Manufacturer adds telematics resource to site dumpers

MECALAC Construction Equipment UK has confirmed the international roll-out of telematics connectivity across its site dumper portfolio.

The move means the latest models can now be equipped with MyMecalac Connected Services, either as a factory option or as a retrofit kit.

Mecalac said the resource helps operators to minimise downtime and optimise productivity through real-time data on issues such as fuel consumption, service reminders, maintenance alerts, remote diagnostics, and geofencing capability.

Comprising a web portal and mobile app, the service highlights machines in need of immediate care and helps prevent potential breakdowns.

Mark Royse, head of sales at Mecalac Construction Equipment UK, said, “MyMecalac Connected Services provides owners and operators with an incredibly powerful tool to manage their machines. Rolling out the state-of-the-art solution across our site dumper portfolios will help construction professionals to further increase equipment uptime and maximise productivity.”

The service also includes a start-up digicode unit, which requires operators to enter a specific code before starting the engine.

Mark Royse added, “With equipment security paramount, especially for hire fleets, the inclusion of our start-up digicode system ensures complete peace-of-mind. At Mecalac, we are streamlining the ownership experience and bringing game-changing technology to our world-leading site dumpers.”
