Mecalac Speed Control System Optimizes Speed Control for Numerous Applications

“Mecalac products are designed to simplify the lives of our users without compromising on performance. Our MCR series provides the quickness of a skid steer with the 360-degree rotation of an excavator for versatility and travel speeds two times faster than any compact excavator. But sometimes speed isn’t everything. Speed Control allows operators to easily match their speed to the task.”

said Peter Bigwood, general manager for Mecalac North America.

With the turn of a dial, operators can easily select their desired speed. When combined with the flexibility from a range of attachments — including mowers, mulchers, sweepers, snowblowers, and many more — the Speed Control system maximizes versatility for all MCR series units, increasing productivity and job site efficiency. Mecalac’s patented quick coupler, CONNECT, another advanced feature standard on the MCR series further increase speed and ease of use by allowing operators to switch between attachments without leaving the cab for greater efficiency in a variety of tasks.

Mecalac offers its innovative “Speed Control” travel speed management system standard on all MCR crawler skid excavator models.

“The MCR series is like a high-tech multi-tool; you really can do it all with a single machine. They don’t need a mower and a skid steer and an excavator. There’s an attachment for every task, and now a speed setting that matches. With Speed Control, operators don’t need to worry about trying to maintain a certain speed; they can just focus on the task at hand.”

Bigwood said.

MCR units also feature Mecalac’s innovative three-part arm and a 360-degree rotating ability for an extended range of movement and game-changing compactness. Operators can do more from a single position or within confined spaces with increased flexibility and reach while minimizing unnecessary movement. The three-part arm can also be tucked in, allowing for extra compactness and mobility without overbalancing the unit in the front — resulting in a true zero-turn radius. In addition, the boom system gives the MCR unprecedented lifting capacities — pound for pound, exceeding anything else on the market.

Mecalac’s new Speed Control travel speed management system allows operators to set and maintain a maximum travel speed for increased safety and productivity.
