Safety and Design in a Compact Format
PERFORMANCES: The 3.5MDX is a compact and manoeuvrable machine, providing an effective solution in carrying high payloads in confined spaces, any ground conditions and for a large variety of applications.
COMFORT: This new model adopts Mecalac’s proven MDX cab with optional Air-conditioning to provide an outstanding level of operator well-being in any weather conditions. Like all MDX models, the unique cabin layout minimises vibration and noise, while ergonomic controls and an adjustable seat provide a relaxed environment when working for extended periods.
SAFETY: Alongside the cab conforming to ROPS/FOPS, safety has been prioritised by incorporating MDX design characteristics which results in easier and safer access to the machine, outstanding all around visibility and a higher level of operator protection in any situation.
Mecalac 3.5MDX Walkaround
Thanks to the large stair like steps and full length grab rails the operator is able access the cabin without excess effort or taking any risks. The completely redesigned access system for the MDX site dumpers features large self clearing foot steps organised like a stairway, the solid back plate significantly reduces the risk of material build up on the steps, increasing safety. With a full length hand rail located on the A-pillar and a door mounted hand rail, 3 points of contact can be easily maintained when accessing the cabin.
Whether the fully glazed cabin or ROPS/FOPS canopy with windscreen, operator comfort and ergonomics is always considered. The unique design of the Mecalac MDX range of dumpers is that the cabin or FOPS canopy are mounted on isolating mounts designed to reduce the vibration and noise transmitted to the operator. Well positioned operators controls ensure a comfortable working environment for the operator.
Visibility ISO5006 Compliant
Excellent all around natural visibility and a forward facing camera ensures a safe machine on site that is fully compliant. The cabin or FOPS canopy feature a wide pillar positioning and a curved front windscreen to ensure that natural visibility is maximised, combined with the fully integrated dash board there are no extra screens or brackets that could hamper visibility. The addition of the forward facing camera ensures compliance to ISO5006.
An articulated and oscillating chassis ensures the mdx range of dumpers have excellent manoeuvrability and off-road capability. All Mecalac site dumpers are designed with high ground clearance to enable operation on the roughest terrain, permanent 4 wheel drive and large oscillation angles ensure the wheels keep in contact with the ground and maintain traction in all conditions. Large turning angles ensure the machines remain manoeuvrable so that access to difficult locations remains possible with the 9MDX being the most manoeuvrable dumper in its class!
65 years of dumper production has lead to machines designed specifically to meet the tough demands of new construction sites. ‘Rental Tough’ site dumper design has ensured that Mecalac site dumpers have remained a long lasting and reliable part of your business. The use of solid rear panels ensures the highest level of protection to the cooling pack and engine, the latest design also see the addition of LED lights that are recessed into the casting for excellent protection.
Whether carrying out bulk material movement or working in confined spaces we have a skip design suitable. Choose between the straight tip skip and the swivel tip skip to match the needs of your job site. Straight tip skips offer large volumetric capacity, perfect for bulk material movement. Swing tip skip allows the machine to deposit loads anywhere within a 180° arc, this allows machines to unload into trenches whilst working in a single lane of traffic.
