The three machines are all powered by Tier 4 Final emissions compliant diesels. The M-1000 has a diesel delivering 73kW while the M-8100 and M-8800 have diesels delivering 129kW. All three models are four-track machines that feature the firm’s latest MFS control system, which includes a remote unit that allows the operator to stand in a position to best view the working area. In addition, the three machines are fitted with the necessary connections so that they are ready to use 3D control technology from key suppliers.

The machines can all be equipped with sophisticated telematics packages that can deliver real time data for remote monitoring. A wide range of options are available for all three models, including urethane and steel track pads and umbrella assemblies.

All three can be configured for right- or left-hand pouring. The versatile M-1000 can pour radii as tight as 610mm, as well as widths up to 1.52m, and measures just 2.59m wide for transport. Moving up in size, the M-8100 features frame widening of up to 1.22m and can be used for shoulder paving up to 3.65m and up to 4.87m for straddle paving. It can also be used for applications such as kerbing or forming barrier walls. The M8800 also offers 1.22m of frame widening and can be used for shoulder paving up to 3.66m wide and straddle paving up to 6.1m wide, as well as barriers up to 2.59m high.
