Mecalac will launch the 10MCR, the latest addition to its range of multifunction excavators at Intermat 2012.

Mecalac will launch the 10MCR, the latest addition to its range of multifunction excavators. The company's unique boom design means its MCR machines can be used as an excavator, loader or materials handler.

This 9 tonne machine adds to the 7 tonne class 8MCR which was launched at the last Intermat, and features the same 10 km travel speed. Although the multi-piece boom may look intimidating, Mecalac says the MCR10 is easy to use, with two basic operating modes allowing it to be operated as either a compact loader or excavator with a standard ISO control pattern.

Also new is the AS 900 Tele, a new telescopic wheeled loader with a swinging boom. The machine will appear under the Mecalac brand for the first time, as opposed to the previous Ahlmann brand, as part of a changeover to a single identity for the company.

Features of the As 900 Tele include a 63 kW engine and 0.9 m3 to 1.4 m3 bucket. The boom can swivel up to 90° in either direction and it offers a maximum dump height of 4.01 m or a stacking height of 4.72 m.
