Mecalac to showcase REVOTRUCK concept at Plantworx 2023
On stand B-EA1 at this year’s Plantworx exhibition (East of England Events Centre, 13-15 June), Mecalac will showcase its industry-defining REVOTRUCK concept to the UK market. The culmination of significant R&D, extensive product innovation and pioneering design advances, the game-changing new model is set to take the sector by storm.
Combining a revolving cabbed dumper with off-road trucking capabilities, REVOTRUCK makes material transport smarter and safer than ever before. Thanks to its unique chassis and central oscillation, operators can safely receive a load before rotating the cab at the touch of a button to face the direction of travel with no visual obstructions.
With two load capacity options – a six-tonne and nine-tonne variant – the revolutionary new model is powered by a Stage V-compliant 74hp Perkins turbocharged engine, delivering 380Nm torque @ 1,380rpm and featuring a DOC and DPF as standard to minimise environmental impact.
Alongside stylish design and state-of-the-art in-cab technology, operators benefit from unrestricted access to all four corners of the cab. This means you can enter and exit the machine quickly and easily, regardless of the position of the operator station. All round visibility reduces downtime for tricky manoeuvres, while three steering modes (2-wheel, 4-wheel and 4-wheel crab) and the tightest turning radius on the market make it the perfect earthmoving solution.
Combining the best of both worlds, REVOTRUCK is a rear dump truck when carrying materials and a highly manoeuvrable site dumper when loading and unloading. Visitors to Plantworx 2023 will be able to see the concept model up close on stand B-EA1, with the official launch set to take place later this year.
In addition to REVOTRUCK, Mecalac will also showcase a number of class-leading models from its latest range of compact construction equipment – from the 8MCR crawler-skid excavator and 9MWR wheeled excavator, to the AX1000 articulated loader, TLB890 backhoe loader, MBR-71 single drum pedestrian roller, 3.5MDX and 6MDX cabbed site dumpers and several ROPS models from its TA site dumper suite. Regardless of application, Mecalac has the perfect solution for every job site.
Mark Royse, Head of Sales at Mecalac Construction Equipment UK, commented: “A brand at the global forefront of compact equipment design and innovation, we’re renowned for our pioneering products, first-to-market technologies and rental-tough build quality.

“REVOTRUCK is a revolutionary concept designed from the ground up, with the key aim of transforming operator thinking when it comes to safety, efficiency and productivity on site. Offering an agile solution, perfect for even the tightest sites, operators benefit from three steering modes (2-wheel, 4-wheel and 4-wheel crab), as well as the tightest turning radius on the market.
“Following it’s preview at Bauma in October 2022 we’re already seeing pre-orders from both the UK and further afield.”
