Evolution of the Mecalac MCR Series crawler skid excavators’ transmissionPublished 30/12, 2020 at 10:16
The Mecalac 6MCR, 8MCR and 10MCR tracked skid excavators are now equipped as standard with the ‘Speed Control’ travel speed management system.
This new feature allows the setting of a maximum travel speed, from the slowest to the fastest, regardless of the engine speed. For the comfort of operators this transmission acts as a limiter, with 20 speed levels being available. The feature makes it easy to drive at very low speeds for applications such as mowing or planning, with the limiter enabling operators to free themselves from speed control for greater concentration on the task at hand and for greater safety. This development is part of the manufacturer's approach to simplifying the lives of users without compromising performance.
