Mecalac introduced its MR50 and MR60 Tiltrotators to the North American market. The MR50 is available as an option for the 9MWR and 11MWR wheeled excavators and the 10MCR crawler-skid excavator. The MR60 is available for the 15MWR wheeled excavator and 15MC crawler excavator.

The system includes a tiltrotator fitted between two quick couplers, along with a grading bucket specially 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. Integrating the two quick couplers makes it possible to detach the tiltrotator when it’s not needed.

“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.”

Mecalac wheeled excavators position the boom further back along the cab to act as a counterweight and according to the company, the two-piece boom with offset kinematics allows the operator to position tools more precisely when used with the tiltrotator.

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. 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. Mecalac tiltrotators come with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
