Mecalac, a leading global designer, manufacturer and distributor of compact construction equipment for urban environments, will demo the 9MWR Wheeled Excavator and other innovative products at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, Booth F2658, in Festival Grounds.
The 9MWR offers a revolutionary design – recognized by innovation awards – that addresses pain points often encountered with small wheeled excavators. The up to 19,841-pound machine has outstanding stability and is 20% lower to the ground than similar products, making it easier and safer for the operator to get in and out. The design also improves accessibility for the operator, with direct access to the cab and to the fuel tank from the ground. At the same time, the 9MWR has a high ground clearance to reduce the risk of undercarriage damage from obstacles on the ground. While featuring an unbeatable swing diameter, the compactness enhances in-turn mobility in narrow spaces with four steering wheels. Despite its compact size, the 55.4-kilowatt (75-horsepower) machine can lift as much as 3 tons up to 3 meters (9.8 feet). The company’s patented hydraulic quick coupler also enhances safety by allowing the operator to control it from the cab while the bracket design makes it virtually impossible for the tool or bucket to detach while in operation.
