Skid-excavator high-speed

World Innovation: MCR Series

Change from Excavator to Skid Steer mode by turning a switch

Developments and the attention paid to changes in the needs of the professionals who create our urban landscapes have been at the heart of Mecalac's preoccupations since the company was founded. By combining an excavator and a compact loader in the same machine the MCR series embodies these values and represents a revolution in the way sites are approached. The 8MCR, 7,2 to 7,6 tonnes; depending on configuration, reachs 10 km/h in a few seconds. Convinient switching from the excavator mode to the loader mode, the very quick change of tools with Connect, are only some advantages of this revolutionary concept.

Our Vision: A single Machine

Thanks to a simple selector-switch, Mecalac patent, the driver can turn his compact excavator into a compact loader and then back again, using the same commands. Loading efficiency is maximized, it is made by the skid bucket supported on the blade which increases the machine’s efficiency thanks to the force of the thrust transmitted directly from the chassis to the bucket. The operation is performed more accurately using the control lever. The patented Mecalac cylinder coupling function, allows to synchronize the boom cylinders for perfect movement coordination and precision. It makes driving and handling easy, regardless of whether the operator is a novice or more experienced. And, whether engaged or otherwise, they’re yet another powerful feature along for the ride.
