Mecalac launches new transmission for crawler skid excavators

MECALAC has announced that its 6MCR, 8MCR and 10MCR tracked skid excavators are now equipped with ‘Speed Control’ travel management system as standard.

This new feature allows operators to set a maximum travel speed regardless of engine speed.

With 20 speeds available, Mecalac explained that the transmission acts as a limiter, making it easy to drive at very low speeds for applications such as mowing or planing. This, the manufacturer added, enables operators to concentrate on the task in hand and prioritise safety.
