Mecalac Introduces New Range of Compact Loaders
Published: 10/10, 2022
The new Mecalac MCL range includes six models from 1.74t to 2.85t with four models coming with a long boom (standard) to meet the needs of the agricultural segment. The MCL2 has a small size and wheeled motor transmission to provide agility. Though the smallest machine in the MCL range, the MCL2 has all the features of larger equipment. Its modern and ergonomic operator’s station is protected by a canopy and is also available in a cabbed version.
Likewise, the MCL4 provides an excellent compromise between compactness and lifting performance. With its 24.7-hp (18.4kW) engine, it is also the ideal machine for rental fleets that require a durable and high-performance machine. Its low transport weight also allows the machine to be transported on a road trailer.
The MCL6 comes with many of the best features of the MCL4 but with even more power. Its 48.2-hp (36kW) motor allows it to reach and maintain high speeds on the road. Its high hydraulic flow and its speed of execution allow it to considerably increase productivity on worksites. MCL8 has been designed to provide power, high dumping height and lifting capacity. It is also at ease in all circumstances whether it is for loading, handling or driving hydraulic attachments.
Two models with short boom to meet the needs of the construction segment are the MCL4+ /and MCL6+. Amongst the construction focused features, the short arm versions are designed to offer an increased tipping load. All the machines will be available in three versions: canopy, canopy with foldable top or cab version, and all with a wide selection of attachments.
The new MCL range can be equipped with Mecalac’s latest comfort and driver assistance technologies. These include M-Drive, which turns the machine into a tool carrier with the facility to control the speed of the machine with the foot pedal at a selected engine rpm. Speed control helps to redefine the speed range that can be used via the foot pedal as required (i.e., choosing a lower speed will allow the operator to do more precise work). MyMecalac Connected Services maximizes the use of machines thanks to optimised and accessible machine data, reduced downtimes, and better fleet management. Finally, Start-up Digicode provides a keypad that enables the better control and use of the machine.
