Mecalac to put on a show at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
These 20-minute, choreographed displays will take place hourly at the company’s booth
Mecalac has planned an array of hourly equipment demonstrations throughout CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. These 20-minute, choreographed displays will take place at the company's booth and will highlight the mobility, productivity and versatility of Mecalac's equipment in a number of common jobsite applications. Demonstration models include the 9MWR wheeled excavator, the 6MCR crawler skid-excavator, the AS700 swing-loader and 6MDX dumper.
During the CONEXPO-CON/AGG demonstrations, attendees will see the stability, accessibility and 360-degree compactness of the 9MWR. Like all models in the MWR series, the 9MWR offers operators optimum stability regardless of the rotation angle of the upper carriage. The series also features cabins that are 20 percent lower than comparable models and centered, integrated steps for ease of access. And, at just 90.9 inches wide (231 centimetres), the 9MWR is 2.5 times more compact than a traditional excavator. This, combined with 4-wheel steering, allows enhanced turning mobility in narrow spaces.
Mecalac's 6MCR will demonstrate the productivity and efficiency possible from its MCR series. With speeds up to 6.2 mph (10 kmh), the 6MCR is up to two times faster than comparable compact excavators. It features the lineup's hydrostatic transmission motor, allowing operators to move up to 26 cubic feet (.75 cubic metres) of material at 6.2 mph (10 kmh). The 6MCR's 360-degree compactness is ideal for congested worksites, offering industry-leading stability with a smaller footprint to safely navigate the tightest spaces.
Attendees will also witness the space management offered by the AS700. All models in the AS Series, including the AS700, provide industry-leading stability in all positions and on all terrains. It's design allows operators to pivot the bucket up to 180 degrees without any loss of stability for greater flexibility and utilization in tight spaces. Three steering modes – 2 wheel, 4 wheel and crab – allow contractors to simultaneously drive, operate and rotate for maximum mobility. In combination with the 180-degree swivel arm, this maneuverability provides a rotation footprint 20 percent smaller than conventional loaders for optimal space management.
The 6.6-ton payload (6,000-kilograms) 6MDX will also be part of the CONEXPO-CON/AGG demonstrations. The MDX series has large cabins with enhanced visibility and standard forward-facing ISO5006 compliant cameras. The 6MDX also features large steps, organized like a stairway, and full-length handrails to ensure safe access and egress.

The all-new CASE TR340B compact track loader — operating at 90 horsepower with a 3,400-pound rated operating capacity — is the most powerful radial-lift CTL in the CASE lineup. Its all-new 8-inch LCD display improves on industry-leading CASE visibility with a new backup camera that is viewable in both forward and reverse operation. The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
