Mecalac Launches Multifunctional Compact Loader Line to the North American Market


Mecalac recently announced the launch of a new line of compact loaders to the North American market. Comprised of 6 models, the series presents versatility and agility for industries ranging from agriculture to landscape, forestry, snow removal, utility and construction. New hydraulic and maneuverability options, such as M-Drive and Speed Control, ensure versatility of the machines in terms of both application and industry.

“Time and space to complete jobs is increasingly limited,” said Peter Bigwood, general manager for Mecalac North America. “To enable our customers to be more productive, we developed a line of compact loaders the size of a skid steer but with features and functionality not found on other machines this size. Whether being used in agriculture to push silage or as a replacement for a compact track loader on a construction site, these multi-functional loaders provide unparalleled versatility for growth and tackling new applications.”

The M-Drive and speed control features allow the loader to function as a tool carrier, providing control of RPM by hand throttle and speed via a foot pedal. This enables more precise and controlled operation of a wide variety of hydraulic attachments.

The ability to redefine the speed range via the foot pedal provides supplemental benefits for particular applications – for example, choosing a lower speed allows for enhanced accuracy on precise applications, such as flail mowing, sweeping or when using log grapple attachments. Both Speed Control and M-Drive come standard on the MCL6 and MCL8 models and are options for the MCL2 and MCL4 models.

Each model in the series has an option for auxiliary hydraulic lines on the boom and at the rear of the machine as well as 12V 3 pole plugs, further enhancing versatility by allowing the ability to use hydraulic attachments on either end of the machine. The MCL series maximizes attachment possibilities with 30 l/min flow on the MCL2 and MCL4 models and 60 l/min flow on the MCL6 and MCL8 models.

The MCL4+ and MCL6+ models come standard with a short boom, which offers a better tipping load, whereas the other 4 models come with a long boom which maximizes tipping height. Long or short boom, the MCL series machines yield multi-functionality through compatibility with a wide range of attachments. With its hydraulic and electric auxiliary lines, the MCL series is perfect for snow removal because a snow blade can be mounted on the front and a salt spreader on the rear of the machine.

The MCL series’ optimum height-to-width-to-length ratio ensures agility on any jobsite. Each machine has a 45° articulation that keeps the front wheels traveling in the same path as the rear wheels while driving. A 10° oscillation allows a strong follow-up and maximum traction wherever the machine might travel, including on uneven ground. The MCL2 and 4 models have a 25-hp engine, with travel speeds up to 11.2 km/h for the MCL2, and 19.3 km/h for MCL4 and 4+. The remaining models come with a 49-hp engine and travel up to 19.3 km/h with an included option for travel speeds up to 30.5 km/h.

Each machine in the MCL series offers easy transportability between jobsites with low transport weight and minimal width.

Safety continues to be a key focus for Mecalac in the MCL series with easy accessibility for entering the cab or refueling from a solid ground footing, reducing the risk of falls. Additionally, the machines offer enhanced side and top visibility over similar sized skid steers.

MyMecalac Connected services offer the option to remotely manage an equipment fleet with access to all machine usage data, providing owners the information needed to minimize machine downtime through preventive maintenance. Operations can add the telematics box installation, which comes with a 2-year subscription, to any MCL model they choose.
