MECALAC Construction Equipment UK has announced plans to show off its 3.5MDX cabbed site dumper at the 2022 Executive Hire Show in Coventry.
Powered by a Stage V-compliant Kubota D1803 1.8L turbocharged 3-cylinder diesel engine, Mecalac said operators benefit from 50hp at 2,700rpm and a peak torque of 150.5Nm at 1,600rpm.
Available in either swivel tip skip with 180° rotation or front tip skip variants, the new model is designed with an articulated and oscillating chassis to enhance manoeuvrability and off-road capability. With high and low range gearing used for both forward and reverse, as well as permanent four-wheel drive, the 3.5MDX delivers torque on demand.
The machine has an operating weight of 2,990kg, length of 3.8m, width of 1.9m, and height of 2.8m. The dumper also features Shield – Mecalac’s package of ‘safety-critical’ operator features as standard.
Mark Royse, head of sales at Mecalac Construction Equipment UK, said, “As a leading event in the construction calendar, the Executive Hire Show provides an excellent platform to showcase some of our ‘rental favourites’ to key decision makers. While a new addition to our product range, the 3.5MDX is already receiving positive reviews from construction professionals worldwide.
“We’re also looking forward to sharing our other latest developments with visitors to the show and their suitability for the equipment hire market.”
