBR-71 is perfectly suited to applications including highway repair, footpaths, cycle lanes, playgrounds and landscaping environments. Its proven design provides superb balance, ensuring best-in-class manoeuvrability in tight spaces.

For 2019, the rental-tough roller has been redesigned to incorporate hydrostatic drive, alongside a series of additional engineering updates. Removing the clutch and belt arrangement results in fewer maintenance requirements, while a 35% increase in water tank volume has significantly increased working range. Moving operating controls to the handle will ensure safer and more ergonomically-friendly operation, complementing a new ‘spring applied’ hydraulic release handbrake, which activates when pressure is lost to maximise operator safety.

 TV1200 – A proven favourite for rental professionals worldwide, the TV1200 is arguably one of the toughest tandem rollers on the market. Alongside a rugged design to withstand rental conditions, the model’s all-new vacuum formed bonnet, revised side arm, water-cooled engine and mass exciter system guarantee outstanding performance to reduce the number of required passes.

Full specification includes a drum width of 1,000mm, operating weight of 2,925kg, static liner load of 12.18kg/cm and VPM of 2,880/3,360. Two frequencies provide enhanced versatility, while an optional pressure-fed water sprinkler delivers greater flow regulation for improved cleaning capability.

Paul Macpherson, UK Sales and Marketing Director at Mecalac CEUK, commented: “As one of the UK’s most renowned rental exhibitions, we’re looking forward to showcasing our latest products, updates and equipment technologies at the 2019 Executive Hire Show. Being part of the show and provides the perfect platform to share exciting plans for the future.”
