Mecalac introduces new 12MTX wheeled excavator
Mecalac's 12MTX offers versatility
Mecalac is introducing its new 12MTX wheeled excavator, which the company says retains “the basic characteristics and avant-garde design” that made the initial version successful.
Powered by an engine rated at 80kW and with a maximum weight of 9.7tonnes, the company says the 12MTX makes it possible to have an excavator, a loader, a forklift and a tool carrier in a single machine, and to augment the capacities of these functions due to the specific characteristics such as the articulated boom and frame, the lowered centre of gravity, the rotation of the superstructure, and the cab mounted on the right-hand side.
“With the New 12MTX numerous features have been combined in order to increase the performance of each function,” says Mecalac, which recently received an Etoile du Design award for the 12MTX from the French Minister for the Economy, Design, Industry and Information Technology at a ceremony for the Etoiles de l'Observeur du Design 2015 in Paris.
The Design Stars honour the provision of design in everyday products and services, both for their technical and practical aspects and for their aesthetics.
