MDX, new Mecalac Cab Dumpers
Re-imagining dumpers: a major challenge in urban construction projects
Dumpers evolved as a mechanical complement to excavators and loaders, dedicated to repetitive tasks of loading and unloading the bucket all day long. The driver is permanently exposed and therefore has to mount and dismount from the machine as much as 50 times a day, depending on the application, especially when he also has to handle an excavator in parallel to the dumper. Falls entering and exiting the machine are the most frequent causes of accidents on a construction site and even more serious is the risk that the machine rolls over due to an imbalanced load or is unknowingly working on an uneven soil ground. So whilst the dumper is an essential tool which is compact and easy to drive, in certain site applications there are additional considerations to take into account and Mecalac have developed it’s solution to meet these needs in an effort to minimise accidents on construction sites.
