Mecalac has introduced its MR50 and MR60 Tiltrotators to the North American market.

Designed with versatility, 360-degree compactness and functional features, Mecalac excavators fitted with the new tiltrotators support utility, landscaping, sewer and water applications.

The MR50 Tiltrotator is available as an option for the 9MWR and 11MWR wheeled excavators and the 10MCR crawler-skid excavator. The MR60 Tiltrotator is available for the 15MWR wheeled excavator and 15MC crawler excavator. Both tiltrotators come equipped with the twin Connect coupling system for compatibility with other Mecalac work tools.

“Placing a Mecalac tiltrotator between two Connect quick couplers is an innovative solution that further enhances the versatility and productivity Mecalac excavators are known for,” said Peter Bigwood, general manager for Mecalac North America. “Thanks to this new mounting, the operator can easily remove either the tool or the entire tiltrotator system to immediately resume work with a 4-in-1 or standard loader bucket.”

The system includes a tiltrotator fitted between two CONNECT quick couplers along with a grading bucket designed to match the machine and system. The Mecalac MR50 and MR60 Tiltrotators allow for 360-degree rotation in both directions as well as a 40-degree tilt left and right for various attachments, including hydromechanical tools such as grapples.

The integration between the two quick couplers makes it possible to detach the tiltrotator when it’s not needed—for digging and lifting, for instance—and resume work with another attachment, such as a loader bucket.

The Mecalac MR50 and MR60 Tiltrotator options include dedicated multi-function joysticks, various tiltrotator configurations and settings as well as “Home”—return to operator preset position—and “Bucket Shake”—or pulse—functions for material spreading. The Mecalac tiltrotators are available with or without a grab module. Acting as a gripper, the module allows objects to be grabbed and moved while keeping the tool mounted on the tiltrotator.

In the future, the Mecalac tiltrotators will be introduced for the 8MCR crawler skid excavator, followed by the 12MTX wheeled excavator loader.
