New Revotruck from Mecalac
Published: 10/10, 2022
Almost one third of transport accidents on construction sites occur on dumpers. This is mainly due to the front load obstructing visibility when driving forward, exposing drivers to major accidents. Based on Mecalac’s user centric innovation process, the company has created a new type of vehicle for smarter and safer material transport—Revotruck. With Revotruck, operators can now rotate the entire cab at the touch of a button to keep their vision and focus on the job. The exclusive chassis with central oscillation ensures stability and traction in all conditions. Designed for ease of use and accessibility, Revotruck is designed to make material transport smarter and safer.
The new development is designed to provide the best working view without the operator physically having to maneuver due to the fully rotating cab of the Revotruck. The “infinite” cab positions open up visibility in all directions, allowing maximum concentration for the drivers on the job. Revotruck has been developed to revolutionize the way to work with a dumper, further enhancing operator safety and well-being. As a result, drivers can constantly maintain the correct body posture and help protect themselves against back problems. Additionally, the machine automatically adapts its behavior to the actual position of the cab (e.g., driving direction, speed, steering). This installed intelligence makes the Revotruck an intuitive and safe transport solution. Inspired by slope tractors, the Revotruck delivers exceptional stability. The central linkage between the two parts of the chassis offers up to 18 degrees of oscillation, ensuring permanent stability and traction in all conditions. This unique chassis is completed by four equally sized wheels with a switchable steering mode (e.g., front steering, all wheel steering, and crab steering) that opens up possibilities for working with superior agility in the tightest spaces. The result is a revolutionary product that combines visibility from the rotating cab with what the company says is outstanding stability thanks to its unique chassis. Associated with ease of use and accessibility, Mecalac claims that the Revotruck takes safety and well-being on the jobsite to a new level.
