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.

New

12MTX

with single

selector

With the new

12MTX, it's virtu-

ally impossible for

the driver to make

mistakes.

Using the

selector, every

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.

Caterpillar Upgraded Backhoe Loaders

For Africa, Middle East, Turkey, CIS, Australia, New Zealand

Caterpillar is building on its highly successful range of F-Series

backhoe loaders with the introduction of the new F2-Series

range of machines—422F2, 428F2, 432F2, 434F2, and 444F2.

The new models feature an all-new operator’s environment,

and engine technology enhances machine performance and

saves fuel.

The cab has been restyled for a more modern look and has

been designed throughout with the operator in mind, includ-

ing enhanced visibility to the loader attachment when at full

height.

Machine-control ergonomics have been improved with a

new telescopic/tilt steering column, and the differential-lock

control has been repositioned to the loader controller.

Pilot-operated machines feature new variable excavator

controls that enable operators to adjust to the most comfort-

able operating position, reducing fatigue. A forward/reverse

controller is built into the loader controller for added conveni-

ence and improved efficiency.

Depending on the model, engine-power choices include

56.5 kW (76.8 hp), 68.5 kW (93hp), 70 kW (95 hp), or 74.5 kW

(101 hp) configurations.
