Mecalac swing loader bucket pivots 90 degrees to either side
The Mecalac AS1600 swing loader is the latest addition to Mecalac's swing loader lineup. These machines have the unique ability to pivot the fully loaded wheel loader bucket 90 degrees to either side without reducing machine stability.
According to Mecalac, a rigid frame and 4-wheel steering provide productivity and stability while driving, operating and unloading in virtually any condition or terrain. The AS1600 needs half the space of conventional loaders for tasks such as loading trucks or discharging materials into trenches with a standard 2.1-cubic-yard (1.6-cubic-metre) bucket.
Steering options include 2-wheel, 4-wheel and crab and operators can simultaneously drive, pivot and maneuver, increasing productivity and safety and making common tasks, such as backfilling a trench, easier and more efficient.
Bucket capacities range from 2.1 to 3.3 cubic yards (1.6 to 2.5 cubic metres).

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.
When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
