Mecalac introduced its AX1000 articulated loader. The AX1000 features a monoboom, which provides greater boom rigidity and strength and resisting the twisting that can occur with the traditional two-arm setup.

“Articulated loaders are tried and true workhorses in North America,” said Peter Bigwood, general manager for Mecalac North America. “When that’s what the job calls for, we have a high-quality option that has good value-adds in terms of stability, visibility, power, simplified maintenance and operator experience that will offer owners a competitive advantage.”

The single boom allows clearer visibility for users and the unit also offers greater stability because the machine’s pivot joint is offset at a positive angle. As the machine articulates, the center of gravity is transferred to the rear, so it can re-level itself, greatly reducing the risk of the machine toppling over. Along with the safety benefits, greater stability also opens up opportunities to expand use through different attachments, such as forks and snow pushers.

The AX1000 has a standard bucket volume of 1.3 cubic yards, a 75-horsepower engine and a lift capacity of 9,038 pounds. The loaded can travel up to 19 miles per hour.

The pilot controls condense multiple functions from the auxiliary hydraulics into one joystick. The cabin includes a multi-position comfort seat, glove box with ample storage space and a powerful three-stage ventilation and heating system.
