Mecalac to demo wheeled excavator at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
The 7MWR is designed for safer operator accessibility
will demo the and other products at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020.
The 7MWR offers a design that Mecalac says addresses pain points often encountered with small wheeled excavators. The up to 16,204-pound machine has outstanding stability and is 20 percent 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 7MWR has a high ground clearance to reduce the risk of undercarriage damage from obstacles on the ground. The compactness enhances in-turn mobility in narrow spaces with four-wheel steering. Despite its compact size, the 55.4-kilowatt (75-hp) machine can lift as much as 3 tons up to 3 metres (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.
