Mecalac articulated loaders new design
Technically revised and with a
modern design – this is how
Mecalac presents its tried and
tested AX series.
The focus on functionality,
customer benefit and low emis-
sion of the 3 compact wheel
loaders featuring bucket vol-
umes of 0.7 to 1.6 m³ has been
increased even further.
The intelligent engine and
traction drive concept, a cen-
tral multifunction display, the
Mecalac MDrive function and
the review of machine data via
the Mecadiag diagnostic system
noticeably facilitate daily work.
With the new
12MTX, it's virtu-
ally impossible for
the driver to make
machine function can be viewed in real time
on the 7" colour screen. A single selector – a
unique Mecalac feature – enables the 12MTX
to change configuration instantly.
With a simple gesture the driver sets the controls to
those of an excavator or a loader - with all its functions
combined and 'ready for use'.
Also,it can be put into parking or driving mode. At the
flick of a wrist, a construction site will benefit from in-
creased responsiveness, safety and productivity.
