Operators can equip their latest models with telematics functionality and a two-year subscription to MyMecalac Connected Services for less than £400. The offer last until 17th October 2020.
Launched earlier this year, MyMecalac Connected Services is designed to help operators minimise downtime and optimise productivity through real-time equipment data. It provides detailed insight into fuel consumption, unit productivity, service reminders, maintenance alerts, remote diagnostics and geofencing capability.
The Mecalac MCR excavators can switch from compact tracked excavator (with a top speed of 10 km/h) to loader (with 360° rotation capability) within seconds. Available in three variants – 6MCR (0.49m2 bucket capacity), 8MCR (0.53m2 bucket capacity) and 10MCR (0.75m2 bucket capacity) – each unit is powered by a 55kW engine.
The MWR wheeled excavators adopt a wheeled chassis. Four models are available – 7MWR, 9MWR, 11MWR and 15MWR, with different boom options. Incorporating a closed hydrostatic transmission system, each model has both two and four-wheel steer (including a crab option) available. The MWR range can be refuelled from the ground.
The 15MC tracked crawler-excavator can operate within a single traffic lane and is capable of full rotation in less than a 3,140mm space envelope. Kinematics are designed to ensure that all functions can be performed within tight parameters. Models feature a 100kW engine, 500Nm torque and a max pump flow of 270 l/min), and allow diesel and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) refuelling from the ground.

The MTX excavators are a combination of excavator, loader, forklift and tool carrier in a single machine. Equipped with a variable-adjustment boom (with offset), the articulated undercarriage of the excavator allows for a low centre of gravity and stability, while a 140 tilting angle enhances manoeuvrability.
Paul Macpherson, commercial director at Mecalac Construction Equipment UK, commented: “Our latest promotion is intended to get this pioneering technology into our customers’ hands. In doing so, we believe they will benefit from increased uptime and greater productivity."
