Mecalac to showcase MRail-Series at IAF 2022
Mecalac, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of compact construction equipment, will be exhibiting at this year’s IAF trade fair, which takes place in Münster, Germany, between 22 May – 2 June. Attracting rail companies from across the globe, Mecalac will showcase its all-new 136MRail rail-road crawler-skid excavator, 216MRail rail-road wheeled excavator and AS1600 wheeled loader.
Mecalac MRail-Series: unrivalled freedom of movement
Launched in September 2021, Mecalac’s MRail-Series consists of 4 rail-road machines: two crawler-skid excavators, the 106MRail and 136MRail (10 and 13 tons respectively); and 2 wheeled excavators, the 156MRail and 216MRail (15 and 20 tons).
Mecalac machines are renowned for their compactness. The MRail-Series is no different, benefitting from compactness at the rear, at the front and in height. Thanks to the patented designs of Mecalac's booms, each model achieves unbeatable stability, exceptional force and outstanding lifting performance. In terms of safety, operators benefit from 360° visibility, daily maintenance from the ground (including for refueling) and ultra-easy access to the cab.
Agility, compactness and performance ensure operators can work with complete freedom of movement in highly constrained areas, such as railway worksites, even under catenaries. Working on rails has never been easier with the Mecalac MRail-Series!
The Mecalac MRail-Series: a solution for every construction site
Whether national railways, private railways, tramways, undergrounds networks, construction, modernisation or maintenance jobsites, requirements can be very different. Add to this the diversity of regulations and track gauges from one site to another and the importance of flexibility becomes clear.
The MRail-Series, which comprises four machines, solves this complex equation with a diverse range of excavators that can meet the varying requirements of different jobsites. This has been made possible by Mecalac's continuous focus on product innovation, which has created new functionalities and model adjustments to suit the evolving constraints of rail networks. Each model is assembled at Mecalac’s production facility in Annecy, France: a guarantee of quality and reliability.
Mecalac is no stranger to the rail industry. Following the success of its 714MW RR and the longevity of its 8MCR RR, Mecalac is committed to strengthening its commitment to the rail sector. With more than 20 years’ experience collaborating with renowned rail partners, the company has developed a solid knowledge base and unmatched industry know-how.
Indeed, Mecalac has created a dedicated rail-road division, responsible for research and development, as well as both product and sales support. The MRail-Series positions Mecalac as a major player in the rail market.
