MCR: The speed of a loader…combined with the rotation of an excavator
27 April 2019
6/8/10MCR, 360° PROFITABILITY
+100% TRAVELING SPEED
Our MCR excavators can go up to 10km/h (6.2mph) to help you eliminate non-added value from your jobsite. Reducing traveling times compared to other excavators translates into more productivity, optimization of your fleet and a better utilization rate of your machine.
MOBILITY AT THE TIP OF YOUR FINGERS
If you need to go across quite a distance, or simply if you prefer, you can drive your machine with the left joystick.
+77 % LOADED AT EACH BUCKET
MCR excavators can work efficiently with loader buckets. The 8MCR maximum bucket capacity for instance equals 0.53m³ (0.69yd3), that is the bucket size of a 12t excavator. The 10MCR can handle a 0.75m³ (0.98yd3) bucket. That means +77%m3 moved at once compared to traditional excavators. Plus loader buckets allow you to spread material or fine grade ground level in one pass only, without the need to swing or move the boom, thus drastically reducing your total cycle time.
-35 % SWING RADIUS
A 8MCR features a total swing radius of 2698mm (8’10’’); this equals the total radius of a 2t excavator. MCR excavators offer a true 360° compact radius, not only to the rear (1254mm-4’1’’), but also to the front (1444mm-4’9’’). Because it makes no sense to have a compact rear radius if the front is not and does not let you swing in tight areas.
THE RIGHT KINEMATICS FOR ALL WORKS
Quick, precise trench digging, close to a wall or parallel to the machine, lifting loads, laying pallets over an obstacle or under the ground level… whatever the challenge, an MCR excavator can handle it and bring solutions to complex jobsite conditions and logistics. The famous patented Mecalac boom folds 130° backwards to offer maximum stability, acting as a natural counterweight. Mecalac MCR diggers can lift 40% of their own weight. Just because they are the only small excavators with the boom at the side of the cab, and not at the front. In addition to that, this kinematics allows you to work close to the machine while still offering a great reach.
EASY OPERATION EXCAVATOR OR LOADER IN ONE SWITCH
Thanks to the main selector, the operator can control and use his excavator like a loader, boosting his productivity.
The MCR Series are able to use skid and loader buckets, in the reversed position. This means you can push and load much bigger volumes. The bucket is supported against the blade so that the force of the thrust is transmitted directly from the undercarriage to the bucket.
COMPACTNESS DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU SHOULD FEEL PACKED
You deserve a real cab, not a mini compact one. Who said that on small excavators comfort should be downgraded? Certainly not Mecalac. Whichever option you choose, you’ll get a spacious cab, with sufficient legroom and optimum visibility and with a standard 2-piece windshield.
360° SOLUTIONS FOR REDUCING FUEL CONSUMPTION
Built-in fuel savers are evident solutions to reduce your fuel consumption. You’ll get these with Mecalac MCR excavators, such as the automatic low idle, the automatic engine shutdown or a fan on-demand. But there are also wider solutions: like optimizing machine utilization rate for instance. Having a machine able to carry out the work of two different products allows you to remove one machine from the jobsite, therefore further reduce service and overall operating costs.
