Mini speeder


French excavator innovator Mecalac has unveiled a 6-tonne machine that combines the characteristics of a mini and a tracked loader. The 8MCR, available from next year, will enable the user to switch between mini and loader controls at the press of a button. It features a triangular siderail chassis design. This, combined with a hydrostatic transmission, enables a speed of up to 11 kph, mak ing it the fastest mini in the world, according to the firm.
