WHEELED EXCAVATORS

MECALAC CREATES NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR WHEELED EXCAVATORS

Wheeled excavators are at the heart of Mecalac’s business activity, and the company has established itself as a major player in this market through its fundamentally distinctive machine ranges. At Mecalac, we believe that industrial offers of vehicles for construction and public works need to have innovation at their core, which is why we constantly strive to find new, practical solutions for construction sites.

Using the solid strategy of observing its customers’ work and construction sites, Mecalac has been able to identify an area for improvement for wheeled excavators: their stability. The very architecture of this type of vehicle, connected to an oscillating axle under the undercarriage and an upper carriage, gives it an intrinsically higher center of gravity. This results in a lack of stability which leads to discomfort and insecurity. On top of this, the inconvenient height of the cab means that the operator is forced to adopt unnatural, sometimes even hazardous, positions. In addition, the position of the diesel tank in the upper part is not ideal for using a refueling system.

It is these three key issues of stability, accessibility and refueling that Mecalac is tackling with its new wheeled excavator concept: the MWR range.

SOLUTIONS FOR THE USER

Lowering the center of gravity has proved to be the key. There is nothing more stable than a telescopic vehicle, as it must be inherently stable in order to carry out its main role: handling loads in motion. One of the techniques used to guarantee maximum safety is the installation of the cab as low as possible between the wheels. The design process therefore drifted naturally towards the distinctive architecture of this machine. The solution was found in the fusion of a telescopic loader and a wheeled excavator.

Rather than add new solutions to its existing wheeled excavator ranges, Mecalac’s designers decided to create a new concept: a combination of the rotation of a wheeled excavator and the stability of a telescopic handling vehicle. All the components in the upper carriage have been lowered as much as possible, and the shapes of the upper carriage and undercarriage have been completely redesigned around the oscillation of the wheels. The goal was to fit the upper carriage as low as possible between the wheels while still retaining its full rotation, essential development criteria for improving the dynamic stability of the future Mecalac excavator. With the announcement of Mecalac’s MWR range, a new standard of lifting stability and performance has been born.

Mecalac 15MWR

One of the main design aims was to create an iconic vehicle whose functions are clearly manifested in a cohesive and balanced architecture. The continuity of the lines and the tension of the surfaces give the machine a unique dynamism which fully showcases its mobility and stability. The high level of attention to detail and the shrewd use of new components and technologies have enabled us to make significant progress in the domain of vehicles for construction and public works. This coveted stability can be clearly seen in the shape of the machine, where the rotating upper carriage is solidly integrated into the undercarriage. The continuity of the lines between the upper and lower parts showcases this integration by “anchoring” the machine to the ground.

A PRACTICAL DESIGN

Diesel refueling: Drivers fill the diesel tank on a daily basis. Thanks to a new swivel joint which is essential to maintaining full rotation, the tank, traditionally positioned on the upper carriage, has been integrated into the lower undercarriage, between the wheels. At shoulder-height, using the refueling system is simple, quick and safe. Without a diesel pump, this is a unique advantage from Mecalac.

There are also many different maintenance operations that the driver must carry out to guarantee the machine’s performance and longevity. The mechanisms in question, such as the engine and hydraulic pumps, which have been lowered as much as possible in line with the new architecture, are now accessible from the ground without the operator having to climb into the machine and putting himself or the technician at risk. Operations can now be carried out efficiently and easily.

Cab accessibility: The height drivers must climb to access the driver’s compartment in the MWR machines has been reduced. The two handrails, left and right, can be gripped without drivers needing to twist their arms or wrists. Climbing down has also been designed ergonomically, as the feet fall naturally into position on the steps, with no risk of slipping. All problems linked to driver’s compartment access, such as falls, fractures, and muscle problems, are significantly reduced by this new architecture designed specifically to ensure the comfort and safety of users.

Dynamic stability: The shape of the machine itself is a clear display of its stability, as its upper carriage is fully inserted in the undercarriage. This lowered center of gravity helps to naturally anchor the machine towards the ground. Horizontal travel, including load handling, showcases the perfect balance of this new Mecalac wheeled excavator. The user interface has also been completely redesigned. With just one selector on the dashboard, the operator has the simple choice between one of three functions: park, work, or drive. The entire machine, complete with its oscillating axle, engine speed control and lights, adapts automatically to the selected sequence. Man and machine maneuver in perfect safety, day-to-day tasks are handled easily, and site performance and productivity are guaranteed.

A SOLID DESIGN STRATEGY

Mecalac excavators operate in urban and peri-urban environments, and their modern architecture blends in with their surroundings. Their innovative and distinctive design contributes to the visual identity of the brand.

Beyond the challenge, producing architectural excellence directly through innovation is an integral part of Mecalac’s DNA. The new Mecalac wheeled excavator has not only become a practical, efficient and profitable work tool, but stands out from the competition thanks to its design which fits seamlessly into the urban environment.

The MWR from Mecalac, was awarded the Bauma Innovation Award 2016 in Germany.

World premier

The 9MWR (9 ton) and the 15MWR (15 ton) models are available in this new range. They are premiering at CONEXPO 2017, Las Vegas.

12MTX

The 12MTX, 2016 version, a 9.7 to machine equipped with an 80kW engine, offers various improvements for even better ergonomics, safety, flexibility, functionality, and reactivity.

A single selector – a unique Mecalac feature – enables the 12MTX to change configuration instantly. With an obviously simple gesture the driver sets the controls to those of an excavator or a loader - with all its functions combined and “ready for use”. Equally easy it can be put into parking or driving mode. At the flick of a wrist a construction site will benefit from increased responsiveness, safety and thus profitability.

Mecalac 12MTX

Getting in and out of the cab is one major reason for many on-site accidents. In 2016 it is no longer suitable that drivers are climbing onto wheels and slipping. Now there is a new patented solution from Mecalac, which comes as a standard on the 12MTX. A step is automatically driven out when the operator raises the console to leave the cab.

The 12MTX from Mecalac, received an “Etoile du Design” award from the French Minister of Economy, Design, Industry and Information Technology on December 9, 2014.

CRAWLER EXCAVATORS

6MCR HIGH-SPEED SKID-EXCAVATOR (6 TON)

The 6MCR is equipped with the Mecalac attachment. The Kinematics® mechanism patented by Mecalac is the common denominator of all Mecalac excavators and gives them one of Mecalac’s unique and unequalled values: the compact design in width, length and height. This allows the operator to adapt to all situations to work closer to the machine, to dig a trench behind a wall or a crash barrier, to lay sand, to load in the narrowest alleys and in the most difficult sites. The attachment is at the center of the three essential functions of the 6MCR: digging, loading and lifting. These functions are instantly activated by changing tools in just seconds, without leaving the cab, thanks to the CONNECT® quick coupler. With this hydraulic tool holder, the Mecalac attachment allows the 6MCR unit to excel in each of these tasks, to exceed the user’s expectations, to bring an undeniable advantage in performance, agility, compact design, profitability and quality.

8MCR HIGH-SPEED SKID EXCAVATOR (7.2/7.6* TON)

The 8MCR can move at a speed of up to 6.2 mph. This new concept is a fine example of how innovative design can combine comfort, productivity, economy and improved working methods with the protection of the environment. A simple selector switch lets the driver change from compact excavator mode to compact loader mode, and then back again, all using the same commands. The Mecalac CONNECT® attachment means that a tool can be changed in just a few seconds, without the need to get down from the cab. The control lever functionality is a major innovation; it allows the operator to switch over to loader mode, thus significantly improving productivity, ease of use and site organization.
