Mecalac MRail-Series: the strength of experience and know-how.
Following the 714MW RR, the long-lasting success of the 8MCR RR and the exceptional start of the 216MRail last year, Mecalac is now offering a brand new range of rail-road excavators, the MRail-Series. The manufacturer has been working with renowned rail partners for over 20 years. Mecalac has acquired a solid expertise from this partnership regarding this highly specialized and very demanding segment.
Mecalac is now strongly positioned in this international market and has just set up a new division dedicated to the rail business, from research and development to product and sales support. This organisation builds on Mecalac’s assembly-lines processes and quality standards, as well as on a worldwide dealer network.
The MRail-Series machines are assembled on Mecalac’s production lines. This gives the manufacturer the means to target and meet efficiently the specific needs of this market, while benefiting from a solid industrial organisation; an essential guarantee of product reliability and an undeniable advantage over local processors.
4 MRail machines: a solution for every jobsite.
The rail market is vast: national railways, private tracks, tramways, underground networks. Track gauges and regulations vary from country to country. Jobsites requirements are also very different, depending on whether they are focused on maintenance, modernization or construction of new tracks. Taking all these parameters into account, Mecalac’s MRail-Series is able to offer you the right machine for your needs.
The 106MRail and 136MRail tracked excavators build on the MCR concept. This concept, the fusion of a compact loader and an excavator, brings the speed and productivity of a loader to the 360° rotation of an excavator. They are designed to be the ultimate utility machine for the majority of service and maintenance works. They are also ideal for works in tunnels or in tight areas.
The 106MRail is the smallest machine of the MRail-Series. It features a two-piece boom with offset as standard and is extremely compact. Easy to operate, it is also the ideal support for heavier piece of equipment.
The 136MRail provides even higher performance to increase overall productivity on national rail networks. It is equipped with the upmost safety features. It can be fitted with a pneumatic system for rail trailers and rail car brakes.
The 156MRail and 216MRail wheeled excavators are based on the MWR concept. They provide solutions for all types of tracks and a high degree of freedom of movement, especially when moving the boom under height constraints like catenaries.
The 156MRail is dedicated to urban networks, subways and private tracks. It is a medium-sized machine that meets the requirements for rail applications without the costly and complex systems linked to regulations. It is the easiest and most profitable solution for working on rails.
The 216MRail is the strongest machine for the toughest jobs, always with zero compromise on maneuverability, agility and compactness. It is compatible with the EN15746 regulation, the most stringent regulation for the rail segment. It has all the necessary safety features and the pneumatic system for trailers.
Working on rails has never been easier with Mecalac
This new range of rail-road excavators combines high performance and agility to let you work with unrivaled freedom of movement in the highly constrained areas of the rail industry.
True compactness is not just a matter of rear radius. Not obstructing the adjacent track and working in areas where very little space is available: at the rear, at the front and in height: this is true compactness.
Superior balance is the basis of the numerous benefits of the Mecalac MRail-Series. The patented design of our booms gives the machine an outstanding weight distribution for balance and force.
Add in the Mecalac’s unique architecture, and you achieve best-in-class stability for exceptional lifting performances. Full 360° direct visibility is a major safety benefit for both the operator and the people on site. Mecalac also offers unique solutions: maintenance from the ground level, including for refueling, easy access to the cab, direct visibility that all bare no comparison… This helps you tackle complex tasks on rails with more peace of mind.
Compactness, stability, safety, agility, performance and versatility, Mecalac’s MRail-Series rail-road excavators offer the best solution in the market.
The rail industry is booming all over the world. Rail-road excavators are the best tools not only for the maintenance of existing networks but also for the construction of new tracks. Mecalac is convinced that it can provide solutions that will revolutionize rail-road excavators and change the lives of users.
